Summary0005036: create an implementation for IndexedDB to be used outside of the browser
DescriptionExisting node implementations are terrible. We should have at least a simple in-memory implementation for test cases, implementing the subset of IndexedDB that our query abstraction uses.

Later we can implement it for sqlite3.

The IndexedDB API is pretty reasonable, this shouldn't be too much work (famous last words ...).
TagsNo tags attached.

Is this for testing, for apps or for both?

For both. As of today, we can run tests that use WebWorkers (and thus test the crypto thread) in NodeJs. This uses a small module to translate WebWorkers to NodeJS subprocesses. I also want to be able to run tests that use the database outside the browser, for performance reasons.

Note that the database will still be very small, so this implementation doesn't need to be optimized initially.

Another nice use case might be end-to-end tests without using the browser, where we do a withdraw and spend using a command line version of the TypeScript wallet. This allows us to cheaply run test cases, right now the selenium test cases basically kill because they hog so much memory (due to Chrome/Selenium).

Ok, then let's schedule this for 0.6 (obviously could be done earlier, but 0.6 is where we want to have really good testing).

IndexedDB with file-backed and memory-backed storage is now implemented in the idb-bridge package inside the wallet repo.
