Getting the most out of AWS SimpleDB

A serverless, typed and super lightweight object store that enables storage, indexing and querying of JSON documents in AWS SimpleDB using SQL queries. Isotopes is just perfect for small to medium-sized datasets, especially for indexing metadata from other AWS services for flexible querying. It can easily be run from within AWS Lambda and reduces the boilerplate that is necessary to interface with SimpleDB to an absolute minimum.

Quick start

npm install isotopes aws-sdk

In your project:

import { Isotope } from "isotopes"

const isotope = new Isotope<T>({
  domain: "<domain>",
  key: "<keyof T>"
