    Resolver

    Resolver implementations to traverse into structured information

    Installation

    @konfirm/resolver is a scoped package, which means the scope must be provided for both installation and usage.

    Using npm

    $ npm install --save @konfirm/resolver
    

    Using yarn

    $ yarn add @konfirm/resolver
    

    Exports

    The Resolve module is an object with various exposed classes

    name purpose
    AbstractResolver Abstract implementation of Resolver, providing the base implementation
    VirtualResolver Implementation which matches everything
    RequireResolver Implementation to resolve directories and all files that can be required

    Usage

    A resolver can be used to determine whether a given key can be used reached through traversal. It is up to the implementation to provide meaning to what it is that is resolved.

    A tangible resolver is the RequireResolver, which is allows for traversal of the filesystem and ultimately the inclusion of files through require.

    const Path = require('path');
    const { RequireResolver } = require('@konfirm/resolver');
    const root = new RequireResolve(process.cwd());
     
    //  for this example, a config/application.js file is assumed
     
    //  determine if a directory or (requireable) file exists with the name 'config'
    if (root.match('config')) {
        //  'config' exists, so we can use it
        const config = root.use('config');
     
        //  determine if a directory or (requireable) file exists with the name 'application'
        if (config.match('application')) {
            const application = config.use('application');
     
            //  the application variable now contains the required config/application.js
        }
    }

    As the Resolvers are able to test whether the provided key is usable, it opens up to the possibility to easily implement traversal mechanisms.

    const Path = require('path');
    const { RequireResolver } = require('@konfirm/resolver');
    const root = new RequireResolve(process.cwd());
     
    function resolve(resolver, path) {
        return path.split(Path.sep).reduce((carry, key) => {
            if (carry && carry.match(key)) {
                return carry.use(key);
            }
     
            return null;
        }, resolver);
    }
     
    const root = new RequireResolver(process.cwd());
    const application = resolve(root, 'config/application');

    API

    All exported Resolvers provide the same base; AbstractResolver

    AbstractResolver

    constructor(...path)

    Creates an instance of AbstractResolver. The meaning of path and the validity of the values may differ per implementation.

    get path

    The path of the Resolver. It reflects the path as it was provided during construction, in order to prevent runtime manipulation the return path is a slice of what is stored, which means it cannot be compared using the shallow equality operator (===).

    use(key)

    Create a new Resolver for the given key. A new instance using the current path + the provided key is created. By default the result is a new instance of the Resolver it was used on.

    match(key)

    Can the resolver match the key. Verify whether the provided key can be used to create a new Resolver. The default implementation always results in undefined, meaning use should not be called.

    if (resolver.match('key')) {
        //  able to invoke resolver.use('key')
    }

    [Symbol.match](key)

    Symbol.match implementation. This allows for using the Resolver as argument of a string key using key.match(resolver).

    NOTE This will only work on keys of type string, if you cannot be sure of string values, use resolver.match instead.

    if ('key'.match(resolver)) {
        //  able to invoke resolver.use('key')
    }

    *[Symbol.iterator]()

    Symbol.iterator generator implementation. Allows the Resolver to be used in a for...of loop. The default implementation does not yield any value.

    for (const value of resolver) {
        // do something with value
    }
     
    //  or, using destructuring
    const values = [...resolver];

    NOTE it is important to look at the implementation specifics on what values are yielded (if any).

    VirtualResolver

    Unless otherwise stated, the VirtualResolver API does not override the AbstractResolver implementation.

    match(key)

    All keys given to a VirtualResolver will be returned as is, therefor allowing everything thrown at it.

    console.log(resolver.match('key')); // key

    [Symbol.match](key)

    As the default [Symbol.match] implementation uses the match method under the hood, all string keys will be matched in full.

    console.log('key'.match(resolver)); // key

    RequireResolver

    Unless otherwise stated, the RequireResolver API does not override the AbstractResolver implementation.

    use(key)

    If the key refers to a directory and no file with precedence (according to require) exists, calling use will create a new RequireResolver pointing to that directory. If a file takes precedence the return value of use will return the required file.

    match(key)

    Try to match the provided key to the path associated with the RequireResolver, if a file takes precedence (according to require), the name of that file is returned. If there's no matched, undefined is returned.

    [Symbol.match](key)

    As the default [Symbol.match] implementation uses the match method under the hood, all string keys will provide the full file name that can be used.

    *[Symbol.iterator]()

    As any RequireResolver instance basically reflects a directory, the iterator implementation can (and will) list all directory entry names as string value
