Did you know?

Writing multi-line AQL queries in JavaScript made easy.

Instead of a string concatenation like this:

var query = "FOR doc IN collection " + "FILTER doc.value == @what " + "RETURN doc";

… you can either use the more elegant ES6 template string that is supported since ArangoDB 2.5:

var query =`FOR doc IN collection FILTER doc.value == @what RETURN doc`;

… or you use the query builder (aqb):

var qb = require("aqb");

var jobs = db.\_createStatement({ 
query: ( 
 .sort('job.delayUntil', 'ASC') 
bindVars: { 
 queue: queue._key, 
 now: Date.now(), 
 max: queue.maxWorkers - numBusy 

Some more details on advantages and compatibility you can find in our new recipe Multi-Line AQL Queries.
