Gotu Kola

Gotu Kola helps define your business entities (*)

(*) Entities: they are the first natural place we should aim to place business logic in domain-driven applications.

Installing

$ npm install gotu

Using

const { entity, field } = require('gotu') const Feature = entity('Feature', { name: field(String), hasAccess: field(Boolean) }) const Plan = entity('Plan', { name: field(String), monthlyCost: field(Number) }) const User = entity('User', { name: field(String), lastAccess: field(Date), accessCount: field(Number), features: field([Feature]), plan: field(Plan), }) const user = new User() user.name = "Beth" user.plan.monthlyCost = 10 user.features = [ new Feature(), new Feature(), new Feature() ] user.validate()

Validation

A value of an field can be validated against the field type or its custom validation.

Type Validation

const Plan = entity('Plan', { ... monthlyCost: field(Number), }) const User = entity('User', { name: field(String), plan: field(Plan) }) const user = new User() user.name = 42 user.plan.monthlyCost = true user.validate() user.errors // { name: [ wrongType: 'String' ], plan: { monthlyCost: [ wrongType: 'Number' ] } } user.isValid() // false

You can also simplify you validation method using isValid() method that execute validate implicit for you entity and return true/false in a single execution and also you can check the errors.

const Plan = entity('Plan', { ... monthlyCost: field(Number), }) const plan = new Plan() plan.plan.monthlyCost = true plan.isValid() // false plan.errors // { monthlyCost: [ wrongType: 'Number' ] }

Custom Validation

For custom validation Gotu uses Herbs JS Suma library under the hood. It has no message defined, only error codes.

Use { validation: ... } to specify a valid Suma validation (sorry) on the field definition.

const User = entity('User', { ... password: field(String, validation: { presence: true, length: { minimum: 6 } }), cardNumber: field(String, validation: { custom: { invalidCardNumber: (value) => value.length === 16 } }) }) const user = new User() user.password = '1234' user.cardNumber = '1234456' user.validate() user.errors // [{ password: [ { isTooShort: 6 } ] , { "invalidCardNumber": true }] user.isValid // false

Serialization

fromJSON(value)

Returns a new instance of a entity

const User = entity('User', { name: field(String) }) // from object const user = User.fromJSON({ name: 'Beth'}) // or string const user = User.fromJSON(`{ "name": "Beth"}`)

By default fromJSON serializes only keys that have been defined in the entity. If you want to add other keys during serialization, use .fromJSON(data, { allowExtraKeys: true }).

By default, fromJSON default field values will be applied for keys not present in value.

JSON.stringify(entity)

To serialize an entity to JSON string use JSON.stringify or entity.toJSON function.

const json = JSON.stringify(user) // { "name": "Beth" }

By default toJSON serializes only keys that have been defined in the entity. If you want to add other keys during serialization, use entity.toJSON({ allowExtraKeys: true }).

Field definition

A entity field type has a name, type, default value, validation and more.

Scalar types

A field in an entity can be of basic types, the same as those used by JavaScript:

Number: double-precision 64-bit binary format IEEE 754 value

String: a UTF‐16 character sequence

Boolean: true or false

Date: represents a single moment in time in a platform-independent format.

const User = entity('User', { name: field(String), lastAccess: field(Date), accessCount: field(Number), hasAccess: field(Boolean) })

Entity type

For complex types, with deep relationship between entities, a field can be of entity type:

const Plan = entity('Plan', { ... monthlyCost: field(Number), }) const User = entity('User', { ... plan: field(Plan) })

List of Entity type

For complex types, with deep relationship between entities, a field can contain a list of entity type:

const Plan = entity('Plan', { ... monthlyCost: field(Number), }) const User = entity('User', { ... plan: field([Plan]) })

Default value

It is possible to define a default value when an entity instance is initiate.

const User = entity('User', { ... hasAccess: field(Boolean, { default: false }) }) const user = new User() user.hasAccess // false

If the default value is a function it will call the function and return the value as default value:

const User = entity('User', { ... hasAccess: field(Boolean, { default: () => false }) }) const user = new User() user.hasAccess // false

For scalar types a default value is assumed if a default value is not given:

TypeDefault Value
Number0
String""
Booleanfalse
Datenull

For entity types the default value is a new instance of that type. It is possible to use null as default:

const User = entity('User', { ... plan: field(Plan, { default: null }) }) const user = new User() user.plan // null

Method definition

A method can be defined to create custom behaviour in an entity:

const User = entity('User', { ... role: field(String), hasAccess() { return this.role === "admin" }, }) const user = new User() const access = user.hasAccess()

Instance Type Check - Entity.parentOf

Check if a instance is the same type from its parent entity class (similar to instanceOf)

const AnEntity = entity('A entity', {}) const AnSecondEntity = entity('A second entity', {}) const instance1 = new AnEntity() const instance2 = new AnSecondEntity() AnEntity.parentOf(instance1) // true AnEntity.parentOf(instance2) // false

Entity Type Check - entity.isEntity

Check if an object is a Gotu Entity class

const AnEntity = entity('A entity', {}) const instance1 = new AnEntity() entity.isEntity(AnEntity) // true entity.isEntity(Object) // false

The Herb

Gotu Kola has been used historically to relieve congestion from upper respiratory infections and colds and for wound healing. It is very popular for treating varicose veins and memory loss.
