build status

An AngularJS service provider to utilize indexedDB with angular

##Release Notes

1.1.1

Bugfix release. Addresses a problem with opening multiple stores and a problem with using this library in non-native indexedDB environments.

1.1.0

Lots of changes. The way of interacting with stores has changed so that you can operate more transaction-aware. Many things did not work in the prior version correctly. The service is now well tested and the base build is written in coffeescript.

Installation

For installation the use of Bower is recommended.

Bower

Call the following command on your command line:

bower install --save angular-indexed-db

And add the following line to your html file, for example index.html:

<script src="bower_components/angular-indexedDB/angular-indexed-db.js"></script>

Manual

  • Download file.
  • Add the following line to your html file:
<script src="angular-indexed-db.js"></script>

Usage

Normally, and as a recommendation, you have only one indexedDB per app. Thus in your app.js where you define your module, you do:

angular.module('myModuleName', ['indexedDB'])
  .config(function ($indexedDBProvider) {
    $indexedDBProvider
      .connection('myIndexedDB')
      .upgradeDatabase(1, function(event, db, tx){
        var objStore = db.createObjectStore('people', {keyPath: 'ssn'});
        objStore.createIndex('name_idx', 'name', {unique: false});
        objStore.createIndex('age_idx', 'age', {unique: false});
      });
  });

The connection method takes the databasename as parameter, the upgradeCallback has 3 parameters: function callback(event, database, transaction). AngularJS-indexedDB supports incremental upgrades. Simply define what to do for each version incrementally:

angular.module('myModuleName', ['indexedDB'])
  .config(function ($indexedDBProvider) {
    $indexedDBProvider
      .connection('myIndexedDB')
      .upgradeDatabase(1, function(event, db, tx){
        var objStore = db.createObjectStore('people', {keyPath: 'ssn'});
        objStore.createIndex('name_idx', 'name', {unique: false});
        objStore.createIndex('age_idx', 'age', {unique: false});
      });
      .upgradeDatabase(2, function(event, db, tx){
        db.createObjectStore('peoplePhones', {keyPath: 'person_ssn'});
      });
  });

When upgrade is required only the migrations which have not been run yet will be run. For upgrading your db structure, see https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/IndexedDB/Using_IndexedDB.

You can also define your own error handlers, overwriting the default ones, which log to console.

Inside your controller you use $indexedDB like this:

angular.module('myModuleName')
  .controller('myControllerName', function($scope, $indexedDB) {
    
    $scope.objects = [];
        
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
    
      store.insert({"ssn": "444-444-222-111","name": "John Doe", "age": 57}).then(function(e){...});
    
      store.getAll().then(function(people) {  
        // Update scope
        $scope.objects = people;
      });
    });
  });

openStore

When you open a store a transaction is created for all of your actions against that store you receive a promise for each operation within your transaction and also for the transaction as a whole as the result of "openStore". The transaction resolves successfully after state has been fully persisted.

store operations

The following operations are allowed on a store..

  • getAllKeys - Returns all the primary keys on the store
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      store.getAllKeys().then(function(e){
        $scope.primaryKeys = e;
      });
    });
  • clear - Deletes all items from the store
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      store.clear().then(function(){
        // do something
      });
    });
  • delete - Deletes a single item from the store
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      store.delete($scope.personID).then(function(){
        // do something
      });
    });
  • upsert - Upserts an item or list of items in the store
    // build photo array to upsert
    var addToPhotos = [];
    for(var j=0; j < file.length; j++){
        var photo = {"topicID": $scope.topicID, "filetype": file[j].filetype, "content": file[j].base64}
        addToPhotos.push(photo);
    }
    
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      
      // multiple items
      store.upsert(addToPhotos).then(function(e){
        // do something
      });
      
      // single item
      store.upsert({"id": $scope.topicID, "name": $scope.topicName}).then(function (e) {
        // do something
      });
    });
  • insert - Inserts an item or list of items in the store
    // build photo array to upsert
    var addToPhotos = [];
    for(var j=0; j < file.length; j++){
        var photo = {"topicID": $scope.topicID, "filetype": file[j].filetype, "content": file[j].base64}
        addToPhotos.push(photo);
    }
    
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      
      // multiple items
      store.insert(addToPhotos).then(function(e){
        // do something
      });
      
      // single item
      store.insert({"id": $scope.topicID, "name": $scope.topicName}).then(function (e) {
        // do something
      });
    });
  • getAll - Returns all items in the store
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      store.getAll().then(function(topics) {  
        // Update scope
        $scope.topics = topics;
      });
    });
  • each - iterates over all items in the store
  • eachBy - iterates over all items in the store using a named index.
  • eachWhere - uses the query() to execute a find against the store
$indexedDB.openStore('photos', function(photos){
  // build query
  var find = photos.query();
  find = find.$eq($scope.topicID);
  find = find.$index("topicID_idx");
  
  // update scope
  photos.eachWhere(find).then(function(e){
      $scope.photos = e;
  });
});
  • findWhere - an alias for eachWhere
  • count - returns a count of all the items
    $indexedDB.openStore('people', function(store){
      store.count().then(function(e){
        $scope.count = e;
      });
    });
  • find - returns a single item from the store
$indexedDB.openStore('photos', function(photos){
  photos.find($scope.key).then(function(e){
      $scope.photo = e;
  });
});
  • findBy - searches a particular index for an item
$indexedDB.openStore('photos', function(photos){
  photos.findBy($scope.indexName, $scope.key).then(function(e){
      $scope.photo = e;
  });
});
  • query - builds a new query obect for use against eachWhere
var find = photos.query();
find = find.$eq($scope.topicID);
find = find.$index("topicID_idx");

// available query functions
  $lt(value) - less than
  $gt(value) - greater than
  $lte(value) - less than or equal
  $gte(value) - greater than or equal
  $eq(value) - equal
  $between(lower, upper, doNotIncludeLowerBound? true/false, doNotIncludeUpperBound true/false) - between two bounds
  $desc(unique) - descending order
  $asc(unique) - ascending order
  $index(value) - name of index
