bullet-train-rules-engine

This project is the JavaScript rules engine that powers user segments for bullet-train.io.

Features

It allows for a recursive ruleset, with ANY ALL and NONE predicates. It supports the following types of operators:

  • 'CONTAINS'
  • 'EQUAL'
  • 'GREATER_THAN'
  • 'GREATER_THAN_INCLUSIVE'
  • 'LESS_THAN'
  • 'NOT_CONTAINS'
  • 'NOT_EQUAL'
  • 'REGEX'

Installation

npm i bullet-train-rules-engine --save

Usage

import rulesEngine from 'bullet-train-rules-engine'

// The object to test
const test = {
    favouriteColour: 'blue',
    hasConfirmedEmail: true,
    name: 'kyle',
    deepObject: {
        hiddenProperty: true
    }
};

// The ruleset
const rules = [
    {
        property: 'favouriteColour',
        operator: 'EQUAL',
        value: 'blue'
    },
    {
        any: {
            rules: [
                {
                    property: 'money',
                    operator: 'GREATER_THAN_INCLUSIVE',
                    value: 11
                },
                {
                    property: 'hasConfirmedEmail',
                    operator: 'EQUAL',
                    value: true
                },
                {
                    property: 'deepObject.hiddenProperty',
                    operator: 'EQUAL',
                    value: true
                },
                {
                    property: 'favouriteColour',
                    operator: 'NOT_CONTAINS',
                    value: 'blue'
                },
                {
                    none: {
                        rules: [
                            {
                                property: 'favouriteColour',
                                operator: 'EQUALS',
                                value: 'green'
                            },
                            {
                                property: 'money',
                                operator: 'EQUALS',
                                value: 99
                            },
                        ]
                    }
                }
            ]
        },
    },
    {
        all: {
            rules: [
                {
                    property: 'name',
                    operator: 'REGEX',
                    value: 'ky.*?e'
                },
            ]
        }
    }
];

   rulesEngine(test, rules)
            .then(({result, rules}) => {
              // use the overall result and see a breakdown of which rules comply
            });

Rule syntax:

The rules engine expects an array of rules, rule objects are either:

All, any, none rules Evaluate to true or false based on evaluating all child rules. Child rules can be leaf rules or nested All/any/none rules,

  • ALL: every child rule must evaluate as true
  • ANY: at least one of the child rules must evaluate as true
  • NONE: at least one of the child rules must evaluate as true
{
    all: {
        rules: [
            { // Nested all, any, none rule
                all|any|none: {
                    rules: [...]
                }
            },
            { // Leaf rule
                property:'',
                operator:'',
                value:'',
            }
        ]
    }
}

Leaf rules Evaluate to true or false based on the tested value, expected value and operator.

{
  property: 'eyeColour', // The name of the property that is being targeted .e.g
  operator: 'EQUALS', // The operator
  value: 'blue' // The expected value
}
