ReQL command: to_a

Command syntax



Retrieve all results as an array.

RethinkDB sequences can be iterated through via the Ruby Enumerable interface; to coerce a cursor into an array, use the Ruby to_a() command.

Example: For small result sets it may be more convenient to process them at once as an array.

cursor = r.table('users').run()
users = cursor.to_a()

The equivalent query with an each block would be:

cursor = r.table('users').run()
cursor.each { |doc|

Note: Because a feed is a cursor that never terminates, using to_a with a feed will never return. Use each instead. See the changes command for more information on feeds.
