Description

With this package you can manipulate and interpret mantaray data via MantarayNode and MantarayFork abstractions.

Exported Functions and Classes

You can import the followings directly from mantaray-js:

  • MantarayNode # class abstracting and manipulating Mantaray Node data
  • MantarayFork # class abstracting and manipulating Mantaray Fork data
  • checkForSeparator # checks for separator character in the node and its descendants prefixes
  • initManifestNode # initialize a manifest node
  • loadAllNodes # loads all mantaray nodes recursively from the storage
  • equalNodes # checks whether the two given Mantaray Nodes objects are equal in the in-memory abstraction level
  • Utils # all used utility functions in the library. Mostly operating on Uint8Array objects.
  • types* # not callable, referring all types exported and reachable from the index

Basic usage

Construct Mantaray

import { initManifestNode, Utils } from 'mantaray-js'

const node = initManifestNode()
const address1 = Utils.gen32Bytes() // instead of `gen32Bytes` some 32 bytes identifier that later could be retrieved from the storage
const address2 = Utils.gen32Bytes()
const address3 = Utils.gen32Bytes()
const address4 = Utils.gen32Bytes()
const address5 = Utils.gen32Bytes()
const path1 = new TextEncoder().encode('path1/valami/elso')
const path2 = new TextEncoder().encode('path1/valami/masodik')
const path3 = new TextEncoder().encode('path1/valami/masodik.ext')
const path4 = new TextEncoder().encode('path1/valami')
const path5 = new TextEncoder().encode('path2')
node.addFork(path1, address1)
node.addFork(path2, address2, { vmi: 'elso' }) // here 'vmi' is a key of metadata and 'elso' is its value
node.addFork(path3, address3)
node.addFork(path4, address4, { vmi: 'negy' })
node.addFork(path5, address5)
node.removePath(path3)
// (...)

Mantaray Storage Operations

import { MantarayNode } from 'mantaray-js'

const node = new MantarayNode()
// here `reference` parameter is a `Reference` type which can be a 32 or 64 bytes Uint8Array
// and `loadFunction` is a [loadFunction: async (address: Reference): Promise<Uint8Array>] typed function
// that returns the serialised raw data of a MantarayNode of the given reference
await node.load(loadFunction, reference)

// Manipulate `node` object then save it again
// (...)

// save into the storage with a storage handler [saveFuncion: async (data: Uint8Array): Promise<Reference>]
const reference = await node.save(saveFunction)

Testing

The testing needs running Bee client node for integration testing. You can set BEE_POSTAGE environment variable with a valid Postage batch or the test will create one for you.

The default value of the Bee Debug API endpoint is http://localhost:1635. If your address diverges from that, please, set BEE_DEBUG_API_URL system environment variable with yours.

To run test execute

npm run test
