Introduction

Node-viewmodel is a node.js module for multiple databases. It can be very useful if you work with (d)ddd, cqrs, eventdenormalizer, host, etc.

Installation

$ npm install viewmodel

Usage

var viewmodel = require('viewmodel');

viewmodel.read(function(err, repository) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }
});

Make shure you have installed the required driver, in this example run: 'npm install mongodb'.

var viewmodel = require('viewmodel');

viewmodel.write(
    {
        type: 'mongodb',
        host: 'localhost',      // optional
        port: 27017,            // optional
        dbName: 'viewmodel',    // optional
        timeout: 10000          // optional
    },
    function(err, repository) {
        if(err) {
            console.log('ohhh :-(');
            return;
        }
    }
);
var repository = viewmodel.write({ type: 'mongodb' });
repository.on('connect', function() {
    console.log('hello from event');
});
repository.on('disconnect', function() {
    console.log('bye');
});
repository.connect();
var dummyRepo = repository.extend({
    collectionName: 'dummy'
});
dummyRepo.get(function(err, vm) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    vm.set('myProp', 'myValue');
    vm.set('myProp.deep', 'myValueDeep');

    console.log(vm.toJSON());

    console.log(vm.has('myProp.deep'));

    dummyRepo.commit(vm, function(err) {
    });
    // or you can call commit directly on vm...
    vm.commit(function(err) {
    });
});
// the query object ist like in mongoDb...
dummyRepo.find({ color: 'green' }, function(err, vms) {
// or
//dummyRepo.find({ 'deep.prop': 'dark' }, function(err, vms) {
// or
//dummyRepo.find({ age: { $gte: 10, $lte: 20 } }, function(err, vms) {
// or
//dummyRepo.find({ $or: [{age: 18}, {special: true}] }, function(err, vms) {
// or
//dummyRepo.find({ age: { $in: [1, 2, 3, 6] } }, function(err, vms) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    // vms is an array of all what is in the repository
    var firstItem = vms[0];
    console.log('the id: ' + firstItem.id);
    console.log('the saved value: ' + firstItem.get('color'));
});
// the query object ist like in mongoDb...
dummyRepo.find({ color: 'green' }, { limit: 2, skip: 1, sort: { age: 1 } }, function(err, vms) {
// or
//dummyRepo.find({ color: 'green' }, { limit: 2, skip: 1, sort: [['age', 'desc']] }, function(err, vms) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    // vms is an array of all what is in the repository
    var firstItem = vms[0];
    console.log('the id: ' + firstItem.id);
    console.log('the saved value: ' + firstItem.get('color'));
});
// the query object ist like in mongoDb...
dummyRepo.findOne({ color: 'green' }, function(err, vm) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    console.log('the id: ' + vm.id);
    if (vm.has('color')) {
        console.log('the saved value: ' + vm.get('color'));
    }
});
// the query object ist like in mongoDb...
dummyRepo.get('myId', function(err, vm) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    console.log('the id: ' + vm.id);
    console.log('the saved value: ' + vm.get('color'));
});
dummyRepo.get('myId', function(err, vm) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    vm.destroy();

    dummyRepo.commit(vm, function(err) {
    });
    // or you can call commit directly on vm...
    vm.commit(function(err) {
    });
});
myQueue.getNewId(function(err, newId) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    console.log('the new id is: ' + newId);
});
dummyRepo.clear(function(err) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }
});

Implementation differences

For mongodb you can define indexes for performance boosts in find function.

var dummyRepo = repository.extend({
    collectionName: 'dummy',
    indexes: [
        'profileId',
        // or:
        { profileId: 1 },
        // or:
        { index: {profileId: 1}, options: {} }
    ]
});

The find function does ignore the query argument and always fetches all items in the collection.

Release notes

Database Support

Currently these databases are supported:

  1. inmemory
  2. mongodb ([node-mongodb-native] (https://github.com/mongodb/node-mongodb-native))
  3. couchdb ([cradle] (https://github.com/cloudhead/cradle))
  4. tingodb ([tingodb] (https://github.com/sergeyksv/tingodb))
  5. redis ([redis] (https://github.com/mranney/node_redis))
  6. azuretable (azure-storage)
  7. documentdb (documentdb, doqmentdb)
  8. elasticsearch ([elasticsearch] (https://github.com/elastic/elasticsearch-js))

You can use your own db implementation by extending this...

var Repository = require('viewmodel').Repository,
util = require('util'),
    _ = require('lodash');

function MyDB(options) {
  Repository.call(this, options);
}

util.inherits(MyDB, Repository);

_.extend(MyDB.prototype, {

  ...

});

module.exports = MyDB;
