Postpie

This is a pluggable backend for Pieshop that allows you to write persistence code that looks and feels a bit like Django's ORM.

Examples

Object level save/erase var author = new Author({ 'username':'jerrylewis', 'first_name':'jerry', 'last_name':'lewis' }); author.save(function(obj) { // author now has an id sys.puts(obj.id); });

Author.objects.get({'pk':1}, function(author) {
    author.username = 'something-new';
    author.save();
});

Author.objects.get({'pk':2}, function(author) {
    author.delete();
});

Delete Queries

Entry.objects.filter({'id__gt':10, 'author__username__startswith':'gary'}).erase(function(objects, err) {
    sys.debug(sys.inspect(objects));
});

Update Queries

Entry.objects.filter({'author__username__startswith':'gary'}).update({
    'body':'gary wrote a post'
}, function(objects, err) {
    sys.debug(sys.inspect(objects));
});

Complex Filtering, and Insert queries

Author.objects.filter({'username__startswith':'gary'}).all(function(objects, err) {
    var gary = objects[0];
    models.Entry.objects.create({
        title:"i'm creating objects",
        tease:"from the command line",
        slug:"creating-objects",
        body:"Hey guys, I just created this model from the command line.",
        author:gary
    }, function() {
        models.Entry.objects.filter({'slug':'creating-objects'}).all(function(objects, err) {
            sys.debug(sys.inspect(err));
        });
    });
});

Reverse Relations

Author.objects.filter({'username':'chrisdickinson'}).all(function(objects, err) {
    var author = objects[0];
    author.entry_set.all(function(objects, err) {
        sys.debug(sys.inspect(objects));
    }); 
});

And our friends, the models:

var models = require('pieshop').core,
    fields = require('pieshop').fields,
    reverse = require('wilson').urls.reverse,           // this is using a root escaperoutes pattern
    strftime = require('jsdtl').datetime.strftime;      // this is just a nicety

exports.Author = models.resource({
    'username':fields.CharField({'max_length':255}),
    'first_name':fields.CharField({'max_length':255}),
    'last_name':fields.CharField({'max_length':255}),
    'get_absolute_url':function() {
        return reverse('author-entries', [
            this.username
        ]);
    },
    'get_full_name':function() {
        return [this.first_name, this.last_name].join(' ');
    },
    'toString':function() {
        return '<Author: "'+this.username+'">';
    },
    Meta:{
        'table':'authors',
        'ordering':'username',
    }
});

exports.Entry = models.resource({
    'title':fields.CharField({'max_length':255}),
    'tease':fields.CharField({'max_length':1000}),
    'slug':fields.CharField({'max_length':50}),
    'body':fields.TextField(),
    'created':fields.DateTimeField({'auto_now_add':true}),
    'author':fields.ForeignKey(exports.Author, {'related_name':'entry_set'}), 
    'get_absolute_url':function() {
        return reverse('blog-detail-view', [
            this.created.getFullYear(),
            strftime(this.created, "b"),
            this.created.getDate(),
            this.slug
        ]); 
    },
    'toString':function() {
        return '<Entry: "'+this.title+'">';
    },
    Meta:{
        'table':'entries',
        'ordering':'-created',
    }
});
