API

wampConnection / WAMP_CONNECTION

Before create instances of WampModel / WampCollection, you need eastablish autobahn connection and link it to global WAMP_CONNECTION or specific wampConnection for WampModel / WampCollection.

window.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

var wampConnection = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm2"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection"
  });
  var collection = new Collection(); // this collection used WAMP_CONNECTION
};

wampConnection.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection2"
    wampConnection: wampConnection
  });
  var collection = new Collection(); // this collection used wampConnection
}

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();
wampConnection.open();

wampMyId / WAMP_MY_ID

This unique peer-id of current environment, with which you want interact from other environments.

global.WAMP_MY_ID = "nodejs";
global.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection",
  });

  var Model = WampModel.extend({
    urlRoot: "test_model"
    wampMyId: "nodejs2"
  });

  var collection = new Collection(); // this available on "nodejs"
  var model = new Model(); // this available on "nodejs2"
};

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();

wampOtherId / WAMP_OTHER_ID

This means peer-id of environment, with which you want interact from current environment.

window.WAMP_OTHER_ID = "nodejs";
window.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection",
  });

  var Model = WampModel.extend({
    urlRoot: "test_model"
    wampOtherId: "nodejs2"
  });

  var collection = new Collection(); // this will interact with "nodejs"
  var model = new Model(); // this will interact with "nodejs2"
};

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();

constructor

When you create instances of WampModel / WampCollection, this automatically register listeners, using wampMyId / WAMP_MY_ID and urlRoot / url, if it present.
For ignoring this, need pass to constructor - wampNoAttach option.
For catching each registering need pass to constructor - wampRegister callback-option.

window.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection",
  });

  var Model = WampModel.extend({
    wampMyId: "browser"
  });

  var Model2 = WampModel.extend({
    urlRoot: "model2",
    wampMyId: "browser"
  })

  var collection = new Collection(); // no register listeners, wampMyId / WAMP_MY_ID ommited
  var model = new Model(); // no register listeners, urlRoot ommited
  var model2 = new Model2({}, {wampNoAttach: true}); // no register listeners, pass specific option
  model2 = new Model2({}, {wampRegister: function (errOrReg) { // register listeners
    // calling for registering each action: create | read | update | delete | patch
  }})
};

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();

wampCreate, wampRead, wampUpdate, wampDelete, wampPatch

This hooks automatically registers, when create instances of WampModel / WampCollection, if exists wampMyId / WAMP_MY_ID and urlRoot / url and not pass wampNoAttach option.

Received param: sendOptions

sendOptions.data contains JSON-parsed model for create, update, patch actions. Or GET-params for read action of model/collection.
sendOptions.extra contain any extra information, which you can send in options.wampExtra
Built-in options in sendOptions.extra:

  • wampModelId of specific model, if needed
  • wampMyId of another environment
Return

Need return data or promise, that resolved to data.
For error need return new autobahn.Error(...) or promise, that resolve new autobahn.Error(...)
For example, see Overview example above.

wampGetUri / WAMP_GET_URI

By default, via methods save, fetch, e.t.c. generated WebSocket messages as is peerId.uri.action
Example: "nodejs.test_collection.create"
You can overwrite template if needed via wampGetUri / WAMP_GET_URI, that

Received params: peerId, uri, action
Return: string of WebSocket message

wampAuth / WAMP_AUTH

When defined, will be called before wampCreate, wampRead, wampUpdate, wampDelete, wampPatch.
If it's return non true value or promise, that resolved to non true, wampCreate, wampRead, wampUpdate, wampDelete, wampPatch not be called.

Received params: uriOptions, sendOptions

uriOptions contain peerId, uri, action

more about sendOptionsin wampCreate, wampRead, ... partition

Return: true or promise, that resolved to true (if auth passed)
global.WAMP_MY_ID = "nodejs";
global.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection",
    wampAuth: function (uriOptions, sendOptions) {
      // it pseudo code with concept
      return new Promise(function (resolve) {
        db.find({peer: sendOptions.extra.wampMyId}).then(function (finded) {
          resolve(finded) // if finded === true, auth passed
        })
      });
    },
    wampRead: function () {
      // this called, if wampAuth return promise, that resolved to true
    }
  });

  var collection = new Collection();
};

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();
Session

This can be useful for wampAuth.
For session mechanism need dynamically generate wampMyId.
Example: browser_0dbee552-46e0-4c7c-aa4e-e1341dc00b18
Use any UUID, GUID, e.t.c. generator, maybe node-uuid

wampUnregister

Call this method directly on instances of WampModel / WampCollection for unregistering wampCreate, wampRead, ... methods.

Received params: actions, callback

actions it array, for example ["read", "delete"]
If omitted, will unregister all actions

callback called per each unregistering action

global.WAMP_MY_ID = "nodejs";
global.WAMP_CONNECTION = new autobahn.Connection({
  url: "ws://127.0.0.1:9000/ws",
  realm: "realm1"
});

WAMP_CONNECTION.onopen = function () {
  var Collection = WampCollection.extend({
    url: "test_collection"
  });

  var collection = new Collection();
  collection.wampUnregister(null, function (err, uri) {
    // called per each unregistering action
  });
};

WAMP_CONNECTION.open();
