    ReQL command: js

    Command syntax

    r.js(jsString) → value

    Description

    Create a JavaScript expression.

    You may use the timeout optArg to specify a number of seconds before r.js times out. The default value is 5 seconds.

    Whenever possible, you should use native ReQL commands rather than r.js for better performance.

    Example: Concatenate two strings using JavaScript.

    r.js("'str1' + 'str2'").run(conn);
    

    Example: Select all documents where the ‘magazines’ field is greater than 5 by running JavaScript on the server.

    r.table("marvel").filter(
        r.js('(function (row) { return row.magazines.length > 5; })')
    ).run(conn);
    

    Example: You may also specify a timeout in seconds (defaults to 5).

    r.js("while (true) {}").optArg("timeout", 1.3).run(conn);
