node-eventstore-client

A port of the EventStore .Net ClientAPI to Node.js

Status

Missing features:

  • Set system settings

Areas to improve

  • Errors
    • Use codes or types to differentiate between errors
  • Performance
    • Performance hasn't been tested yet
  • Tests
    • Can always do with more tests

Getting started

Install using npm install node-eventstore-client

Dependencies

Install and run an Eventstore on localhost

See https://eventstore.org/docs/introduction/4.1.0/

Note: If you are using a version of EventStore prior to 3.9.4, you need to use version 0.1.x of this package npm install node-eventstore-client@^0.1.

Example: Storing an event

Save to app.js:

var esClient = require('node-eventstore-client');
var uuid = require('uuid');

var streamName = "testStream";
/* 
  Connecting to a single node using "tcp://localhost:1113"
  - to connect to a cluster via dns discovery use "discover://my.host:2113"
  - to connect to a cluster via gossip seeds use 
  [
    new esClient.GossipSeed({host: '192.168.1.10', port: 2113}), 
    new esClient.GossipSeed({host: '192.168.1.11', port: 2113}), 
    new esClient.GossipSeed({host: '192.168.1.12', port: 2113})
  ]
*/
var connSettings = {};  // Use defaults
var esConnection = esClient.createConnection(connSettings, "tcp://localhost:1113");
esConnection.connect();
esConnection.once('connected', function (tcpEndPoint) {
    console.log('Connected to eventstore at ' + tcpEndPoint.host + ":" + tcpEndPoint.port);
});

var eventId = uuid.v4();
var eventData = {
    a : Math.random(), 
    b: uuid.v4()
};
var event = esClient.createJsonEventData(eventId, eventData, null, 'testEvent');
console.log("Appending...");
esConnection.appendToStream(streamName, esClient.expectedVersion.any, event)
    .then(function(result) {
        console.log("Stored event:", eventId);
        console.log("Look for it at: http://localhost:2113/web/index.html#/streams/testStream");
        esConnection.close();
    })
    .catch(function(err) {
        console.log(err);
    });

Run:

npm install uuid
npm install node-eventstore-client
node app.js

Example: Subscribing to events

cd samples

To subscribe to all events from now on (includes example of a filter which ignores events which we aren't interested in):

node subscribe-all-events.js

To catch up on all events ever and subscribe to all new ones from now on:

node subscribe-catchup-all-events.js

To generate a test event, open a separate console and run:

node store-event.js

Running the tests

To run the tests it is recommended that you use an in-memory instance of the eventstore so you don't pollute your dev instance.

EventStore.ClusterNode.exe --run-projections=all --memdb –certificate-file=yourcert.pfx
or
./run-node.sh --run-projections=all --memdb –certificate-file=yourcert.p12

For SSL setup see:

https://eventstore.org/docs/server/setting_up_ssl/
or
https://eventstore.org/docs/server/setting_up_ssl_linux/

To execute the tests suites simply run

npm test

Porting .Net Task to Node.js

Any async commands returns a Promise object in replacement of .Net Task.
