0.10.1 • Public • Published



    Provides easy access to sails-elastic-api from Sails.js & Waterline.

    This module is a Waterline/Sails adapter, an early implementation of a rapidly-developing, tool-agnostic data standard. Its goal is to provide a set of declarative interfaces, conventions, and best-practices for integrating with all sorts of data sources. Not just databases-- external APIs, proprietary web services, or even hardware.

    Strict adherence to an adapter specification enables the (re)use of built-in generic test suites, standardized documentation, reasonable expectations around the API for your users, and overall, a more pleasant development experience for everyone.


    To install this adapter, run:

    $ npm install waterline-sails-elastic-api


    This adapter exposes the following methods:

    TODO: Specify the interfaces this adapter will support. e.g. This adapter implements the [semantic]() and [queryable]() interfaces. For more information, check out this repository's FAQ and the adapter interface reference in the Sails docs.


    Check out Connections in the Sails docs, or see the config/connections.js file in a new Sails project for information on setting up adapters.

    Getting started

    It's usually pretty easy to add your own adapters for integrating with proprietary systems or existing open APIs. For most things, it's as easy as require('some-module') and mapping the appropriate methods to match waterline semantics. To get started:

    1. Fork this repository
    2. Set up your and package.json file. Sails.js adapter module names are of the form sails-*, where * is the name of the datastore or service you're integrating with.
    3. Build your adapter.

    Running the tests

    Configure the interfaces you plan to support (and targeted version of Sails/Waterline) in the adapter's package.json file:

      "sails": {
       "adapter": {
            "sailsVersion": "~0.10.0",
            "implements": [

    In your adapter's directory, run:

    $ npm test

    Publish your adapter

    You're welcome to write proprietary adapters and use them any way you wish-- these instructions are for releasing an open-source adapter.

    1. Create a new public repo and add it as a remote (`git remote add origin

    2. Make sure you attribute yourself as the author and set the license in the package.json to "MIT".

    3. Run the tests one last time.

    4. Do a pull request to sails-docs adding your repo to data/adapters.js. Please let us know about any special instructions for usage/testing.

    5. We'll update the documentation with information about your new adapter

    6. Then everyone will adore you with lavish praises. Mike might even send you jelly beans.

    7. Run npm version patch

    8. Run git push && git push --tags

    9. Run npm publish
