Introduction

travis npm

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

Connecting to an in-memory repository in read mode

var viewmodel = require('viewmodel');

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

Connecting to any repository (mongodb in the example / mode=write)

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
        // authSource: 'authedicationDatabase',        // optional
  	    // username: 'technicalDbUser',                // optional
  	    // password: 'secret'                          // optional
        // url: 'mongodb://user:pass@host:port/db?opts // optional
    },
    function(err, repository) {
        if(err) {
            console.log('ohhh :-(');
            return;
        }
    }
);

Catch connect ad disconnect events

var repository = viewmodel.write({ type: 'mongodb' });
repository.on('connect', function() {
    console.log('hello from event');
});
repository.on('disconnect', function() {
    console.log('bye');
});
repository.connect();

Define a collection...

var dummyRepo = repository.extend({
    collectionName: 'dummy'
});

Create a new viewmodel (only in write mode)

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) {
    });
});

Find...

// 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'));
});

Find with query options

// 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'));
});

FindOne

// 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'));
    }
});

Find by id...

// 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'));
});

Delete a viewmodel (only in write mode)

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) {
    });
});

Obtain a new id

myQueue.getNewId(function(err, newId) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }

    console.log('the new id is: ' + newId);
});

Clear a "collection" (only in write mode)

dummyRepo.clear(function(err) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }
});

Implementation differences

Some implementations support bulkCommit

dummyRepo.bulkCommit([vm1, vm2, vm3], function(err) {
    if(err) {
        console.log('ohhh :-(');
        return;
    }
});

currently supported by:

  • inmemory
  • mongodb
  • elasticsearch6

mongodb

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

var dummyRepo = repository.extend({
    collectionName: 'dummy',
    // like that
    indexes: [
        'profileId',
        // or:
        { profileId: 1 },
        // or:
        { index: {profileId: 1}, options: {} }
    ]
    // or like that
    repositorySettings : {
        mongodb: {
            indexes: [ // same as above
                'profileId',
                // or:
                { profileId: 1 },
                // or:
                { index: {profileId: 1}, options: {} }
            ]
        }
    }
});

redis

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

Elasticsearch >= 5.X

Use the 'elasticsearch6' type for Elasticsearch versions 5.X and 6.X.

The find queries are not mongoDb compatible as the rest of the implementations due to the uneeded overhead and complexity of converting between both formats.

For find queries with elasticsearch6 use elasticsearch native elastic Query DSL;

repository.find( onlyTheQueryClause, otherBodyOptions, callback);

    repository.find(
        {
            range : {
                age : {
                    gte : 10,
                    lte : 20
                }
            }
        ),
        {
            from: 0,
            size: 10,
            sort: { age: 'asc' }
        },
        function(error, results) {
        });

Additionaly for elasticsearch6 the number of shards, number of replicas, the refresh behaivour on index and the mappings on index create can be addtionaly defined to optimize performace.

    var dummyRepo = repository.extend({
        collectionName: 'dummy',
        repositorySettings: {
            elasticsearch6: {
                refresh: 'wait_for', // optional, refresh behaviour on index, default is true ( ie. force index refresh ) https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/docs-refresh.html                
                waitForActiveShards: 2 // optional, defaults to 1 ( ie. wait only for primary ) https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/indices-create-index.html#create-index-wait-for-active-shards
                index: { // optional applied on index create, https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/6.x/indices-create-index.html
                    settings : { // will be merged with the default ones,
                        number_of_shards: 3, // optional defaults to 1,
                        number_of_replicas: 1 // optional defaults to 0,
                    },
                    mappings : { // optiona will be merged with the default ones,
                        properties: { // specific properties to not be handled by dynamic mapper
                            title: {
                                type: "text"
                            }
                        }                    
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    });

own db implementation

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;
