    Easy CRUD actions for your ngxs state

    Build Status NPM License

    This package is an entity adapter and simplifies CRUD behaviour with just a few lines of setup per state class!


    npm i @ngxs-labs/entity-state

    You do not have import any module, just extend your state class, make a super call and you are good to go! The first super parameter is always the state class itself. The second parameter is the key to identify your entities with. The third is an implementation of an IdGenerator (see below).

    Example state

    export interface ToDo {
      title: string;
      description: string;
      done: boolean;
      name: 'todo',
      defaults: defaultEntityState()
    export class TodoState extends EntityState<ToDo> {
      constructor() {
        super(TodoState, 'title', IdStrategy.EntityIdGenerator);

    Example in the integration app!


    There are ready to use Actions for entity-states. Just pass in the targeted state class as the first parameter and then your action's payload. SetLoading(TodoState, this.loading)); UpdateActive(TodoState, { done: true }));

    Example in the integration app

    Action Short description
    Add Adds a new entity and cannot replace existing entities
    CreateOrReplace Gets the entity's ID and will replace entities with same id or else add a new one
    Update Updates one or more entities by partial value or function
    UpdateAll Update all entities by partial value or function
    Remove Removes entities from the state
    RemoveAll Removes all entities from the state
    ---------- ----------
    SetActive Takes an ID and sets it as active
    ClearActive Clears the active ID
    UpdateActive Updates the currently active entity
    RemoveActive Removes the active entity and clears the ID
    ---------- ----------
    SetError Sets the error (Error instance or undefined)
    SetLoading Sets the loading state (true or false)
    Reset Resets the state to default
    ---------- ----------
    GoToPage Goes to specified page, via index, stepwise or first/last
    SetPageSize Sets the page size

    Actions that change the entities will update the internal timestamp lastUpdated. You can use one of the existing selectors to see the age of your data.


    Use predefined Selectors just like you would normally!

    @Select(TodoState.entities) toDos$: Observable<ToDo[]>;
    @Select( active$: Observable<ToDo>;

    Example in the integration app

    Selector Short description
    entities All entities in an array
    keys All entity keys in an array
    entitiesMap All entities in a map
    size Entity count
    active the active entity
    activeId the active ID
    paginatedEntities Entities in an array defined by pagination values
    nthEntity the nthEntity by insertion order
    latestId the ID of the latest entity
    latest the latest entity
    loading the loading state
    error the current error
    lastUpdated the lastUpdated timestamp as Date
    age difference between and lastUpdated in ms


    There are 3 different strategies in the IdStrategy namespace available:

    • IncrementingIdGenerator -> uses auto-incremeting IDs based on present entities
    • UUIDGenerator -> generates UUIDs for new entities
    • EntityIdGenerator -> takes the id from the provided entity

    The latter will cause errors if you try to add an entity with the same ID. The former two will always generate a new ID.

    You can also implement your own strategy by extending IdGenerator and then provide it in the super call.


    The EntitySelector type is used in Actions such as Update or Remove.

    export type EntitySelector<T> = string | string[] | ((entity: T) => boolean);
    • string -> one ID; selects one entity
    • string[] -> array of IDs; selects matching entities
    • (entity: T) => boolean -> predicate; selects entities that return true when applied to this function
