Overview

A Microservice primarily used for in-mail implementation to compose and view in-mails for any client application.

Installation

npm i @sourceloop/in-mail-service

Usage

  • Create a new Loopback4 Application (If you don't have one already) lb4 testapp
  • Install the in mail service npm i @sourceloop/in-mail-service
  • Set the environment variables.
  • Run the migrations.
  • Add the InMailServiceComponent to your Loopback4 Application (in application.ts).
    // import the InMailServiceComponent
    // No need to destructure
    import InMailServiceComponent from '@sourceloop/in-mail-service';
    // add Component for InMailServiceComponent
    this.component(InMailServiceComponent);
  • Set up a Loopback4 Datasource with dataSourceName property set to InMailDatasourceName. You can see an example datasource here.
  • Start the application npm start

Setting up a DataSource

Here is a sample Implementation DataSource implementation using environment variables and PostgreSQL as the data source.

import {inject, lifeCycleObserver, LifeCycleObserver} from '@loopback/core';
import {juggler} from '@loopback/repository';
import {InMailDatasourceName} from '@sourceloop/in-mail-service';

const config = {
  name: InMailDatasourceName,
  connector: 'postgresql',
  host: process.env.DB_HOST,
  port: process.env.DB_PORT,
  user: process.env.DB_USER,
  password: process.env.DB_PASSWORD,
  database: process.env.DB_DATABASE,
  schema: process.env.DB_SCHEMA,
};

@lifeCycleObserver('datasource')
export class InmailDataSource
  extends juggler.DataSource
  implements LifeCycleObserver
{
  static dataSourceName = InMailDatasourceName;
  static readonly defaultConfig = config;

  constructor(
    @inject(`datasources.config.${SchedulerDatasourceName}`, {optional: true})
    dsConfig: object = config,
  ) {
    super(dsConfig);
  }
}

Migration

The migrations required for this service are processed during the installation automatically if you set the INMAIL_MIGRATION or SOURCELOOP_MIGRATION env variable. The migrations use db-migrate with db-migrate-pg driver for migrations, so you will have to install these packages to use auto-migration. Please note that if you are using some pre-existing migrations or databases, they may be affected. In such a scenario, it is advised that you copy the migration files in your project root, using the INMAIL_MIGRATION_COPY or SOURCELOOP_MIGRATION_COPY env variables. You can customize or cherry-pick the migrations in the copied files according to your specific requirements and then apply them to the DB.

Additionally, there is now an option to choose between SQL migration or PostgreSQL migration. NOTE : For @sourceloop/cli users, this choice can be specified during the scaffolding process by selecting the "type of datasource" option.

Database Model

PORT Y 3000 Port for the service to listen on.
DB_HOST Y Hostname for the database server.
DB_PORT Y Port for the database server.
DB_USER Y User for the database.
DB_PASSWORD Y Password for the database user.
DB_DATABASE Y Database to connect to on the database server.
