GitHub last commit GitHub issues GitHub package.json version (branch) GitHub contributors GitHub forks GitHub watchers GitHub Repo stars GitHub Sponsors GitHub

Create a rules engine for your app in minutes, that would take days to create from scratch.

Add complex rules to your web app quickly via simple commands to RuleForge's classes.

Features

  • A ready-built structure for organising your rules
  • An efficient engine for processing rules at scale
  • A simple structure that can be picked up easily
  • Create simple rulesets quickly via chaining with the RuleForge class
  • Fire actions from passed rules immediately, or en masse when you want to

Installation

RuleForge can be installed via Node Package Manager (NPM).

npm install @ruleforge/ruleforge

Documentation

Documentation can be found on the RuleForge GitHub Pages site here

Getting Started

A getting started guide will be added here soon, but in the meantime check out the example.ts and example2.ts files for two ways to get started.

There are a few different building blocks that make up RuleForge's rule engine. These are the five you will use, and what they are for:

  • Fact: An object you pass with your own properties to check your rules against.
  • Condition: An individual check you make on the Fact.
  • Rules: Contain the Conditions that must all be met for the Rule to pass.
  • Actions: The function you want to run when the Rule passes.
  • Ruleset: A container for your Rules.
  • RuleForge: A class that allows your rulesets to be created via chaining (see example2.ts)

In short:

  1. Create a ruleset.
  2. Create a rule in the ruleset.
  3. Create an action in the rule.
  4. Add conditions to the rule.
  5. Repeat 2-4 until you have all the rules you need.
  6. Create a fact, with the data you'll be checking your rules against.
  7. Run the fact through the ruleset.
