    Paris is a data management library for webapps, using TypeScript and RxJS to implement Domain-Driven Design.

    Paris, fashion capital of the world, where all the models want to be.


    Package size: ~15.8kb (gzipped)

    1. Paris is a TypeScript library and also requires RxJs and lodash, so you'll need both those packages, if you don't already use them:

      npm install --save lodash-es rxjs typescript
    2. Install the Paris NPM package:

      npm install --save @microsoft/paris


    • Data API abstraction and standardization - define and use your data easily, in a consistent way.
    • Strong-typed - data models are defined as classes with TypeScript
    • Full-tree modeling - Paris handles the creation of models and sub-models, essentially creating a model tree.
    • Implements Domain-Driven Design - true and tested development methodology that improves collaboration.
    • Reactive - all async code is done with RxJS Observables.
    • Caching - easily cache data (including time-based caching).


    First, define an Entity:

    // todo-item.entity.ts
    import { Entity, EntityModelBase, EntityField } from "@microsoft/paris";
    	singularName: "Todo Item",
    	pluralName: "Todo Items",
    	endpoint: "todo/items"
    export class TodoItem extends EntityModelBase{
    	text: string;
    	time: Date;

    The above defines an Entity, which can be used to query the todo/items server endpoint, like this:

    import { Paris } from "@microsoft/paris";
    const paris = new Paris();
    paris.getItemById(TodoItem, 1).subscribe((todoItem:TodoItem) => {
    	console.log("Todo item with ID 1: ", todoItem);
