    A way to append only objects (deltas) to objects

    Why

    I wanted to learn about javascript Proxies. As you can see, the tests are a bit funny as i started this side project after having my second children. And i didn't find similar libraries, so i made it public.

    | Added some modifications to be aligned with Peer DID method specification.

    Features

    • The target object is not mutated
    • The initial values can be set without id to be undeletables
    • An id is added to all the objects appended if no id is included
    • Can delete any object by his id
    • Can append atomatically a timestamp setting opts.when to true
    • Can't append deep equal object to an array,
    • Can't append an object with an id already deleted

    Installation

    Available through the npm registry. It can be installed using the npm or yarn command line tools.

    npm install append-only-object --save

    Usage

    import AppendOnlyObject from 'append-only-object'
     
    const me = new AppendOnlyObject({ name: 'javi' })
     
    me.append({ surname: [{ id: 'surname', value: 'Santos' }] })
    me.append({ wife: 'Sam' })
    me.append({ childrens: [{ value: 'Adam' }] })
    const addSecondChildren = me.append({ childrens: [{ id: 'second', value: 'Matt' }] }, { patch: true, when: true, by: '1a75a182-9f48-4a18-bd1e-fea4b7f19e67' })
    me.append({ errors: { id: 'error', value: 'An error' } })
    me.delete('error')
     
    me.name = 'noop'
    delete me.name
    me.wife = null
    me.childrens[0].value = 'noop'
    me.childrens.push({value: 'noop' })
     
    console.log(me)
    console.log(me.deleted)
    console.log(addSecondChildren)

    output:

    {
      name: 'Javi',
      surname: [ { id: 'surname', value: 'Santos' } ],
      wife: 'Sam',
      childrens: [
        { value: 'Adam', id: 'uoNymdl6Q3W6vO-xL-Kwkw-2' },
        { value: 'Matt', id: 'second' }
      ]
    }
    Set { 'error' }
    {
      change: { childrens: [ [Object] ] },
      by: '1a75a182-9f48-4a18-bd1e-fea4b7f19e67',
      when: '2020-06-25T12:40:52.430Z',
      patch: [ { op: 'add', path: '/childrens/1', value: [Object] } ]
    }

    See tests and example.js for more info.

    API

    new AppendOnlyObject(target, [options])

    This class creates an append only object, where you can only append and "delete".

    target is the initial object.

    options to control the object returned by the append method, include:

    {
      strict: true, // set to false if you want to be able to `modify` (without overwrite or delete) an object or array (ex. push to an array or add a prop to an existent object).
      unique: true, // set to false if you want to allow objects with the same id.
      encode: false, // to encode the `change` value. Other options json|base64url|base64|hex|binary
      by: false, // Can send an `string`, `object` or `array`.
      when: false, // add an (ISO 8601) `when` value.
      patch: false, // set to true if you want a (RFC6902) `patch` object tu be returned.
      previous: false, // set to true to receive the `previous` object before the append.
    }

    | All the options can be set globally in the creation of the object or with more priority (except strict and unique) in the append or delete methods.

    append(delta, [options])

    This method appends the delta to an already created AppendOnlyObject.

    delete(id, [options])

    The id can be a string or an array of strings.

    Removes all matching object with this id. Adds the id to the AppendOnlyObject.deleted (the property is hidden, and is an iterable Set().
