eccies-sequelize

a Sequelize.js strategy for eccies.js

ectypes-sequelize

A ectypes strategy for Sequelize.js - http://www.sequelizejs.com/.

Ectypes can be found at http://github.com/nicholasf/ectypes.js

npm install ectypes-sequelize

Calls to build() and create() on a Sequelize model are supported.

First, create the Sequelize connection and configure it on the ectypes-sequelize strategy. Then load the strategy into ectypes.

var ectypes = require('ectypes');
var sequelize = new Sequelize('ectypes_test', 'nicholas', null);
var ectypesSequelize = require('ectypes-sequelize').setup(sequelize);
 
ectypes.load(ectypesSequelize);

Once you have defined a ectype for your model:

//the Sequelize model definition
var Project = sequelize.define('Project', {
  title: Sequelize.STRING,
  description: Sequelize.TEXT
});
 
//the ectype for the Project model
var projectType = {
Project: {
title: function(){ return Faker.Name.findName() }
}
};
 
ectypes.add(projectType);

You may then call build() or create() upon it through ectypes to produce the object.

ectypes.Project.create().success(function(project){
console.log(project.id, project.title);  //this logs something like 6 'Autumn Medhurst' (using Faker)
});
 

Use hooks to model associations.

ectypes.plan(
{
Project: {
title: function(){ return Faker.Name.findName() },
description: function(){ return Faker.Lorem.findSentences() },
_hooks: [ 'add a task to a project', function(project, functionName){
if (functionName === 'create'){
Task.create().success(function(task){
project.task = task;
project.save();
});
}
}]
}
});
 
project = ectypes.Project.build();
