Persistent Data

How to store and retrieve persistent data from disk using the built-in system.

In nanos world it is possible to store and retrieve data from disk with simple functions.

tip

It is possible to store Persistent Data in both Client and Server!

File Format​

The persistent data is automatically stored in the TOML format in the file PersistentData.toml inside your Package/ folder. This file is only created if you call Package.SetPersistentData().

Storing and Retrieving data​

All PersistentData files are loaded automatically when the Package loads and stored in memory. You can easily access the whole file with Package.GetPersistentData() method.

For storing data you will need to pass a key value, which will store any lua value in that key.

Examples​

local my_table = {
my_id = 123,
my_data_02 = "data"
}

Package.SetPersistentData("awesome_table", my_table)

-- PersistentData.toml will be:
-- awesome_table = {my_id = 123, my_data_02 = "data"}
local my_table = Package.GetPersistentData().awesome_table

Package.Log(my_table.my_id)

-- Will print:
-- 123
