Implementation detailsΒΆ

Since InfluxDB exposes all its functionality through an HTTP API, InfluxDBClient tries to be nothing more than a thin and simple wrapper around that API.

The InfluxDB HTTP API exposes exactly three endpoints/functions: ping, write and query.

InfluxDBClient merely wraps these three functions and provides some parsing functionality for generating line protocol data (when writing) and parsing JSON responses (when querying).

Additionally, partials are used in order to provide convenient access to commonly used query patterns. See the Query patterns section for details.
