sql-view NPM version Dependency Status CircleCI Coverage Status

Install

$ npm install --save sql-view

Usage

var sqlView = require('sql-view')('postgres');
 
// build(view, criteria)
var view = sqlView.build('SELECT * FROM products'), {
  where: {
    price: {
      lt: '1000'
    }
  });
console.log(view);
// => { statement: 'SELECT * FROM (SELECT * FROM "products") t WHERE "price"<$1',
//      params: [ '1000' ]
//    }
 
view = sqlView.build('products'), {
  where: {
    price: {
      lt: '1000'
    }
  });
console.log(view);
// => { statement: 'SELECT * FROM "products" WHERE "price"<$1',
//      params: [ '1000' ]
//    }
 

Criteria

The criteria objects are formed using one of four types of object keys. These are the top level keys used in a query object. It is loosely based on the criteria used in Waterline.

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, skip: 20, limit: 10, order: 'name DESC' });

Use the key as the column name and the value for a exact match

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'briggs' }})

They can be used together to filter for multiple columns

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'briggs', state: 'california' }})

Keys can also hold any of the supported criteria modifiers to perform queries where a strict equality check wouldn't work.

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: {
  name : {
    contains : 'alt'
  }
}})

With an array each element is treated as or as in queries

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: {
  name : ['briggs', 'mike']
}});

Not in queries work similar to in queries

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: {
  name: { not : ['briggs', 'mike'] }
}});

Performing or queries is done by using an array of objects

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: {
  or : [
    { name: 'briggs' },
    { occupation: 'unknown' }
  ]
}})

The following modifiers are available to use when building queries

  • 'lt'
  • 'lte'
  • 'gt'
  • 'gte'
  • 'not'
  • 'like'
  • 'contains'
  • 'startsWith'
  • 'endsWith'
sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { age: { lte: 30 }}})

Pagination

Allow you refine the results that are returned from a query. The current options available are:

  • limit
  • skip
  • order
  • select

Limits the number of results returned from a query

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, limit: 20 })

Returns all the results excluding the number of items to skip

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, skip: 10 });

skip and limit can be used together to build up a pagination system.

sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, limit: 10, skip: 10 });

Results can be sorted by attribute name. Simply specify an attribute name for natural (ascending) order, or specify an asc or desc flag for ascending or descending order respectively.

// Sort by name in ascending order (default)
sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, order: 'name' });
// or
sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, order: 'name asc' });
 
// Sort by name in descending order and also in email
sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { name: 'foo' }, order: ['name desc', 'email'] });
 

Apply a projection

// Returns only the field name
sqlView.build('select * from table', { where: { age: { lt: 30 } }, select: ['name'] })

Grouping

// Returns only the field name
sqlView.build('select * from table', { groupBy: 'state', sum: 'population' })

The group functions available are: sum, avg, max and min
