# CRUD Commands

CRUD (Create, Remove, Update, Delete) operations are basic statements in KevScript. Namely they allow to create and move components,channels, groups and childs nodes instances.

Add Adds a new instance of Component, Node, Channel or Group. You can add several elements of the same type, at the same time, by separating the instances' names with a ,. When the element you add is a component instance, you MUST specify the node that will host this instance, using a dotted notation (i.e.: node0.instance0 : MyComponentType).

add node0, node1 : JavaNode


Remove Removes elements from the model.

remove node0
remove sync
remove chan0


Move Moves one or several instances to another node. Instances can be of type NodeType or ComponentType. The last parameter of the command is always the destination node.

move node0.comp0 node1
move *.* node0 //moves all components of all nodes, to node0
move node0.comp0, node0.comp1 node1


Set Used to set parameters of instances. Some parameters are fragment dependent. In this case, a property can have a different value on each node howting a fragment (it can be the case for Groups and Channels). In this case, the property is set using a <element>.<property>/<node> = "<value>" notation.

set node0.comp0.foo = "bar"
set node0.*.baz = 'potato' //sets the property baz of all components on node0
set sync.forcePush = "false"
set sync.port/node0 = '8000'
