bookshelf-spotparse

A Bookshelf.js plugin that makes formatting, parsing and finding models easier.

See also: bookshelf-update, a plugin that makes updating models more intuitive.

Installation

  • Install with npm using npm i bookshelf-spotparse
  • After creating a bookshelf instance, call the plugin method:
const bookshelf = require('bookshelf')(knex);
bookshelf.plugin('bookshelf-spotparse');
  • SpotParse can now be used on all models.

Usage

SpotParse allows you to create an arrangement for the variables inside your models. You can now specify for each variable how they should be inserted and read to and from the database:

// Model definition
let User = bookshelf.model('users', {
  tableName: 'users',
  // Sample relation
  organisation: function() {
    return this.belongsTo('organisations');
  }
}, {
  arrangement: {
    password: {
      format: (password) => encrypt(password),
      parse: (password) => decrypt(password)
    }
  }
});

The above code will encrypt a password (if present) when storing the model to the database and decrypt the password (if present) when getting a user out of the database. This makes it so the database always has the encrypted password and user.get('password') will always return the decrypted password.

To use an unformatted field to retrieve a model from the database the spot() function can be used:

User.spot({username: 'PietHein', password: 'decryptedpassword'})
.fetch().then(user => console.log(user.get('status') + user.get('password')));
// Prints: decryptedpassword

In this case the password will be formatted (encrypted) before being passed to the database query.

Overriding

WARNING: SpotParse makes the format and parse functions static to be used with spot().
Overriding the format and parse functions inside your model will result in spot({key: value}) no longer parsing the value properly.
You can however override the format and parse functions in the static (constructor) part of your module, for instance:

// Model definition
let User = bookshelf.model('users', {
  tableName: 'users',
  // Sample relation
  organisation: function() {
    return this.belongsTo('organisations');
  },
  // WARNING: Overriding attributes here will result in spot()
  // not being able to parse a password for instance.
  // format: function(attributes) {
  //   if (attributes.password && attributes.method) attributes.method = 'login';
  //   return attributes;
  // }
}, {
  arrangement: {
    password: {
      format: (password) => encrypt(password),
      parse: (password) => decrypt(password)
    }
  },
  // Format can be overridden like this, inside the static part.
  format: function(attributes) {
    if (attributes.password && attributes.method) attributes.method = 'login';
    // Because of formatArrangement (also see parseArrangement)
    // the password will still be formatted (encrypted) if present.
    return this.formatArrangement(attributes);
  }
});

Leaving out this.formatArrangement() will nullify the workings of the arrangement property, the spot() method will still use the overridden code.
