GAE JS FIRESTORE

Use Firestore in Native mode as your app db including DataLoader implementation GraphQL and request level caching.

Installation

npm install @mondomob/gae-js-firestore

Components

FirestoreProvider

Initialise Firestore to be accessed elsewhere in your app.

// On app startup
firestoreProvider.init();

// Anywhere else in your app
const firestore = firestoreProvider.get();
const doc = await firestore.doc('my-items/id123').get();

FirestoreLoader

Dataloader implementation to help batch and cache db requests. Used internally by FirestoreRepository

// Apply middleware to create a new dataloader on each request
app.use(firestoreLoader());

FirestoreRepository

Access your collections through typed repositories.

// Define your class entity
interface DemoItem {
  id: string;
  name: string;
}

// Initialise repository for the collection we want to access data in
const repository = new FirestoreRepository<DemoItem>("demo-items");

// OR define a custom class first
class DemoItemRepository extends FirestoreRepository<DemoItem> {
  constructor() {
    super("demo-items");
  }
}
const repository = new DemoItemsRepository();

// Save an item
await repository.save({ id: "id123", name: "test item" });

// Get an item
const item = await repository.get("id123");

// Delete item with single id
await repository.delete("id123");

// Delete items with array of ids
await repository.delete(["id123", "id234"]);

// Supply options to delete (documents MUST exist)
await repository.delete(["id123", "id234"], { exists: true });

// Delete all items in collecitons and recursively delete decendants. Uses https://cloud.google.com/nodejs/docs/reference/firestore/latest/firestore/firestore#_google_cloud_firestore_Firestore_recursiveDelete_member_1_
await repository.delete("id123", "id234");
// Delete all will FAIL when inside a transaction because it does not work within transactions. The underlying node lib streams batches of queries and deletions. Transactions requrie all reads before writes and have volume limitations.

// Query items
const list = await repository.query();

// Query items with ordering
const results = repository.query({
 sort: {
   property: "owner",
   direction: "desc",
 }
})

// Query items for specific fields (i.e. projection)
const results = await repository.query({
  filters: [
    {
      fieldPath: "owner",
      opStr: "==",
      value: "user1",
    },
  ],
  select: ["name", "otherProp"],
});

// Query items using Firebase Filter, allows for OR queries
const results = await repository.query({
  filters: Filter.or(
    Filter.where("id", "==", "123"), 
    Filter.where("id", "==", "567"))
  }
)

// Query items for ids only (empty projection)
const results = await repository.query({
  filters: [
    {
      fieldPath: "owner",
      opStr: "==",
      value: "user1",
    },
  ],
  select: [],
});

// Result: [{ id: "your-id" }, ...]


// Query items with limit/offset
const results = await repository.query({
  filters: [
    {
      fieldPath: "owner",
      opStr: "==",
      value: "user1",
    },
  ],
  limit: 2,
  offset: 2,
});

// Query items with cursors
const results = await repository.query({
  sort: { property: "owner" },
  startAfter: ["user2"],
});

// Count items in a collection using aggregation query https://firebase.google.com/docs/firestore/query-data/aggregation-queries
const count = await repository.count();

// Count items matching filter (only "filters" property may be supplied)
const countWithFilter = await repository.count({
 filters: [
     {
       fieldPath: "owner",
       opStr: "==",
       value: "user1",
     },
   ],
});

// Query only the ids using a projection query
const results = await repository.queryForIds({
  sort: { property: "owner" },
  startAfter: ["user2"],
  // All query options supported, except for the "select" prop
});
// Results would just be an array of the id strings


TimestampedRepository

Convenience Repository type to auto-populate createdAt/updatedAt timestamps on insert/save/update

// Define your class entity
interface DemoItem extends TimestampedEntity {
  name: string;
}

// Initialise repository
const repository = new TimestampedRepository<DemoItem>("demo-items");

// Create a new item with helper method
await repository.save({ ...newTimestampedEntity("id123"), name: "test item" });

// Save an item and updatedAt will get set to current time
const item = await repository.get("id123");
await repository.save({ ...item, name: "updated item" });

Note: you can disable updating updatedAt for existing entities if required by doing the following (e.g. for data migrations). For newly created entities, the createdAt and updatedAt fields will always be set to the current date, regardless of this setting (unless these fields have a valid Date already set on them).

import { DISABLE_TIMESTAMP_UPDATE } from "./timestamped-repository";
import { runWithRequestStorage, setRequestStorageValue } from "@mondomob/gae-js-core";

await runWithRequestStorage(async () => {
  setRequestStorageValue(DISABLE_TIMESTAMP_UPDATE, true);
  return repository.save(item);
});

@Transactional

Annotate functions to make them transactional.

NOTE: Requires "experimentalDecorators": true set in your tsconfig.json

class UserService {
  constructor(
    public userRepo: FirestoreRepository<User>,
  ) {}

  @Transactional()
  async addCredits(userId: string, credits: number): Promise<User> {
    const user = this.userRepo.get(userId);
    user.credits = user.credits + credits;
    return this.userRepo.save(user);
  }
}
