Hoodie.js Global Share Plugin

Hoodie Global Share Plugin

Make selected objects publically accessible via hoodie.global store methods.

hoodie install global-share

The Global Share Plugin extends all promises returned by hoodie.store methods with two additional functions: publish and unpublish.

// publish all my todos 
hoodie.store.findAll('task').publish()
 
// unpublish specific note 
hoodie.store.find('note', 'abc1234').unpublish()

All objects marked as public are accessible (read-only) via the hoodie.global API

// list all public tasks 
hoodie.global.findAll('task').then(showAllPublicTasks)
 
// update list of tasks on change 
hoodie.global.on('task:change', handleTaskChange)

add / remove own objects from the public global store

// publish / unpublish can be called on all promises 
// return by any hoodie.store method. 
promise = hoodie.store.add(type, attributes).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.find(type, id).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.findOrAdd(type, id, attributes).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.findAll(/* type */).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.update(type, id, changedAttributes).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.updateAll(/* type, */ changedAttributes).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.remove(type, id).publish()
promise = hoodie.store.removeAll(/* type */).publish()
 
// it works the same on scoped stores 
promise = hoodie.store(type).find(id).unpublish()
promise = hoodie.store(type, id).update(changedAttributes).publish()
 
// publish / unpublish return own promises that only resolve 
// if the objects were published successfully on the server 
promise.then(handlePublishSuccess, handleStoreOrPublishError);

access objects from / listen to changes in the public global store

// hoodie.global has all read-only methods from hoodie.store, 
// with the same footprint 
promise = hoodie.global.find(type, id)
promise = hoodie.global.findAll(/* type */)
 
// you can listen on changes as well 
hoodie.global.on('add', handleNewObject)
hoodie.global.on('task:change', handleChangedTask)
hoodie.global.on('task:123:remove', handleTask123Removed)

The plugin's worker creates a new database hoodie-plugin-global-share that all objects from all user databases that are marked as public are replicated to.

Calling .publish() on a store method in the frontend adds a $public: true flag to the respecitve objects, that is used by the filtered replications from user databases → hoodie-plugin-global-share database.

Calling .unpublish() uses the hoodie.task API internally to start globalshareunpublish task with object types/IDs to be unpublished. The task gets picked up by the worker which then removes all objects with the passed types/IDs from the hoodie-plugin-global-share database.
