Indexed Database API 2.0 is now a W3C Recommendation

January 30th, 2018

Indexed DBThe Web Platform Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation of the Indexed Database API 2.0 specification.

The Indexed Database API 2.0 specification 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.
