Install

Install from NPM:

npm install vue-pouch-db --save

Usage

Import the Library and Install it into the Vue Instance

// Import the Library 
import VuePouch from 'vue-pouch-db';
 
// VuePouchDB Instance 
Vue.use(VuePouchDB);

Vue Pouch DB Bucket

The bucket is a global config object (schema), that you can set configurations globally or per database.

Currently the following keys are plugin specific, these keys have specific functionality in the Bucket Config Object:

  • config
  • plugins
  • actions

// Bucket - Vue Pouch DB Config Object 
// This is a general and fast overview 
// How to define bucket initially in the instance 
const bucket = new VuePouchDB.Bucket({
  // Main config Object. This is the top level 
  // config object. Where global config 
  // are shared with each database. 
  config: {
    // Remote Server 
    remote: "COUCHDB SERVER",
 
    // Is DB Remote Only?, default: false 
    remoteOnly: false,
 
    // db.allDocs({options}) 
    allDocs: {

    // new Pouch({options}) 
    options: {

  plugins: [
    require('pouchdb-plugin')
  ],
 
  // Actions are shared across the

  // Think of them as helper methods to bundle 
  // several sets of commands into a single method. 
  // Can be accessed through this.$bucket.[method name] 
  actions: {

      // this is $bucket instance 
      this.db('projects').({
        _id: 'document_id'
        data: {}

  _users: {
    // Is remote only ? 
    // The _users database lives only

      }
    }
 
  }
});
 
// Vue Application Startup 
const app = new Vue({
  // Include the Bucket Instance 
  // into the root Vue application 
  bucket,
  methods: {
    // Simple example how to delete a 
    // document in CouchDB through VuePouchDB 
    // Keep in mind, that the state is synced 
    // and when the request is sent to couchdb 
    // the state will update the object and 
    // add the property _deleted: true 
    remove({ _id, _rev }) {
      this.$bucket.db('projects').put({
        _id, _rev,
        _deleted: true
      });
    }
  }
});

For more information regarding the configuration objects, please check PouchDB API

API

this.$bucket

Example
Vue.component({
  created: {
    // Access the internal VuePouchDB state 
    // the internal state is reactive, and any mingling 
    // with the state may break the plugin. As it wont 
    // be able to track changes. 
    this.$bucket.state;
 
    // Programmatic way to instantiate a database 
    // This is the same as setting up dbsetup object 
    // into the vue component. 
    this.$bucket.db(dbname, options);
 
    // Close a database, and remove all its watchers 
    // and events related to it. 
    // Internally it will close the DB, delete the internal 
    // state (not the indexDB database locally) 
    // remove all the change watchers. 
    this.$bucket.closedb(dbname);
  }
});

this.dbsetup

Vue({ dbsetup: {} }) is a shorthand method to instantiate a database within a component, or to have it referenced internally, without the need to call a method or predefine it in the Bucket config object.

Example
Vue.component({
  dbsetup: {
    // the database name 
    // both keys can take a function 
    // that is bound to the component 
    // instance 
    name: "dbname",
    // the config object 
    // When a database is created the "options" 
    // key is taken from the context and applied 
    // to the database. 
    // Note: does not work for already instantiated 
    // databases. 
    options: {}
  }
});

mapQueries({})

mapQueries is a functionality built on top of VuePouchDB, which takes the database state and filters it.

It mainly works with Mango queries, and uses sift library to do the querying of the documents.

Example
 
// Import mapQueries method 
import { mapQueries } from 'vue-pouch-db';
 
// Inside a Vue component 
Vue.component({
  template: `<div>{{ this.docs }}, {{ this.files }}</div>`,
  data: function {
    return {
        dbname: 'projects'
    };
  },
  dbsetup: {
    name: function () {
      // 'this' is bound to the component 
      // internal state 
      return {
        this.dbname;
      };
    },
    options: function () {
      return {};
    }
  },
  computed: {
    ...mapQueries({
      docs: {
        type: 'anode'
      },
      files: function () {
        return {
          file: {
            $in: ['file']
          }
        };
      }
    })
  },
  methods: {
    addDocs: function (_id, data) {
      // You can modify the state 
      // internally by assigning data 
      // to the internal computed properties 
      // and it will update the database automatically 
      // Can be an object or an Array of items you 
      // would like to update. 
      this.docs = {
        _id: _id,
        type: 'anode',
        data: data
      };
    }
  }
});
