Call for Review: Indexed Database API 2.0 is a W3C Proposed Recommendation

November 16th, 2017

The Web Platform Working Group has published a Proposed Recommendation of Indexed Database API 2.0. This document defines APIs for a database of records holding simple values and hierarchical objects. Each record consists of a key and some value. Moreover, the database maintains indexes over records it stores. An application developer directly uses an API to locate records either by their key or by using an index. A query language can be layered on this API. An indexed database can be implemented using a persistent B-tree data structure. Comments are welcome through 14 December 2017.
