Vuex Rest API action creator and model cacher

This module makes it easier to create Vuex store actions, mutators, getters and state for communicating with rest APIs.

Installation

yarn add @netsells/vuex-rest-api-cache

Setup

import Vuex from 'vuex';
import Vrac from 'vuex-rest-api-cache';

const posts = new Vrac({
    baseUrl: `${ API_URL }/posts`,
    children: {
        comments: {
            baseUrl: `${ API_URL }/posts/:post_id/comments`
        },
    },
}).store;

const store = new Vuex.Store({
    modules: {
        posts,
    },
});

Quick Usage

This includes usage examples for root models (e.g. /api/v1/posts) and for child models (e.g. /api/v1/posts/:post_id/comments)

Index

Get a list of models from the API. Will cache each model. Will always create a new API request instead of using the cache.

const posts = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/index');

const comments = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/comments/index', {
    fields: {
        post_id: 1,
    },
});

Create

Create a model. Will cache the model returned by the API. Will always create a new API request.

const post = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/create', {
    fields: {
        text: 'Foo bar',
    },
});

const comment = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/comments/create', {
    fields: {
        post_id: post.id,
        message: 'Foo bar',
    },
});

Read

Read a model. Will cache the model returned by the API. Will always use a cached model over reading from the API.

const post = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/read', {
    fields: {
        id: 45,
    },
});

const comment = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/comments/read', {
    fields: {
        post_id: post.id,
        id: 3,
    },
});

Update

Update a model. Will cache the model returned by the API. Will always create a new API request.

const post = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/update', {
    fields: {
        id: 45,
        text: 'Bar foo',
    },
});

const comment = await this.$store.dispatch('posts/comments/update', {
    fields: {
        post_id: post.id,
        id: 3,
        message: 'Hello world',
    },
});

Destroy

Destroy a model. Will remove the model from the cache. Will always create a new API request.

await this.$store.dispatch('posts/destroy', {
    fields: {
        id: 45,
    },
});

await this.$store.dispatch('posts/comments/destroy', {
    fields: {
        post_id: post.id,
        id: 3,
    },
});

Changing the HTTP Requests

Vrac sends all HTTP requests through Vrac.requestAdapter. By default, this passes the params straight through to axios.request. By overriding this function, you can either modify the request (e.g. to add authorization headers) or use a completely different HTTP library.

Vrac.requestAdapter = function(requestParams) {
    return axios.request(requestParams);
};
You can’t perform that action at this time.
