[docs]class TinyDB(TableBase): """ The main class of TinyDB. The ``TinyDB`` class is responsible for creating the storage class instance that will store this database's documents, managing the database tables as well as providing access to the default table. For table management, a simple ``dict`` is used that stores the table class instances accessible using their table name. Default table access is provided by forwarding all unknown method calls and property access operations to the default table by implementing ``__getattr__``. When creating a new instance, all arguments and keyword arguments (except for ``storage``) will be passed to the storage class that is provided. If no storage class is specified, :class:`~tinydb.storages.JSONStorage` will be used. .. admonition:: Customization For customization, the following class variables can be set: - ``table_class`` defines the class that is used to create tables, - ``default_table_name`` defines the name of the default table, and - ``default_storage_class`` will define the class that will be used to create storage instances if no other storage is passed. .. versionadded:: 4.0 .. admonition:: Data Storage Model Data is stored using a storage class that provides persistence for a ``dict`` instance. This ``dict`` contains all tables and their data. The data is modelled like this:: { 'table1': { 0: {document...}, 1: {document...}, }, 'table2': { ... } } Each entry in this ``dict`` uses the table name as its key and a ``dict`` of documents as its value. The document ``dict`` contains document IDs as keys and the documents themselves as values. :param storage: The class of the storage to use. Will be initialized with ``args`` and ``kwargs``.
