What is TerrabaseDB?

TerrabaseDB (or TDB for short) is an effort to provide the best of key/value stores, document stores and columnar databases, that is, simplicity, flexibility and queryability at scale. TDB is curently in an alpha stage, but can be used as a performant and persistent key-value store.

Getting started 🚀

  1. Download a bundle for your platform from here ⬇️
  2. Unzip the bundle
  3. Make the files executable (run chmod +x tdb tsh on *nix systems)
  4. First run tdb to start the database server and then run tsh to start the interactive shell
  5. Run commands like: SET foo bar , GET bar , UPDATE cat mitten or DEL proprietary 🤪 on tsh !


  • HEYA - It all begins with a heya! Use this to ping the server
  • GET/ MGET - Get a single/multiple key(s)
  • SET/ MSET - Set a single/multiple key(s)
  • UPDATE/ MUPDATE - Update the value of a single/multiple key(s) which has already been created with SET
  • EXISTS - Check if a single/multiple key(s) exist(s)
  • DEL - Delete a single/multiple key(s)

And many more
