    Api

    ApiManager

    The ApiManager handles the Express Application and all of the registered controllers.

    BaseController

    The BaseController provides base functionality for an Api Controller, and should be extended when creating a controller. Controller routes can be registered using the BaseController's RegisterRoutes method.

    Events

    NewApiRequestEvent

    The NewApiRequestEvent is published to the EventAggregator when a Api request is received by a controller.

    Event

    EventAggregator

    The EventAggregator aggregates published events to subscribed handlers. The EventAggregator singleton can be accessed via the UseEventAggregator function.

    Usage

    The EventAggregator works best when used with Dependecy Injection. Below is an example of getting the EventAggregator singleton, then registering the singleton with a typedi container.

    const eventAggregator = UseEventAggregator();
    Container.set(EventAggregator, eventAggregator);

    When registered in a typedi container, the EventAggregator can be resolved anywhere with access to the container, or via constructor injection (example below).

    @Service()
    export default class ArticleService {
        constructor (eventAggregator: EventAggregator) {
            eventAggregator.GetEvent(NewApiRequestEvent).Subscribe((args: NewApiRequestEvent) => {console.log(args.Request)});
        }
    }

    Creating a Microservice

    Setup

    First thing to do is setup the Depenecy Injection for the service, typedi works well with microframe-ts but any Dependecy Injection package should work (setup for typedi can be found here. Start by registering any packages outside your project with the typedi container, example below shows the microframe-ts ApiManager being registered with the container.

    Container.set(ApiManager, apiManager);

    Any classes you wish to be automatically registered with the container as a singleton should have the Service decorator.

    @Service()
    export default class ExampleService {
    }

    Web Api

    A Web Api allows for communication via HTTP requests. microframe-ts uses controllers to handle the Api requests recieved. Start by creating a controller, a controller should be a class that extends the BaseController class; controllers should also be marked with the Service typedi decorator or manually registered with the DI container. To initialise routes, the controller needs a method named InitRoutes which will be called by the BaseController when it is ready to initialise; this is where routes can be registered (see example below).

    @Service()
    export default class ExampleController extends BaseController {
        public constructor() {
            super('/example');
        }
    
        public InitRoutes(): void {
            // Routes go here.
            console.log(`Init routes - ${this.path}`);
            this.RegisterRoutes([
                { method: HttpMethod.GET, path: `${this.path}/helloworld`, handler: async (_, response: Express.Response) => await this.helloWorld(response) },
            ]);
            console.log(`Routes registered - ${this.routes}`);
        }
    
        private async helloWorld(response: Express.Response): Promise<void> {
            response.send('Hello World');
        }
    }

    Next step is to create an instance of ApiManager, the ApiManager expects a port number and a list of controllers, this list of controllers can be resolved from the container as seen below.

     const apiManager = new ApiManager(5000,[Container.get(ArticleController)]);
     Container.set(ApiManager, apiManager);

    Finally call the Listen method on the ApiManager.

     const apiManager = new ApiManager(5000,[Container.get(ArticleController)]);
     Container.set(ApiManager, apiManager);
     apiManager.Listen();

    Logger

    microframe-ts uses the package tslog for logging, more information on tslog can be found here. In order to use the Logger throughout the microservice, register the Logger with the DI container using UseLogger to get the Logger singleton; as shown below.

    const logger = UseLogger();
    Container.set(Logger, logger);

    The Logger can then be injected in services as so.

    @Service()
    class ExampleService {
        private readonly logger: Logger;
        
        constructor(logger: Logger) {
            this.logger = logger;
            this.logger.info('Hello World');
        }
    }
