node-eventstore


Introduction

travis npm

The project goal is to provide an eventstore implementation for node.js:

Consumers

Installation

npm install eventstore

Usage

Require the module and init the eventstore:

var eventstore = require('eventstore');

var es = eventstore();

By default the eventstore will use an inmemory Storage.

Logging

For logging and debugging you can use debug by TJ Holowaychuk

simply run your process with

DEBUG=eventstore* node app.js

Provide implementation for storage

example with mongodb:

var es = require('eventstore')({
  type
: 'mongodb',
  host
: 'localhost',                          // optional
  port
: 27017,                                // optional

  timeout
: 10000                              // optional
 
// maxSnapshotsCount: 3                        // optional, defaultly will keep all snapshots
 
// authSource: 'authedicationDatabase',        // optional
 
// username: 'technicalDbUser',                // optional
 
// password: 'secret'                          // optional
 
// url: 'mongodb://user:pass@host:port/db?opts // optional
});

example with redis:

var es = require('eventstore')({
  type
: 'redis',
  host
: 'localhost',                          // optional
  port
: 6379,                                 // optional
  db
: 0,                                      // optional
  prefix

// maxSnapshotsCount: 3                        // optional, defaultly will keep all snapshots
 
// password: 'secret'                          // optional
});

example with tingodb:

var es = require('eventstore')({
  type
: 'tingodb',
  dbPath
: '/path/to/my/db/file',              // optional
  eventsCollectionName
: 'events',             // optional

// maxSnapshotsCount: 3                        // optional, defaultly will keep all snapshots
});

example with azuretable:

var es = require('eventstore')({
  type
: 'azuretable',
  storageAccount
: 'nodeeventstore',
  storageAccessKey
: 'aXJaod96t980AbNwG9Vh6T3ewPQnvMWAn289Wft9RTv+heXQBxLsY3Z4w66CI7NN12+1HUnHM8S3sUbcI5zctg==',
  storageTableHost

  snapshotsTableName
: 'snapshots',       // optional
  timeout
: 10000                              // optional
});

SnapshotWriteCapacityUnits: 3,              // optional
   
UndispatchedEventsReadCapacityUnits: 1,     // optional
});

DynamoDB credentials are obtained by eventstore either from environment vars or credentials file. For setup see AWS Javascript SDK.

DynamoDB provider supports DynamoDB local for local development via the AWS SDK endpoint option. Just set the $AWS_DYNAMODB_ENDPOINT (or %AWS_DYNAMODB_ENDPOINT% in Windows) environment variable to point to your running instance of Dynamodb local like this:

$ export AWS_DYNAMODB_ENDPOINT=http://localhost:8000

Or on Windows:

> set AWS_DYNAMODB_ENDPOINT=http://localhost:8000

Built-in event publisher (optional)

if defined the eventstore will try to publish AND set event do dispatched on its own...

sync interface

es.useEventPublisher(function(evt) {
 
// bus.emit('event', evt);
});

async interface

es.useEventPublisher(function(evt, callback) {
 
// bus.sendAndWaitForAck('event', evt, callback);
});

catch connect ad disconnect events

es.on('connect', function() {
  console
.log('storage connected');
});

es
.on('disconnect', function() {
  console
.log('connection to storage is gone');
});

define event mappings [optional]

Define which values should be mapped/copied to the payload event.

es.defineEventMappings({
  id
: 'id',
  commitId
: 'commitId',
  commitSequence
: 'commitSequence',
  commitStamp
: 'commitStamp',
  streamRevision
: 'streamRevision'
});

initialize

es.init(function (err) {
 
// this callback is called when all is ready...
});

// or

ex
.init(); // callback is optional

working with the eventstore

get the eventhistory (of an aggregate)

es.getEventStream('streamId', function(err, stream) {
 
var history = stream.events; // the original event will be in events[i].payload

 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

or

es.getEventStream({
  aggregateId
: 'myAggregateId',
  aggregate
: 'person',          // optional
  context
: 'hr'                 // optional
}, function(err, stream) {
 
var history = stream.events; // the original event will be in events[i].payload

 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

'streamId' and 'aggregateId' are the same... In ddd terms aggregate and context are just to be more precise in language. For example you can have a 'person' aggregate in the context 'human ressources' and a 'person' aggregate in the context of 'business contracts'... So you can have 2 complete different aggregate instances of 2 complete different aggregates (but perhaps with same name) in 2 complete different contexts

you can request an eventstream even by limit the query with a 'minimum revision number' and a 'maximum revision number'

var revMin = 5,
    revMax
= 8; // if you omit revMax or you define it as -1 it will retrieve until the end

es
.getEventStream('streamId' || {/* query */}, revMin, revMax, function(err, stream) {
 
var history = stream.events; // the original event will be in events[i].payload

 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

store a new event and commit it to store

es.getEventStream('streamId', function(err, stream) {
  stream
.addEvent({ my: 'event' });
  stream
.addEvents([{ my: 'event2' }]);

  stream
.commit();

 
// or

  stream
.commit(function(err, stream) {
    console
.log(stream.eventsToDispatch); // this is an array containing all added events in this commit.
 
});
});

if you defined an event publisher function the committed event will be dispatched to the provided publisher

if you just want to load the last event as stream you can call getLastEventAsStream instead of ┬┤getEventStream┬┤.

working with snapshotting

get snapshot and eventhistory from the snapshot point

es.getFromSnapshot('streamId', function(err, snapshot, stream) {
 
var snap = snapshot.data;
 
var history = stream.events; // events history from given snapshot

 
// myAggregate.loadSnapshot(snap);
 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

or

es.getFromSnapshot({
  aggregateId
: 'myAggregateId',
  aggregate
: 'person',          // optional
  context
: 'hr'                 // optional
}, function(err, snapshot, stream) {
 
var snap = snapshot.data;
 
var history = stream.events; // events history from given snapshot

 
// myAggregate.loadSnapshot(snap);
 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

you can request a snapshot and an eventstream even by limit the query with a 'maximum revision number'

var revMax = 8; // if you omit revMax or you define it as -1 it will retrieve until the end

es
.getFromSnapshot('streamId' || {/* query */}, revMax, function(err, stream) {
 
var snap = snapshot.data;
 
var history = stream.events; // events history from given snapshot

 
// myAggregate.loadSnapshot(snap);
 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);
});

create a snapshot point

es.getFromSnapshot('streamId', function(err, snapshot, stream) {

 
var snap = snapshot.data;
 
var history = stream.events; // events history from given snapshot

 
// myAggregate.loadSnapshot(snap);
 
// myAggregate.loadFromHistory(history);

 
// create a new snapshot depending on your rules
 
if (history.length > myLimit) {
    es
.createSnapshot({
      streamId
: 'streamId',
      data
: myAggregate.getSnap(),
      revision
: stream.lastRevision,
      version
: 1 // optional
   
}, function(err) {
     
// snapshot saved
   
});

   
// or

    es
.createSnapshot({
      aggregateId
: 'myAggregateId',
      aggregate
: 'person',          // optional
      context
: 'hr'                 // optional
      data
: myAggregate.getSnap(),
      revision
: stream.lastRevision,
      version
: 1 // optional
   
}, function(err) {
     
// snapshot saved
   
});
 
}

 
// go on: store new event and commit it
 
// stream.addEvents...

});

own event dispatching (no event publisher function defined)

es.getUndispatchedEvents(function(err, evts) {
// or es.getUndispatchedEvents('streamId', function(err, evts) {
// or es.getUndispatchedEvents({ // free choice (all, only context, only aggregate, only aggregateId...)
//                                context: 'hr',
//                                aggregate: 'person',
//                                aggregateId: 'uuid'
//                              }, function(err, evts) {

 
// all undispatched events
  console
.log(evts);

 
// dispatch it and set the event as dispatched

 
for (var e in evts) {
   
var evt = evts[r];
    es
.setEventToDispatched(evt, function(err) {});
   
// or
    es
.setEventToDispatched(evt.id, function(err) {});
 
}

});

query your events

for replaying your events or for rebuilding a viewmodel or just for fun...

skip, limit always optional

var skip = 0,
    limit
= 100; // if you omit limit or you define it as -1 it will retrieve until the end

es
.getEvents(skip, limit, function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

// or

es
.getEvents('streamId', skip, limit, function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

// or

es
.getEvents({ // free choice (all, only context, only aggregate, only aggregateId...)
  context
: 'hr',
  aggregate
: 'person',
  aggregateId
: 'uuid'
}, skip, limit, function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

by revision

revMin, revMax always optional

var revMin = 5,
    revMax
= 8; // if you omit revMax or you define it as -1 it will retrieve until the end

es
.getEventsByRevision('streamId', revMin, revMax, function(err, evts) {});

// or

es
.getEventsByRevision({
  aggregateId
: 'myAggregateId',
  aggregate
: 'person',          // optional
  context
: 'hr'                 // optional
}, revMin, revMax, function(err, evts) {});

by commitStamp

skip, limit always optional

var skip = 0,
    limit
= 100; // if you omit limit or you define it as -1 it will retrieve until the end

es
.getEventsSince(new Date(2015, 5, 23), skip, limit, function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

// or

es
.getEventsSince(new Date(2015, 5, 23), limit, function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

// or

es
.getEventsSince(new Date(2015, 5, 23), function(err, evts) {
 
// if (events.length === amount) {
 
//   events.next(function (err, nextEvts) {}); // just call next to retrieve the next page...
 
// } else {
 
//   // finished...
 
// }
});

get the last event

for example to obtain the last revision nr

es.getLastEvent('streamId', function(err, evt) {
});

// or

es
.getLastEvent({ // free choice (all, only context, only aggregate, only aggregateId...)
  context
: 'hr',
  aggregate
: 'person',
  aggregateId
: 'uuid'
} function(err, evt) {
});

obtain a new id

es.getNewId(function(err, newId) {
 
if(err) {
    console
.log('ohhh :-(');
   
return;
 
}

  console
.log('the new id is: ' + newId);
});

special scaling handling with mongodb

Inserting multiple events (documents) in mongodb, is not atomic. For the eventstore tries to repair itself when calling getEventsByRevision. But if you want you can trigger this from outside:

es.store.getPendingTransactions(function(err, txs) {
 
if(err) {
    console
.log('ohhh :-(');
   
return;
 
}

 
// txs is an array of objects like:
 
// {
 
//   _id: '/* the commitId of the committed event stream */',
 
//   events: [ /* all events of the committed event stream */ ],
 
//   aggregateId: 'aggregateId',
 
//   aggregate: 'aggregate', // optional
 
//   context: 'context'      // optional
 
// }

  es
.store.getLastEvent({
    aggregateId
: txs[0].aggregateId,
    aggregate
: txs[0].aggregate, // optional
    context
: txs[0].context      // optional
 
}, function (err, lastEvent) {
   
if(err) {
      console
.log('ohhh :-(');
     
return;
   
}

    es
.store.repairFailedTransaction(lastEvent, function (err) {
     
if(err) {
        console
.log('ohhh :-(');
       
return;
     
}

      console
.log('everything is fine');
   
});
 
});
});

Release notes

Database Support

Currently these databases are supported:

  1. inmemory
  2. mongodb (node-mongodb-native)
  3. redis (redis)
  4. tingodb (tingodb)
  5. azuretable (azure-storage)
  6. dynamodb (aws-sdk)

own db implementation

You can use your own db implementation by extending this...

var Store = require('eventstore').Store,
    util
= require('util'),
    _
= require('lodash');

function MyDB(options) {
  options
= options || {};
 
Store.call(this, options);
}

util
.inherits(MyDB, Store);

_
.extend(MyDB.prototype, {

 
// ...

});

module.exports = MyDB;

and you can use it in this way

var es = require('eventstore')({
  type
: MyDB
});
// es.init...
