-- PostgreSQL 9.2 beta (for the new JSON datatype)
-- You can actually use an earlier version and a TEXT type too
-- PL/V8 http://code.google.com/p/plv8js/wiki/PLV8
 
-- Inspired by
-- http://people.planetpostgresql.org/andrew/index.php?/archives/249-Using-PLV8-to-index-JSON.html
-- http://ssql-pgaustin.herokuapp.com/#1
 
-- JSON Types need to be mapped into corresponding PG types
--
-- Number => INT or DOUBLE PRECISION
-- String => TEXT
-- Date => TIMESTAMP
-- Boolean => BOOLEAN
-- Array => ARRAY of appropriate PG Type
-- Object =>
-- null => NULL
 
-- USING the following functions:
--
-- Each function takes a JSON column and a field to access as string
-- Nested fields can be access as well eg "person.name"
--
-- json_string
--
-- json_int
--
-- json_float
--
-- json_bool
-- literal js true will convert to PG true, other values are falsey
--
-- json_datetime
-- currently will convert any numeric value into a timestamp
--
-- json_int_array (with others to come)
-- will wrap an integer into an array as required
--
-- json_push(column, field, json_value)
-- Appends value to an array
-- or if field is not present sets field to the array json_value
-- UPDATE things SET data = json_add_to_set(data, 'array', '10');
-- Will error if field is not an array.
--
-- json_add_to_set(column, field, json_value)
-- Appends value to an array only if its not in the array already
-- or if field is not present sets field to the array json_value
-- UPDATE things SET data = json_add_to_set(data, 'object.array', '10');
-- Will error if field is not an array.
