molecule Build Status Clojars Project

Overview

Molecule is a simple, intuitive wrapper for the datomic library with the goal (for now) of simplying the querying of datomic entities.

Why should I care?

Have you found yourself writing derivations of this?

(->> (d/q '[:find ?e
            :in $ ?name
            :where [?e :object/name ?name]]
            db name)
       ffirst
       (d/entity db))

=> {:db/id 17592186045422}

OMG:

(entity {:object/name name})

=> {:db/id 17592186045422}

BUT! What about multiple entities?! Well that's easy too!

(->> (d/q '[:find ?e
            :in $ ?name
            :where [?e :object/type :object.type/gas]]
          db name)
     (map #(d/entity db (first %))))

=> ({:db/id 17592186045420} {:db/id 17592186045422})

!!!

(entities {:object/type :object.type/gas})

=> ({:db/id 17592186045420} {:db/id 17592186045422})

It does all this and a little more. Please look at the examples below.

Installation

This should be really easy!

[molecule "0.1.1-SNAPSHOT"] ;; add to your project.clj

Then it's as simple as requiring molecule in the namespaces you'd like to use it from within

(ns mycoolapp.query
  (:require [molecule.core :as m]))

In order for molecule to work we need to initialize our conn atom I have made this handy-dandy function to help with that.

(init db-uri)

It will also load your schema (and seed data), if you'd like. Both of these args are optional.

(init db-uri "schema-path.edn" "seed-data.edn")

The database value is always at your fingertips.

(db)

Note:

You are by no means forced to use either the init or the db fn's. You are welcome to manage your own connection.

All functions accept a database-value as the first argument to the fn's.

(entities your-db :object.type/gas)

Show me more!

It's good to know that all molecule functions accept the database value as an argument:

(entity (db) 17592186045420)

=> {:db/id 17592186045420}

Well let's start simple. We can fetch an entity using an entity-id

(entity 17592186045420)

=> {:db/id 17592186045420}

Or by multiple entity ids

(entities {:db/id [17592186045420 17592186045422]}

=> ({:db/id 17592186045420} {:db/id 17592186045422})

Sometimes just an entity id is enough.

(e {:object/type :object.type/gas})

=> (17592186045420 17592186045422)

This is where it starts to get useful. Ever needed all the entities with an attribute?!

(entities :object/name)

=> ({:db/id 17592186045419} {:db/id 17592186045420} ...)

Have you ever needed to work with more complicated entity relationships? Perhaps a planet within a solar system? Molecule makes it easy to traverse parent entities. Let's create a solar system and add some objects.

@(d/transact @conn [{:db/id (d/tempid :db.part/user)
                                      :solar-system/name "OURS"
                                      :solar-system/planets (e :object/name)}])

=> {:db-before datomic.db.Db@860d79f3, :db-after datomic.db.Db@f6674476, :tx-data [#datom[13194139534334 50 #inst "2017-01-08T19:06:39.509-00:00" 13194139534334 true] #datom[17592186045439 63 "OURS" 13194139534334 true] #datom[17592186045439 64 17592186045419 13194139534334 true] #datom[17592186045439 64 17592186045420 13194139534334 true] ..., :tempids {-9223350046623220537 17592186045439}}

;; Now we can actually do this! And it will only show the objects within our solar system

(entities {:solar-system/_planets 17592186045439 :object/name "Jupiter"})

=> ({:db/id 17592186045420})
