Expand description


The pearl library is an asyncronous Append only key-value blob storage on disk. Crate pearl provides Futures 0.3 interface. Tokio runtime required. Storage follows no harm policy, which means that it won’t delete or change any of the stored data.


The following example shows a storage building and initialization. For more advanced usage see the benchmark tool as the example

use pearl::{Storage, Builder, ArrayKey};

async fn main() {
    let mut storage: Storage<ArrayKey<8>> = Builder::new()
    let key = ArrayKey::<8>::default();
    let data = b"Hello World!".to_vec();
    storage.write(key, data.into()).await.unwrap();



  • Basic info about current build.
  • Types representing various errors that can occur in pearl.
  • bloom filter for faster check record contains in blob
  • tools to interact with pearl structures


  • Key for demonstration purposes
  • Timestamp
  • Is used to initialize a Storage.
  • Entry is a [Future], which contains header and metadata of the record, but does not contain all of the data in memory.
  • IO driver for file operations
  • Struct representing additional meta information. Helps to distinguish different version of the records with the same key.
  • A main storage struct.



  • Trait Key
  • Trait for reference key type
