    JsonApi Adapter for js-data

    This adapter implements the JsonApi Protocol and ties it to a js-data data store.

    It ties

    • JsonApi types to js-data resource
    • JsonApi relations to js-data toOne, toMany Relationships

    See the Project Wiki site for more information and examples (under construction)

    Goals

    Goal Status Tests
    Serialize JsonApi requests code complete yes
    When deserializing JsonApi data add 'ParentIds' so that js-data belongsTo relationships can work code complete yes
    When deserializing JsonApi data add 'LocalKey/LocalKeys' or 'ForeignKeys' depending on js-data configurations so that js-data hasOne and hasMany relationships can work code complete yes
    Add metadata to indicate if an object is a jsonApi reference, indicating that it is partially populated only code complete yes
    Transparently request full objects when requested from js-data cache and object is a jsonApi reference only, e.g. Not fully populated code complete yes
    Store hyperlinking data within metadata of stored data code complete yes
    Use metadata hyperlinks to request related data from JsonApi data store complete yes
    Use metadata hyperlinks to add new items to relationships Not started No

    Known Issues

    1. Test coverage is pretty good.Testing is by no means complete, there are many more scenarios that need to be covered off
      • (Done).
    2. None of the xxxxAll adapter methods have been tested yet. e.g findAll, destroyAll, updateAll
      • findAll (done)
    3. Bower package has not been tested
    4. The code creates the DSHttpDataAdapter internally.
      • Allow the adapter to be injected or a constructor function passed via constructor options. (Done)
    5. Code is some what brittle in terms of requiring your js-data configuration to match very closely your jsonApi
      • Could look at adding additional configuration to allow flexible mapping between js-data and jsonapi
      • Further documentation required illustrating the relationships between JsonApi data structure and js-data configuration (Partially Done)
    6. I haven't actually tested this against a 3rd part JsonApi implementation yet like ember.
      • More testing to be done...... (In Progress)

    Quick Start

    npm install --save js-data js-data-http js-data-jsonapi or bower install --save js-data js-data-http js-data-jsonapi.

    Load js-data-jsonapi.js after js-data-http.js and after js-data.js.

    var adapter = new DSJsonApiAdapter.JsonApiAdapter();
     
    var store = new JSData.DS();
    store.registerAdapter('jsonApi', adapter, { default: true });
     
    // "store" will now use the jsonApi adapter for all async operations

    Or alternatively to use an existing HttpAdapter for example when using js-data-angular

    .run(function(DS, DSHttpAdapter) {
        
        var options = {adapter:DSHttpAdapter};
        var adapter = new DSJsonApiAdapter.JsonApiAdapter(options);
        DS.registerAdapter('jsonApi', adapter, { default: true });
        ....
    }
