This is a special type within ThingsDB and is returned by all the *_info() functions.

As an example we can take the node_info and view the type. This will tell us that the value is indeed of the mpdata type.

// get the current node info
node_info = node_info();

// return the type as string to verify this is indeed the `info` type

Return value in JSON format


The mpdata type is also returned by default from all modules. This way ThingsDB does not require to load responses into memory if nothing has to be done with the result.


Function Description

load Load the data into ThingsDB.
