JSON API Store Build Status NPM Version bitHound Score

An isomorphic JavaScript library that acts as an in memory data store for JSON API data. Changes are broadcast using RxJS. Built to work with React.

Installing

NPM

npm i json-api-store

Bower

bower i json-api-store

Download

To use directly in the browser you can grab the store.prod.js file.

Usage

Browser

At the moment the primary use can for JSON API Store is in the browser:

// Create a new store instance.
var adapter = new Store.AjaxAdapter({ base: "/api/v1" });
var store = new Store(adapter);

// Define the "categories" type.
store.define([ "categories", "category" ], {
  title: Store.attr(),
  products: Store.hasMany()
});

// Define the "products" type.
store.define([ "products", "product" ], {
  title: Store.attr(),
  category: Store.hasOne()
});

// Subscribe to events using RxJS.
store.observable.subscribe(function (event) {
  console.log(event.name, event.type, event.id, event.resource);
});

// Load all the products.
store.loadAll("products", { include: "category" }).subscribe(function (products) {

  products.length; // 1
  products[0].id; // "1"
  products[0].title; // "Example Book"
  products[0].category.id; // "1"
  products[0].category.title; // "Books"

  products[0] === store.find("products", "1"); // true
  products[0].category === store.find("categories", "1"); // true

});

Node

You can also use JSON API Store in a Node.js environment (currently, there aren't any adapters that work in a Node.js):

NOTE: Without an adapter the CLUD methods (create, load, update and destroy) cannot be used.

var Store = require("json-api-store");

var store = new Store();

store.define([ "categories", "category" ], {
  title: Store.attr(),
  products: Store.hasMany()
});

store.define([ "products", "product" ], {
  title: Store.attr(),
  category: Store.hasOne()
});

store.add({
  type: "products",
  id: "1",
  attributes: {
    title: "Example Product"
  },
  relationships: {
    category: {
      data: {
        type: "categories",
        id: "1"
      }
    }
  }
});

store.add({
  type: "categories",
  id: "1",
  attributes: {
    title: "Example Category"
  }
});

store.find("products", "1").category.title; // "Example Category"
