Assuming the 'key' is intended to be a unique identifier into the
pairs table, something like this:

var database;
indexeddb.open('demobase').onsuccess = function(e) {
  database = e.result;
  var server = new WebSocket('ws://whatwg.org/database');
  server.onmessage = websocketHandler;
function websocketHandler(event) {
  // data is in the format "command key value"
  var data = event.data.split(' ');
  switch (data[0]) {
    case '+':
     database.transaction(["pairs"], IDBTransaction.READ_WRITE)
       .objectStore("pairs").put(data[2], data[1]);
    case '-':
     database.transaction(["pairs"], IDBTransaction.READ_WRITE)

A couple of things to note: Opening a database is an asynchronous
operation since it makes metadata about the database available. All
tables must have a unique key for each row. In this example I assumed
that the 'key' part was that unique identifier.
