@payk/nestjs-response-utils

Response (& Request) utils for NestJS

Build Status

Installation

npm install @payk/nestjs-response-utils

What does it do?

Quick Start

Add a decorator on top of your method or controller

@UseInterceptors(new LoggingInterceptor(), new TransformResponseInterceptor(ResponseKYCDto))

The LogginInterceptor can also be added globally according to NestJS documentation.

The TransformResponseInterceptor accepts in his ctor the object it's supposed to transform and also a mapping function if the properties are named differently.

It's important to always put the logging interceptor first, as he needs to be the first to run and last to catch errors.

Why & How

Our operation mode is that Dto goes into the controller and then into the service. And the service works with Models (DB Models mainly). The service then returns to the controller the Model and the controller transforms it into a Response DTO. To remove the boilerplate, the service should use a MetaResponse object and the controller the TransformResponseInterceptor that will do the transformation of the MetaResponse into the ResponseDTO.

The Service gets a RequestDTO and returns a MetaRespone<Model> created by the MetaResponseGenerator to the controller.

MetaResponse

Do create a MetaResponse we have a MetaResponseGenerator class.

// Return an object (Model) and the require ResponseCode (HttpResponse normally)
MetaResponseGenerator.generateByResponseCode(
    dbModel,
    ResponseCodes.OK,
  );

// Return an Error, no object needed.
MetaResponseGenerator.generateAnErrorResponse(
    ResponseCodes.NOT_FOUND,
  );

// Return an HttpStatus error
MetaResponseGenerator.generateErrorByStatus(
  HttpStatus.OK,
  { error: 'object' }
)

ResponseCode

The ResponseCode object assists in returning errors mainly. A few come by default in the ResponseCodes class. More can be initiated using the ResponseCode ctor

LoggingInterceptor

The logging interceptor will log the request and response to the service.

Masking Data

In order to mask data that shouldn't be logged, the LoggingInterceptor supports getting an array in his constructor of property names that should be masked.

new LoggingInterceptors(['propertyName','properyThatShouldBeMasked'])

Assuming the following Json:

{
  name: 'Dan',
  test: 'ing',
  propertyName: 'I'll be masked',
  inner: {
    here: 'there',
    properyThatShouldBeMasked: 123,
    propertyName: 1111999
  }
}

Will result in the following:

{
  name: 'Dan',
  test: 'ing',
  propertyName: '--REDACTED--',
  inner: {
    here: 'there',
    properyThatShouldBeMasked: '--REDACTED--',
    propertyName: '--REDACTED--'
}
