Plugin / Gigaom Simple DB




Establish a connection to Amazon Simple DB. Uses the awesome php-sdb2 SDB library.


  1. Load simple db class
    • $go_simple_db = go_simple_db(
    • The SDB Domain value is analagous to an SQL Table. If the SDB Domain doesn’t exist yet Gigaom Simple DB will create it for you.
    • See: Amazon Simple DB Getting Started Guide for more information on getting your Key and Secret values.
    • Also see: SDB Limits to get an idea of what Amazon Simple DB allows as it’s not going to be the same as other databases you’ve worked with before.
  2. Write a row to the your SDB Domain: $go_simple_db->putAttributes( YOUR_SDB_DOMAIN, array( 'post_id' => array( 'value' => '1234' ) ) )
  3. Query your SDB Domain: $go_simple_db->select( 'SELECT * FROM `' . YOUR_SDB_DOMAIN . '` LIMIT 100, NULL );
    • In the case where you are getting the next chunk of results from you SDB Domain the NULL value in the code above would be replaced with a SDB Next Token (which essentially triggers an offset in the query) see the Developer Guide for more info on that.
    • Queries are quite different in SDB and you’ll need to familiarize yourself with those differences.
    • Did I mention the SDB Developer Guide?
