Skytable client

This library is the official client for the free and open-source NoSQL database Skytable. First, go ahead and install Skytable by following the instructions here. This library supports all Skytable versions that work with the Skyhash 1.0 Protocol. This version of the library was tested with the latest Skytable release (release 0.6).

Using this library

This library only ships with the bare minimum that is required for interacting with Skytable. Once you have Skytable installed and running, you’re ready to follow this guide!

We’ll start by creating a new binary application and then running actions. Create a new binary application by running:

cargo new skyapp

Tip: You can see a full list of the available actions here.

First add this to your Cargo.toml file:

skytable = "0.3.0"

Now open up your src/ file and establish a connection to the server while also adding some imports:

use skytable::{Connection, Query, Response, Element};
fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    let mut con = Connection::new("", 2003)?;

Now let’s run a Query! Change the previous code block to:

use skytable::{Connection, Query, Response, Element};
fn main() -> std::io::Result<()> {
    let mut con = Connection::new("", 2003)?;
    let query = Query::from("heya");
    let res = con.run_simple_query(&query)?;
    assert_eq!(res, Response::Item(Element::String("HEY!".to_owned())));

Way to go — you’re all set! Now go ahead and run more advanced queries!

Going advanced

Now that you know how you can run basic queries, check out the actions module documentation for learning to use actions and the types module documentation for implementing your own Skyhash serializable types.

Async API

If you need to use an async API, just change your import to:

skytable = { version = "0.3.0", features=["async"], default-features=false }

You can now establish a connection by using skytable::AsyncConnection::new(), adding .awaits wherever necessary. Do note that you’ll the Tokio runtime.

Using both sync and async APIs

With this client driver, it is possible to use both sync and async APIs at the same time. To do this, simply change your import to:

skytable = { version="0.3.0", features=["sync", "async"] }

A macro that can be used to easily create queries with almost variadic properties. Where you’d normally create queries like this:



An async connection object that wraps around aTcpStream and a read buffer


A Connection is a wrapper around aTcpStream and a read buffer


This struct represents a single simple query as defined by the Skyhash protocol



Data Types


Response codes returned by the server
