Notes

  • .contains() can work on array columns or range columns. It is very useful for finding rows where a tag array contains all the values in the filter array.

    .contains('arraycol',["a","b"]) // You can use a javascript array for an array column
    .contains('arraycol','{"a","b"}') // You can use a string with Postgres array {} for array column.
    .contains('rangecol','(1,2]') // Use Postgres range syntax for range column.
    .contains('rangecol',`(${arr}]`) // You can insert an array into a string.
