Module Description

factoryng

Build Status

An all-in-one angularjs factory that wraps multiple backends.

Why?

AngularJS is great and there are tons of amazing backends like pouch, firebase, etc... Unfortunately, some of your backend's structure ultimately leaks into your angular controllers. This means that your controllers are then tightly coupled with your backend, which makes it difficult to switch your backend without modifying your controllers.

With factoryng, you can feel free to develop your controllers with little regard to your backend. If you choose to switch backends, include a new backend or use multiple backends you don't have to worry about rewriting your controllers. Sure, your current backend works great for you now, but will it still be your top choice in 6 months?

Usage

Download via bower

Download via npm

Include the scripts

You must include any adapters that you are using and any underlying adapter technologies, e.g.

<script src="//cdn.jsdelivr.net/pouchdb/3.0.5/pouchdb.min.js"></script>
<script src="bower_components/factoryng/dist/adapters/pouchyng.min.js"></script>

<script src="//cdn.firebase.com/js/client/1.0.21/firebase.js"></script>
<script src="bower_components/factoryng/dist/adapters/firyng.min.js"></script>

API

Let Adapter be the adapter, e.g. Pouchyng, DeltaPouchyng, Firying, etc...

Instantiate

var adapter = new Adapter(name[, url, sortBy]);

e.g.

var adapter = new Adapter('todos', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984', yngutils.ASC);

or:

var adapter = new Adapter('todos', 'http://127.0.0.1:5984', function (a, b) {
  return a.someAttr - b.someAttr;
});

Bind

adapter.bind(scope);

e.g.

// Bind to $scope and load all docs
adapter.bind($scope).then(function () {
  console.log('done binding');
  console.log($scope.todos);
  // $scope.todos[0] = adapter.at(0)
  // $scope.todos[0].$id = the unique id of the doc
  // $scope.todos[0].$priority = the priority/order of the doc
});

Create Doc

adapter.create(doc);

e.g.

adapter.create(doc).then(function(createdDoc) {
  console.log('done creating doc');
  // createdDoc.$id = the unique id of the new doc
});

Update Doc

adapter.update(doc);

e.g.

adapter.update(doc).then(function (updatedDoc) {
  console.log('done updating doc');
  // updatedDoc.$id = the unique id of the updated doc
});

Prioritize/Order Doc

adapter.setPriority(docOrId, priority);

e.g.

adapter.setPriority('123', 4).then(function (updatedDoc) {
  console.log('done setting priority');
  // updatedDoc.$id = the unique id of the updated doc
  // adapter.get('123').$priority = 4
});

Remove Doc

adapter.remove(docOrId);

e.g.

adapter.remove(docOrId).then(function (deletedDoc) {
  console.log('done removing');
  // deletedDoc.$id = the unique id of the updated doc
});

For Each

adapter.forEach(callback[, thisArg]);

e.g.

adapter.forEach(function (element, index, array) {
  console.log('a[' + index + '] = ' + element);
});

At

adapter.at(index);

e.g.

adapter.at(0); // first doc
adapter.at(1); // second doc

Get

adapter.get(id);

e.g.

adapter.get('123'); // get doc with $id = '123'

Contributing

A few adapters have already been written. Is yours missing? Can you help us write it?
