Basic model implementation

build status npm version dependencies status devDependencies status Gitter RunKit

Represents domain-specific data or information that an application will be working with. A typical example is a user account (e.g name, avatar, e-mail) or a music track (e.g title, year, album). Holds information, but don’t handle behaviour and don’t format information or influence how data appears.

cjs-model extends Emitter interface.

Installation

npm install cjs-model

Usage

Add the constructor to the scope:

var Model = require('cjs-model');

Create an empty instance:

var model = new Model();

Create an instance with some data:

var model = new Model({
    attr1: value1,
    attr2: value2,
});

Clear all data:

model.clear();

emits clear event in case some data is present

Clear and set new model data:

model.init({
    attr3: value3,
    attr4: value4,
});

can emit clear and init events

Check an attribute existence:

if ( model.has('attr3') ) {
    /* ... */
}

Get a model attribute value by name:

var value = model.get('attr1');

Update or create a model attribute:

var operationStatus = model.set('attr5', 'value5');

emits change event with prev field in data in case of update operation

Delete the given attribute by name:

var operationStatus = model.unset('attr5');

emits change event

Performance notes

It is highly advisable to access a model data directly in case no events are required.

So instead of

var value = model.get('attr1');
model.set('attr5', 'value5');

to avoid performance penalty it's better to use

var value = model.data.attr1;
model.data.attr5 = 'value5';

Development mode

There is a global var DEVELOP which activates additional consistency checks and protection logic not available in release mode.
