MarkMapper is a community-driven Ruby Object Mapper for MarkLogic. It has all the bells and whistles you expect from ActiveRecords (validation, finders, callbacks, etc). MarkMapper helps you set up databases and application servers. Once you define your object model, MarkMapper will serialize to/from JSON for you.

MarkMapper requires MarkLogic 8 or greater. It persists all documents as JSON. Check out the Documentation for more.

Getting Started

Install the MarkMapper gem:

$ gem install mark_mapper

Define your models:

class User
  include MarkMapper::Document

  key :name, String
  key :age,  Integer

  many :hobbies

class Hobby
  include MarkMapper::EmbeddedDocument

  key :name,    String
  key :started, Time

Use your models to create and find documents:

user = => 'Brandon') => 'Programming',
  :started => 10.years.ago)!

User.where(:name => 'Brandon').first
