2016-10-15, 5.0.0-alpha.1

5.0.0 is a port/rewrite of node-influx to TypeScript, aiming to provide a stronger foundation while fixing many of the pain points and bugs which currently exist. These include issues with escaping data passed to node-influx, date handling difficulties, quirks in the connection, and the lack of complete unit tests. We also take the opportunity to build a more modern, promise-based API. Concretely, here's what we've got for you:

  • A modern promise based API;
  • Order-of-magnitude performance increases (varying per situation);
  • A more consistent API with predictable and consistent escaping;
  • The ability to correctly and accurately deal with times;
  • The ability to correctly and accurately deal with all data types;
  • Fix some methods plain not working;
  • Isomorphism, allowing the adapter to work in both Node and the browser;
  • Less weird connection pool failures;
  • Much better and more complete documentation;

Please see the documentation linked in the readme for more information. The following is a list of breaking changes:

  • breaking: all methods have been modified to return promises
  • breaking: result output for grouped results has changed
  • breaking: data passed into Influx, except where otherwise noted, will be escaped automatically
  • breaking: the point structure for .write* methods has changed
  • breaking: the .writePoint method has been removed
  • breaking: .writeSeries as been more appropriately renamed writeMeasurement
  • breaking: write methods now write in nanosecond precision by default
  • breaking: .getSeriesNames has been renamed .getSeries
  • breaking: the old .getSeries method has been removed in favor of the behaviour exhibited by getSeriesNames
  • breaking: the InfluxDB client must now be invoked as new InfluxDB
  • breaking: the connection pool configuration has changed
