Nymph Client

Powerful object data storage and querying.

The Nymph Client allows you to query and push data to a Nymph REST server from the browser. You can also subscribe to entities and queries on a Nymph PubSub server and be notified of changes.

Installation

npm install --save @nymphjs/client

This package is the Nymph client for browsers. You can find UMD in dist, or TS source in src. There is also a Node.js client.

Usage

Here's an overview:

import { Nymph, PubSub } from '@nymphjs/client';
import TodoClass from 'Todo';

const nymphOptions = {
  restUrl: 'https://yournymphrestserver/path/to/your/endpoint',
  pubsubUrl: 'wss://yournymphpubsubserver',
};
const nymph = new Nymph(nymphOptions);
const pubsub = new PubSub(nymphOptions, nymph);
const Todo = nymph.addEntityClass(TodoClass);

// Now you can use Nymph and PubSub.
const myTodo = new Todo();
myTodo.name = 'This is a new todo!';
myTodo.done = false;
await myTodo.$save();

let allMyTodos = await nymph.getEntities({ class: Todo });

let subscription = pubsub.subscribeWith(myTodo, () => {
  // When this is called, the entity will already contain new data from the
  // publish event. If the entity is deleted, the GUID will be set to null.
  if (myTodo.guid != null) {
    alert('Somebody touched my todo!');
  } else {
    alert('Somebody deleted my todo!');
    subscription.unsubscribe();
  }
});

// ...

// Subscribing to a query.
let todos = [];
let userCount = 0;
let subscription = pubsub.subscribeEntities(
  {
    class: Todo.class,
  },
  {
    type: '&',
    '!tag': 'archived',
  },
)(
  (update) => {
    // The first time this is called, `update` will be an array of Todo
    // entities. After that, `update` will be a publish event object.

    // This takes an existing array of entities and either updates it to match
    // another array, or performs actions from a publish event object to update
    // it.
    pubsub.updateArray(todos, update);

    // `todos` is now up to date with the latest publishes from the server.
  },
  (err) => alert(err),
  (count) => {
    // If you provide this callback, the server will send updates of how many
    // clients are subscribed to this query.
    userCount = count;
  },
);

// ...

// Remember to clean up your subscriptions when you no longer need them.
subscription.unsubscribe();
