Create Rule using Query Builder

Step 1 - Create rule

Navigate to https://querybuilder.js.org/demo.html for a demo or implement a rule builder using query builder.

Step 2 - Get the rule output

After creating your rule, click the 'Get Rules' button and you will get below JSON as the output. You can use your own custom implementation to get the output from query builder.

The output form Query Builder will be like below,

{
    "condition": "AND",
    "rules": [{
            "id": "price",
            "field": "price",
            "type": "double",
            "input": "number",
            "operator": "less",
            "value": 10.25
        },
        {
            "condition": "OR",
            "rules": [{
                    "id": "category",
                    "field": "category",
                    "type": "integer",
                    "input": "select",
                    "operator": "equal",
                    "value": 2
                },
                {
                    "id": "category",
                    "field": "category",
                    "type": "integer",
                    "input": "select",
                    "operator": "equal",
                    "value": 1
                },
                {
                    "condition": "AND",
                    "rules": [{
                        "id": "in_stock",
                        "field": "in_stock",
                        "type": "integer",
                        "input": "radio",
                        "operator": "equal",
                        "value": 1
                    }]
                }
            ]
        }
    ],
    "valid": true
};

Step 3 - Build the input for rules engine

So, we have the query builder input and now we are going to convert it to a rule defenition which is the input for durable rules engine.

    const RuleConverter = require('query-builder-to-string');
 
    // output from jQuery Query Builder
    var ruleInput = {
        "condition": "AND",
        "rules": [{
                "id": "price",
                "field": "price",
                "type": "double",
                "input": "number",
                "operator": "less",
                "value": 10.25
            },
            {
                "condition": "OR",
                "rules": [{
                        "id": "category",
                        "field": "category",
                        "type": "integer",
                        "input": "select",
                        "operator": "equal",
                        "value": 2
                    },
                    {
                        "id": "category",
                        "field": "category",
                        "type": "integer",
                        "input": "select",
                        "operator": "equal",
                        "value": 1
                    },
                    {
                        "condition": "AND",
                        "rules": [{
                            "id": "in_stock",
                            "field": "in_stock",
                            "type": "integer",
                            "input": "radio",
                            "operator": "equal",
                            "value": 1
                        }]
                    }
                ]
            }
        ],
        "valid": true
    };
 
    var output = RuleConverter(ruleInput);

And the output will be string,

   // "price < 10.25 && (category == 2 || category == 1 || (in_stock == 1))"

You can use the above definition in node rules engine like below format,

    var RuleEngine = require("node-rules");
 
/* Creating Rule Engine instance */
var R = new RuleEngine();
 
/* Add a rule */
var rule = {
    "condition": (R) => {
        console.log(this);
        R.when(eval([<PUT-THE-ABOVE-OUTPUT-HERE>]));
    },
    "consequence": (R) => {
        this.result = false;
        this.reason = "Put some reason message as needed.";
        R.stop();
    }
};
 
/* Register Rule */
R.register(rule);
