Respect Your Data

Give your data the treatment it deserves with a framework-agnostic, datastore-agnostic JavaScript ORM built for ease of use and peace of mind. Works in Node.js and in the Browser.

Slack Status npm version Circle CI npm downloads Coverage Status

Quick Start

npm install --save documentdb js-data@rc js-data-documentdb@rc
import { Container } from 'js-data';
import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

const docAdapter = new DocumentDBAdapter({
	documentOpts: {
    // Store data in a DocumentDM database called "mydb"
    db: 'mydb',
    
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
});
const store = new Container();

store.registerAdapter('documentdb', docAdapter, { 'default': true });

store.defineMapper('school', {
  // Store data in a DocumentDB "schools" collection
  collection: 'schools'
});
store.defineMapper('student', {
  // Store data in a DocumentDB "students" collection
  collection: 'students'
});

// DocumentClient#readDocument(docLink, ...)
store.find('school', 1).then((school) => {
  console.log('school');
});

Dependencies

Has a peer dependency on documentdb.

See also JSData's dependencies.

Configuring the adapter

The JSData DocumentDB adapter can be configured upon instantiation and anytime thereafter. See the configuration options

import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new DocumentDBAdapter(options);

console.log(docAdapter.documentOpts.db); // "mydb"

docAdapter.documentOpts.db = 'otherdb';

console.log(docAdapter.documentOpts.db); // "otherdb"

Extending the adapter

The options arguments passed to the DocumentDBAdapter constructor function is mixed directly into the new instance. This allows you to extend the adapter during construction:

import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  },
  find: function (mapper, id, opts) {
    if (/* some condition */) {
      // do something custom
    }
    // Else, do default behavior
    return DocumentDBAdapter.prototype.find.call(this, mapper, id, opts);
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new DocumentDBAdapter(options);

You can also extend the DocumentDBAdapter class:

import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

class CustomDocumentDBAdapter extends DocumentDBAdapter {
  find(mapper, id, opts) {
    if (/* some condition */) {
      // do something custom
    }
    // Else, do default behavior
    return super.find(mapper, id, opts);
  }
}
const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new CustomDocumentDBAdapter(options);
var DocumentDBAdapter = require('js-data-documentdb').DocumentDBAdapter;

var CustomDocumentDBAdapter = DocumentDBAdapter.extend({
  find: function (mapper, id, opts) {
    if (/* some condition */) {
      // do something custom
    }
    // Else, do default behavior
    return DocumentDBAdapter.prototype.find.call(this, mapper, id, opts);
  }
});

var options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
var docAdapter = new CustomDocumentDBAdapter(options);

Custom queries

The DocumentDB adapter uses in instance of DocumentClient to communicate with Azure DocumentDB. You can access this client and use it to perform custom queries:

import { Container } from 'js-data';
import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

const store = new Container();
store.defineMapper('book', {
  collection: 'books'
});

const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new DocumentDBAdapter(options);
const client = docAdapter.client;

const booksLink = docAdapter.getCollectionLink(store.getMapper('book'));
const querySpec = {
	query: 'SELECT * from books'
};

client.queryDocuments(docAdapter, querySpec, (err, books) => {
	console.log(books);
});

Using the HTTP adapter's lifecycle hooks

Like JSData itself, the DocumentDB adapter has lifecycle hooks. You can find them enumerated in the API Reference Documentation. The DocumentDB adapter has the same CRUD lifecycle hooks as JSData.

Here's an example of overriding the afterFindAll:

import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-documentdb';

const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  },
  afterFindAll: function (mapper, query, opts, result) {
    if (/* some condition */) {
      // do something custom
    }
    // Now do the default behavior
    return DocumentDBAdapter.prototype.afterFindAll.call(this, mapper, query, opts, result);
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new DocumentDBAdapter(options);
import { DocumentDBAdapter } from 'js-data-http';

class CustomDocumentDBAdapter extends DocumentDBAdapter {
  afterFindAll(mapper, query, opts, result) {
    if (/* some condition */) {
      // do something custom
    }
    // Now do the default behavior
  	return super.afterFindAll(mapper, query, opts, result);
  } 
}

const options = {
	documentOpts: {
    db: 'mydb',
    urlConnection: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_ENDPOINT,
    auth: {
      masterKey: process.env.DOCUMENT_DB_KEY
    }
  }
};

// pass options to the constructor
const docAdapter = new CustomDocumentDBAdapter(options);
