Creating an instance

Creating a clerk instance is straight-forward.

import Clerk from 'state-clerk'
 
const clerk = new Clerk(state /* the state object */)

Methods

The following mock data will be used in the examples:

import Clerk from 'state-clerk'
 
const state = {
  todos: {
    a: {
      _id: 'a',
      label: 'Buy milk',
      completed: false
    },
    b: {
      _id: 'b',
      label: 'Use state-clerk',
      completed: true
    },
    c: {
      _id: 'c',
      label: 'Do stuff',
      completed: true
    }
  },
  lists: [
    {
      _id: 'x',
      name: 'Shopping',
      todos: ['a']
    },
    {
      _id: 'y',
      name: 'Dev',
      todos: ['b']
    },
    {
      _id: 'z',
      name: 'Random',
      todos: ['c']
    }
  ],
  foo: 'bar'
}
 
const clerk = new Clerk(state)

Throughout the examples we'll be referring to:

  • collection object: a collection of type Object ({})
  • collection array: a collection of type Array ([])
  • payload: resource or data to be created/updated/patched
  • identifier: a string|number or an object ({ id: 1 }) used to identify a specific resource.
    • string|number would represent a key inside a collection object
    • object is a key/value pair used for matching a resource inside a collection array

The Clerk instance has the following API:

get

clerk.get(collection [, identifier])

  • It throws if the specified collection doesn't exist or it's not a collection.
  • It returns the entire collection if identifier is null or undefined.

For collection objects:

  • It returns the resource found at the specified key (identifier).
  • It returns an object of resources that have a matching key/value pair with the one of the identifier object (e.g.: { completed: true }).
  • It returns undefined if no resource found with the provided identifier.

For collection arrays:

  • It returns a list of resources that have a matching key/value pair with the one of the identifier object (e.g.: { completed: true }).
  • It returns an empty list if identifier is not an object.
  • It returns an empty list if no resource found with the provided identifier.

post

clerk.post(collection, payload [, identifier])

  • It throws if the specified collection doesn't exist or it's not a collection.

For collection objects:

  • It throws if trying to post to a collection object without specifying an identifier.
