Storage Layer

Nitro provides a built-in storage layer that can abstract filesystem or database or any other data source.

See unjs/unstorage for more usage information.

Example: Simple (in memory) operations

await useStorage().setItem('test:foo', { hello: 'world' })await useStorage().getItem('test:foo')

Defining Mountpoints

By default storage is in-memory with mounted cache: prefix only for development.

await useStorage().setItem('cache:foo', { hello: 'world' })await useStorage().getItem('cache:foo')

You can mount other storage drivers through the Nitro config using the storage option:

// nitro.config.tsimport { defineNitroConfig } from 'nitropack'export default defineNitroConfig({  storage: {    'redis': {      driver: 'redis',      /* redis connector options */    },    'db': {      driver: 'fs',      base: './data/db'    }  }})


await useStorage().setItem('redis:foo', { hello: 'world' })await useStorage().getItem('redis:foo')

You can find the list of drivers on the unstorage repository.


You can use the devStorage key to overwrite the storage configuration during development.

export default defineNitroConfig({  // Production  storage: {    'db': {      driver: 'redis',      /* redis connector options */    }  }  // Development  devStorage: {    'db': {      driver: 'fs',      base: './data/db'    }  }})
