kappa-view-list

General purpose sorted list view for kappa-core.

This view models a sorted list materialized view, on top of a set of append-only logs. It allows for reading subsets of entries from that sorted list, and tailing the end of it.

Usage

Let's build a view that orders messages by their ISO timestamp:

var memdb = require('memdb')
var kappa = require('kappa-core')
var ram = require('random-access-memory')
var list = require('kappa-view-list')
 
var core = kappa(ram, { valueEncoding: 'json' })
var idx = memdb()
 
var listIdx = list(idx, function (msg, next) {
  if (!msg.value.timestamp) return next()
  next(null, [msg.value.timestamp])
})
core.use('timestamp', listIdx)
 
core.writer('local', function (err, feed) {
  var docs = [
    { timestamp: '2018-11-04T17:45:55.524Z', id: 'foo' },
    { timestamp: '2017-11-04T12:15:00.524Z', id: 'foo', n: 3 },
    { timestamp: '2018-12-04T07:00:00.524Z', id: 'foo', n: 12 }
  ]
  feed.append(docs, function (err, seq) {
    core.api.timestamp.read({ limit: 2 }, function (err, values) {
      console.log('values', values)
    })
  })
 
  core.api.timestamp.onInsert(function (msg) {
    console.log('update', msg.seq)
  })
})
 

outputs

update 0
update 1
update 2
values [ { key: 'c068a25f1579c6094b41849df3e11bf0db0a36c0c9567605f5f60a4af3ad121a',
    seq: 1,
    value: { timestamp: '2017-11-04T12:15:00.524Z', id: 'foo', n: 3 } },
  { key: 'c068a25f1579c6094b41849df3e11bf0db0a36c0c9567605f5f60a4af3ad121a',
    seq: 0,
    value: { timestamp: '2018-11-04T17:45:55.524Z', id: 'foo' } } ]

The list is in ascending order by default.

API

var list = require('kappa-view-list')

var view = list(lvl, mapFn)

Creates a new kappa view, view, using the LevelUP/LevelDOWN storage lvl and a mapping function mapFn.

Here's how mapFn works:

// here, msg.value.timestamp is the field to sort on
function mapMsgToSortFields (msg, next) {
  next(null, [msg.value.timestamp])
}

The callback next is called as next(error?, [field]).

From here, you can use core.use(name, view) to install it into a kappa-core. What follows are the APIs that get exposed if you did core.use('list', view):

[var rs = ]core.list.read([opts,] [cb])

Returns a subset of the list. If no callback cb is given, a Readable stream rs is returned. Otherwise, results are given as a list via the callback cb(err, [msgs]).

Each result has the form

{
  key: 'hexadecimal_feed_key',
  seq: Number,
  value: { user: 'data' }
}

opts can be Level-like parameters for controlling the results. Some examples are:

  • limit (Number): maximum number of results to return
  • gt: the value of the lowest field to return
  • lt: the value of the highest field to return

Fetching all entries with timestamps between 2017 and 2018 could look like this:

var stream = core.api.timestamp.read({gte: '2017-00-00T00:00:000Z', lt: '2018-00-00T00:00:000Z'})

core.list.tail(size, fn)

Listen for updates to the upper end of the list, a window of size size. fn is called with a list of messages, sorted from low to high.

core.list.onInsert(fn)

Subscribe to updates to every list insertion. The function fn is called as fn(key, value).
