sdmp-node-journal

sdmp-node-journal

An implementation of the SDMP journal in JavaScript.

This module does not verify resources or authors in any way. It simply blindly maintains a journal list.

install it

Install it the normal npm way:

npm install sdmp-node-journal

Or by copying the code into your project some other more difficult way.

initialize it

Initialize it with a string containing the full journal (according to the SDMP specs, this must contain at least the first journal line):

var NodeJournal = require('sdmp-node-journal')
var existingJournal = 'GlvAreTo0lCS...'
var journal = NodeJournal(existingJournal)

journal entry object

All functions and streams digest and produce an object containing some or all of the following properties:

write to it: .write(journalEntry, callback)

Write to the journal by calling .write on the instantiated journal. The two properties are:

  • journalEntry - A journal entry object containing author and resource. (If an identifier or line property is included, this is considered an error.)
  • callback - A traditional error-first callback function. If there are no errors, the second parameter is a complete journal entry object for that line.

The error object returned has the following possible properties:

  • invalidJournalEntry - The properties author and resource are not string.
  • containsIdentifierOrLine - The property line or identifier are not falsey.

For example (data truncated with ... for readability):

journal.write({
    author: 'GlvAreTo...',
    resource: 'OTA8fSUK...'
}, function(error, entry) {
    console.log(entry.identifier) // 22tfYa3X... 
})

read from it: .read(journalEntry, callback)

Read from the journal by calling .read on the instantiated journal. The two properties are:

  • journalEntry - A journal entry object containing at least one of author, resource, identifier, or line.
  • callback - A traditional error-first callback function. The returned data is an array of any lines that match all parameters on the journalEntry passed in. Journal lines are considered to match when the line contains all of the parameters given in the journalEntry object.

The error object returned has the following possible properties:

  • invalidJournalEntry - At least one of author, resource, identifier, or line must be set. All properties must be falsey or of the type string.

For example (data truncated with ... for readability):

journal.read({
    line: '22tfYa3X...'
}, function(error, entry) {
    console.log(entry.line) // 22tfYa3X...@GlvAreTo.../OTA8fSUK... 
    console.log(entry.identifier) // 22tfYa3X... 
    console.log(entry.author) // GlvAreTo... 
    console.log(entry.resource) // OTA8fSUK... 
})

write emitter: .on('write', callback)

On any call to .write, the write event is emitted. The callback is given the journal entry object that was written to the journal.

read all: .readAll()

Returns the entire journal as an ordered array of journal entry objects.
