Optimize Toolset

I’ve always been into building performant and accessible sites, but lately I’ve been taking it extremely seriously. So much so that I’ve been building a tool to help me optimize and monitor the sites that I build to make sure that I’m making an attempt to offer the best experience to those who visit them. If you’re into performant, accessible and SEO friendly sites, you might like it too! You can check it out at Optimize Toolset.

About

Hi, 👋, I’m Ryan Hefner  and I built this site for me, and you! The goal of this site was to provide an easy way for me to check the stats on my npm packages, both for prioritizing issues and updates, and to give me a little kick in the pants to keep up on stuff.

As I was building it, I realized that I was actually using the tool to build the tool, and figured I might as well put this out there and hopefully others will find it to be a fast and useful way to search and browse npm packages as I have.

If you’re interested in other things I’m working on, follow me on Twitter or check out the open source projects I’ve been publishing on GitHub.

I am also working on a Twitter bot for this site to tweet the most popular, newest, random packages from npm. Please follow that account now and it will start sending out packages soon–ish.

Open Software & Tools

This site wouldn’t be possible without the immense generosity and tireless efforts from the people who make contributions to the world and share their work via open source initiatives. Thank you 🙏

@tradle/Dynogels is a DynamoDB data mapper for node.js. This project has been forked from Dynogels which in turn has been forked from Vogels and republished to npm.

Features

Installation

npm install dynogels

Getting Started

First, you need to configure the AWS SDK with your credentials.

var dynogels = require('dynogels');
dynogels.AWS.config.loadFromPath('credentials.json');

When running on EC2 it's recommended to leverage EC2 IAM roles. If you have configured your instance to use IAM roles, Vogels will automatically select these credentials for use in your application, and you do not need to manually provide credentials in any other format.

var dynogels = require('dynogels');
dynogels.AWS.config.update({region: "REGION"}); // region must be set

You can also directly pass in your access key id, secret and region.

  • It's recommended not to hard-code credentials inside an application. Use this method only for small personal scripts or for testing purposes.
var dynogels = require('dynogels');
dynogels.AWS.config.update({accessKeyId: 'AKID', secretAccessKey: 'SECRET', region: "REGION"});

Currently the following region codes are available in Amazon:

| Code | Name | | -------------- | ------------------------ | | ap-northeast-1 | Asia Pacific (Tokyo) | | ap-southeast-1 | Asia Pacific (Singapore) | | ap-southeast-2 | Asia Pacific (Sydney) | | eu-central-1 | EU (Frankfurt) | | eu-west-1 | EU (Ireland) | | sa-east-1 | South America (Sao Paulo)| | us-east-1 | US East (N. Virginia) | | us-west-1 | US West (N. California) | | us-west-2 | US West (Oregon) |

Define a Model

Models are defined through the toplevel define method.

var Account = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey : 'email',

  // add the timestamp attributes (updatedAt, createdAt)
  timestamps : true,

  schema : {
    email   : Joi.string().email(),
    name    : Joi.string(),
    age     : Joi.number(),
    roles   : dynogels.types.stringSet(),
    settings : {
      nickname      : Joi.string(),
      acceptedTerms : Joi.boolean().default(false)
    }
  }
});

Models can also be defined with hash and range keys.

var BlogPost = dynogels.define('BlogPost', {
  hashKey : 'email',
  rangeKey : ‘title’,
  schema : {
    email   : Joi.string().email(),
    title   : Joi.string(),
    content : Joi.binary(),
    tags   : dynogels.types.stringSet(),
  }
});

You can pass through validation options to Joi like so:

var BlogPost = dynogels.define('BlogPost', {
  hashKey : 'email',
  rangeKey : 'title',
  schema : {
    email   : Joi.string().email(),
    title   : Joi.string()
  },
  validation: {
    // allow properties not defined in the schema
    allowUnknown: true
  }
});

Create Tables for all defined models

dynogels.createTables(function(err) {
  if (err) {
    console.log('Error creating tables: ', err);
  } else {
    console.log('Tables has been created');
  }
});

When creating tables you can pass specific throughput settings or stream specification for any defined models.

dynogels.createTables({
  'BlogPost': {readCapacity: 5, writeCapacity: 10},
  'Account': {
    readCapacity: 20, 
    writeCapacity: 4, 
    streamSpecification: { 
      streamEnabled: true, 
      streamViewType: 'NEW_IMAGE' 
    }
  }
}, function(err) {
  if (err) {
    console.log('Error creating tables: ', err);
  } else {
    console.log('Tables has been created');
  }
});

You can also pass operational options using the $dynogels key:

  • pollingInterval: When creating a table, Dynogels must poll the DynamoDB server to detect when table creation has completed. This option specifies the minimum poll interval, in milliseconds. (Default: 1000)
dynogels.createTables({
  $dynogels: { pollingInterval: 100 }
}, function(err) {
  if (err) {
    console.log('Error creating tables: ', err);
  } else {
    console.log('Tables has been created');
  }
});

Delete Table

BlogPost.deleteTable(function(err) {
  if (err) {
    console.log('Error deleting table: ', err);
  } else {
    console.log('Table has been deleted');
  }
});

Schema Types

Vogels provides the following schema types:

  • String
  • Number
  • StringSet
  • NumberSet
  • Boolean
  • Date
  • UUID
  • TimeUUID

UUID

UUIDs can be declared for any attributes, including hash and range keys. By Default, the uuid will be automatically generated when attempting to create the model in DynamoDB.

var Tweet = dynogels.define('Tweet', {
  hashKey : 'TweetID',
  timestamps : true,
  schema : {
    TweetID : dynogels.types.uuid(),
    content : Joi.string(),
  }
});

Configuration

You can configure dynogels to automatically add createdAt and updatedAt timestamp attributes when saving and updating a model. updatedAt will only be set when updating a record and will not be set on initial creation of the model.

var Account = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey : 'email',

  // add the timestamp attributes (updatedAt, createdAt)
  timestamps : true,

  schema : {
    email : Joi.string().email(),
  }
});

If you want dynogels to handle timestamps, but only want some of them, or want your timestamps to be called something else, you can override each attribute individually:

var Account = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey : 'email',

  // enable timestamps support
  timestamps : true,

  // I don't want createdAt
  createdAt: false,

  // I want updatedAt to actually be called updateTimestamp
  updatedAt: 'updateTimestamp'

  schema : {
    email : Joi.string().email(),
  }
});

You can override the table name the model will use.

var Event = dynogels.define('Event', {
  hashKey : 'name',
  schema : {
    name : Joi.string(),
    total : Joi.number()
  },

  tableName: 'deviceEvents'
});

if you set the tableName to a function, dynogels will use the result of the function as the active table to use. Useful for storing time series data.

var Event = dynogels.define('Event', {
  hashKey : 'name',
  schema : {
    name : Joi.string(),
    total : Joi.number()
  },

  // store monthly event data
  tableName: function () {
    var d = new Date();
    return ['events', d.getFullYear(), d.getMonth() + 1].join('_');
  }
});

After you've defined your model you can configure the table name to use. By default, the table name used will be the lowercased and pluralized version of the name you provided when defining the model.

Account.config({tableName: 'AccountsTable'});

You can also pass in a custom instance of the aws-sdk DynamoDB client

var dynamodb = new AWS.DynamoDB();
Account.config({dynamodb: dynamodb});

// or globally use custom DynamoDB instance
// all defined models will now use this driver
dynogels.dynamoDriver(dynamodb);

Saving Models to DynamoDB

With your models defined, we can start saving them to DynamoDB.

Account.create({email: '[email protected]', name: 'Foo Bar', age: 21}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('created account in DynamoDB', acc.get('email'));
});

You can also first instantiate a model and then save it.

var acc = new Account({email: '[email protected]', name: 'Test Example'});
acc.save(function (err) {
  console.log('created account in DynamoDB', acc.get('email'));
});

Saving models that require range and hashkeys are identical to ones with only hashkeys.

BlogPost.create({
  email: '[email protected]',
  title: 'Expanding the Cloud',
  content: 'Today, we are excited to announce the limited preview...'
  }, function (err, post) {
    console.log('created blog post', post.get('title'));
  });

Pass an array of items and they will be saved in parallel to DynamoDB.

var item1 = {email: '[email protected]', name: 'Foo 1', age: 10};
var item2 = {email: '[email protected]', name: 'Foo 2', age: 20};
var item3 = {email: '[email protected]', name: 'Foo 3', age: 30};

Account.create([item1, item2, item3], function (err, acccounts) {
  console.log('created 3 accounts in DynamoDB', accounts);
});

Use expressions api to do conditional writes

  var params = {};
  params.ConditionExpression = '#i <> :x';
  params.ExpressionAttributeNames = {'#i' : 'id'};
  params.ExpressionAttributeValues = {':x' : 123};

  User.create({id : 123, name : 'Kurt Warner' }, params, function (error, acc) { ... });

Use the overwrite option to prevent over writing of existing records.

  • By default overwrite is set to true, allowing create operations to overwrite existing records
  // setting overwrite to false will generate
  // the same Condition Expression as in the previous example
  User.create({id : 123, name : 'Kurt Warner' }, {overwrite : false}, function (error, acc) { ... });

Updating

When updating a model the hash and range key attributes must be given, all other attributes are optional

// update the name of the [email protected] account
Account.update({email: '[email protected]', name: 'Bar Tester'}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('update account', acc.get('name'));
});

Model.update accepts options to pass to DynamoDB when making the updateItem request

Account.update({email: '[email protected]', name: 'Bar Tester'}, {ReturnValues: 'ALL_OLD'}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('update account', acc.get('name')); // prints the old account name
});

// Only update the account if the current age of the account is 22
Account.update({email: '[email protected]', name: 'Bar Tester'}, {expected: {age: 22}}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('update account', acc.get('name'));
});

// setting an attribute to null will delete the attribute from DynamoDB
Account.update({email: '[email protected]', age: null}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('update account', acc.get('age')); // prints null
});

To ensure that an item exists before updating, use the expected parameter to check the existence of the hash key. The hash key must exist for every DynamoDB item. This will return an error if the item does not exist.

Account.update(
  { email: '[email protected]', name: 'FooBar Testers' },
  { expected: { email: { Exists: true } } },
  (err, acc) => {
    console.log(acc.get('name')); // FooBar Testers
  }
);

Account.update(
  { email: '[email protected]', name: 'Bar Tester' },
  { expected: { email: { Exists: true } } },
  (err, acc) => {
    console.log(err); // Condition Expression failed: no Account with that hash key
  }
);

This is essentially short-hand for:

var params = {};
    params.ConditionExpression = 'attribute_exists(#hashKey)';
    params.ExpressionAttributeNames = { '#hashKey' : 'email' };

You can also pass what action to perform when updating a given attribute Use $add to increment or decrement numbers and add values to sets

Account.update({email : '[email protected]', age : {$add : 1}}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('incremented age by 1', acc.get('age'));
});

BlogPost.update({
  email : '[email protected]',
  title : 'Expanding the Cloud',
  tags  : {$add : 'cloud'}
}, function (err, post) {
  console.log('added single tag to blog post', post.get('tags'));
});

BlogPost.update({
  email : '[email protected]',
  title : 'Expanding the Cloud',
  tags  : {$add : ['cloud', 'dynamodb']}
}, function (err, post) {
  console.log('added tags to blog post', post.get('tags'));
});

$del will remove values from a given set

BlogPost.update({
  email : '[email protected]',
  title : 'Expanding the Cloud',
  tags  : {$del : 'cloud'}
}, function (err, post) {
  console.log('removed cloud tag from blog post', post.get('tags'));
});

BlogPost.update({
  email : '[email protected]',
  title : 'Expanding the Cloud',
  tags  : {$del : ['aws', 'node']}
}, function (err, post) {
  console.log('removed multiple tags', post.get('tags'));
});

Use the expressions api to update nested documents

var params = {};
  params.UpdateExpression = 'SET #year = #year + :inc, #dir.titles = list_append(#dir.titles, :title), #act[0].firstName = :firstName ADD tags :tag';
  params.ConditionExpression = '#year = :current';
  params.ExpressionAttributeNames = {
    '#year' : 'releaseYear',
    '#dir' : 'director',
    '#act' : 'actors'
  };

  params.ExpressionAttributeValues = {
    ':inc' : 1,
    ':current' : 2001,
    ':title' : ['The Man'],
    ':firstName' : 'Rob',
    ':tag' : dynogels.Set(['Sports', 'Horror'], 'S')
  };

Movie.update({title : 'Movie 0', description : 'This is a description'}, params, function (err, mov) {});

Deleting

You delete items in DynamoDB using the hashkey of model If your model uses both a hash and range key, then both need to be provided

Account.destroy('[email protected]', function (err) {
  console.log('account deleted');
});

// Destroy model using hash and range key
BlogPost.destroy('[email protected]', 'Hello World!', function (err) {
  console.log('post deleted')
});

BlogPost.destroy({email: '[email protected]', title: 'Another Post'}, function (err) {
  console.log('another post deleted')
});

Model.destroy accepts options to pass to DynamoDB when making the deleteItem request

Account.destroy('[email protected]', {ReturnValues: 'ALL_OLD'}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('account deleted');
  console.log('deleted account name', acc.get('name'));
});

Account.destroy('[email protected]', {expected: {age: 22}}, function (err) {
  console.log('account deleted if the age was 22');
});

Use expression apis to perform conditional deletes

var params = {};
params.ConditionExpression = '#v = :x';
params.ExpressionAttributeNames = {'#v' : 'version'};
params.ExpressionAttributeValues = {':x' : '2'};

User.destroy({id : 123}, params, function (err, acc) {});

Loading models from DynamoDB

The simpliest way to get an item from DynamoDB is by hashkey.

Account.get('[email protected]', function (err, acc) {
  console.log('got account', acc.get('email'));
});

Perform the same get request, but this time peform a consistent read.

Account.get('[email protected]', {ConsistentRead: true}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('got account', acc.get('email'));
});

Model.get accepts any options that DynamoDB getItem request supports. For example:

Account.get('[email protected]', {ConsistentRead: true, AttributesToGet : ['name','age']}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('got account', acc.get('email'))
  console.log(acc.get('name'));
  console.log(acc.get('age'));
  console.log(acc.get('email')); // prints null
});

Get a model using hash and range key.

// load up blog post written by Werner, titled DynamoDB Keeps Getting Better and cheaper
BlogPost.get('[email protected]', 'dynamodb-keeps-getting-better-and-cheaper', function (err, post) {
  console.log('loaded post by range and hash key', post.get('content'));
});

Model.get also supports passing an object which contains hash and range key attributes to load up a model

BlogPost.get({email: '[email protected]', title: 'Expanding the Cloud'}, function (err, post) {
  console.log('loded post', post.get('content'));
});

Use expressions api to select which attributes you want returned

  User.get({ id : '123456789'},{ ProjectionExpression : 'email, age, settings.nickname' }, function (err, acc) {});

Query

For models that use hash and range keys Vogels provides a flexible and chainable query api

// query for blog posts by [email protected]
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .exec(callback);

// same as above, but load all results
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .loadAll()
  .exec(callback);

// only load the first 5 posts by werner
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .limit(5)
  .exec(callback);

// query for posts by werner where the tile begins with 'Expanding'
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').beginsWith('Expanding')
  .exec(callback);
  
// return only the count of documents that begin with the title Expanding
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').beginsWith('Expanding')
  .select('COUNT')
  .exec(callback);

// query the first 10 posts by [email protected] but only return
// the title and content from posts where the title starts with 'Expanding'
// WARNING: See notes below on the implementation of limit in DynamoDB
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').beginsWith('Expanding')
  .attributes(['title', 'content'])
  .limit(10)
  .exec(callback);

// sorting by title ascending
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .ascending()
  .exec(callback)

// sorting by title descending
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .descending()
  .exec(callback)

// All query options are chainable
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').gt('Expanding')
  .attributes(['title', 'content'])
  .limit(10)
  .ascending()
  .loadAll()
  .exec(callback);

// Traversing Map Data Types
Account
  .query('[email protected]')
  .filter('settings.acceptedTerms').equals(true)
  .exec(callback);

Warning, limit is applied first before the where filter. The limit value limits the scanned count, not the number of returned items. See #12

Vogels supports all the possible KeyConditions that DynamoDB currently supports.

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').equals('Expanding')
  .exec();

// less than equals
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').lte('Expanding')
  .exec();

// less than
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').lt('Expanding')
  .exec();

// greater than
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').gt('Expanding')
  .exec();

// greater than equals
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').gte('Expanding')
  .exec();

// attribute doesn't exist
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').null()
  .exec();

// attribute exists
BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').exists()
  .exec();

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').beginsWith('Expanding')
  .exec();

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').between('[email protected]', '[email protected]')
  .exec();

Query Filters allow you to further filter results on non-key attributes.

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .where('title').equals('Expanding')
  .filter('tags').contains('cloud')
  .exec();

Expression Filters also allow you to further filter results on non-key attributes.

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .filterExpression('#title < :t')
  .expressionAttributeValues({ ':t' : 'Expanding' })
  .expressionAttributeNames({ '#title' : 'title'})
  .projectionExpression('#title, tag')
  .exec();

See the queryFilter.js example for more examples of using query filters

Global Indexes

First, define a model with a global secondary index.

var GameScore = dynogels.define('GameScore', {
  hashKey : 'userId',
  rangeKey : 'gameTitle',
  schema : {
    userId           : Joi.string(),
    gameTitle        : Joi.string(),
    topScore         : Joi.number(),
    topScoreDateTime : Joi.date(),
    wins             : Joi.number(),
    losses           : Joi.number()
  },
  indexes : [{
    hashKey : 'gameTitle', rangeKey : 'topScore', name : 'GameTitleIndex', type : 'global'
  }]
});

Now we can query against the global index

GameScore
  .query('Galaxy Invaders')
  .usingIndex('GameTitleIndex')
  .descending()
  .exec(callback);

When can also configure the attributes projected into the index. By default all attributes will be projected when no Projection pramater is present

var GameScore = dynogels.define('GameScore', {
  hashKey : 'userId',
  rangeKey : 'gameTitle',
  schema : {
    userId           : Joi.string(),
    gameTitle        : Joi.string(),
    topScore         : Joi.number(),
    topScoreDateTime : Joi.date(),
    wins             : Joi.number(),
    losses           : Joi.number()
  },
  indexes : [{
    hashKey : 'gameTitle',
    rangeKey : 'topScore',
    name : 'GameTitleIndex',
    type : 'global',
    projection: { NonKeyAttributes: [ 'wins' ], ProjectionType: 'INCLUDE' } //optional, defaults to ALL

  }]
});

Filter items against the configured rangekey for the global index.

GameScore
  .query('Galaxy Invaders')
  .usingIndex('GameTitleIndex')
  .where('topScore').gt(1000)
  .descending()
  .exec(function (err, data) {
    console.log(_.map(data.Items, JSON.stringify));
  });

Local Secondary Indexes

First, define a model using a local secondary index

var BlogPost = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey : 'email',
  rangeKey : 'title',
  schema : {
    email             : Joi.string().email(),
    title             : Joi.string(),
    content           : Joi.binary(),
    PublishedDateTime : Joi.date()
  },

  indexes : [{
    hashKey : 'email', rangeKey : 'PublishedDateTime', type : 'local', name : 'PublishedIndex'
  }]
});

Now we can query for blog posts using the secondary index

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .usingIndex('PublishedIndex')
  .descending()
  .exec(callback);

Could also query for published posts, but this time return oldest first

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .usingIndex('PublishedIndex')
  .ascending()
  .exec(callback);

Finally lets load all published posts sorted by publish date

BlogPost
  .query('[email protected]')
  .usingIndex('PublishedIndex')
  .descending()
  .loadAll()
  .exec(callback);

Scan

Vogels provides a flexible and chainable api for scanning over all your items This api is very similar to the query api.

// scan all accounts, returning the first page or results
Account.scan().exec(callback);

// scan all accounts, this time loading all results
// note this will potentially make several calls to DynamoDB
// in order to load all results
Account
  .scan()
  .loadAll()
  .exec(callback);

// Load 20 accounts
Account
  .scan()
  .limit(20)
  .exec();

// Load All accounts, 20 at a time per request
Account
  .scan()
  .limit(20)
  .loadAll()
  .exec();

// Load accounts which match a filter
// only return email and created attributes
// and return back the consumed capacity the request took
Account
  .scan()
  .where('email').gte('[email protected]')
  .attributes(['email','created'])
  .returnConsumedCapacity()
  .exec();

// Load All accounts, if settings.acceptedTerms is true
Account
  .scan()
  .where('settings.acceptedTerms').equals(true)
  .exec();

// Returns number of matching accounts, rather than the matching accounts themselves
Account
  .scan()
  .where('age').gte(21)
  .select('COUNT')
  .exec();

// Start scan using start key
Account
  .scan()
  .where('age').notNull()
  .startKey('[email protected]')
  .exec()

Vogels supports all the possible Scan Filters that DynamoDB currently supports.

// equals
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').equals('Werner')
  .exec();

// not equals
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').ne('Werner')
  .exec();

// less than equals
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').lte('Werner')
  .exec();

// less than
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').lt('Werner')
  .exec();

// greater than equals
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').gte('Werner')
  .exec();

// greater than
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').gt('Werner')
  .exec();

// name attribute doesn't exist
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').null()
  .exec();

// name attribute exists
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').notNull()
  .exec();

// contains
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').contains('ner')
  .exec();

// not contains
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').notContains('ner')
  .exec();

// in
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').in(['[email protected]', '[email protected]'])
  .exec();

// begins with
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').beginsWith('Werner')
  .exec();

// between
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').between('Bar', 'Foo')
  .exec();

// multiple filters
Account
  .scan()
  .where('name').equals('Werner')
  .where('age').notNull()
  .exec();

You can also use the new expressions api when filtering scans

Parallel Scan

Parallel scans increase the throughput of your table scans. The parallel scan operation is identical to the scan api. The only difference is you must provide the total number of segments

Caution you can easily consume all your provisioned throughput with this api

var totalSegments = 8;

Account.parallelScan(totalSegments)
  .where('age').gte(18)
  .attributes('age')
  .exec(callback);

// Load All accounts
Account
  .parallelScan(totalSegments)
  .exec()

Batch Get Items

Model.getItems allows you to load multiple models with a single request to DynamoDB.

DynamoDB limits the number of items you can get to 100 or 1MB of data for a single request. Vogels automatically handles splitting up into multiple requests to load all items.

Account.getItems(['[email protected]','[email protected]', '[email protected]'], function (err, accounts) {
  console.log('loaded ' + accounts.length + ' accounts'); // prints loaded 3 accounts
});

// For models with range keys you must pass in objects of hash and range key attributes
var postKey1 = {email : '[email protected]', title : 'Hello World!'};
var postKey2 = {email : '[email protected]', title : 'Another Post'};

BlogPost.getItems([postKey1, postKey2], function (err, posts) {
  console.log('loaded posts');
});

Model.getItems accepts options which will be passed to DynamoDB when making the batchGetItem request

// Get both accounts, using a consistent read
Account.getItems(['[email protected]','[email protected]'], {ConsistentRead: true}, function (err, accounts) {
  console.log('loaded ' + accounts.length + ' accounts'); // prints loaded 2 accounts
});

Streaming api

dynogels supports a basic streaming api in addition to the callback api for query, scan, and parallelScan operations.

var stream = Account.parallelScan(4).exec();

stream.on('readable', function () {
  console.log('single parallel scan response', stream.read());
});

stream.on('end', function () {
  console.log('Parallel scan of accounts finished');
});

var querystream = BlogPost.query('[email protected]').loadAll().exec();

querystream.on('readable', function () {
  console.log('single query response', stream.read());
});

querystream.on('end', function () {
  console.log('query for blog posts finished');
});

Dynamic Table Names

dynogels supports dynamic table names, useful for storing time series data.

var Event = dynogels.define('Event', {
  hashKey : 'name',
  schema : {
    name : Joi.string(),
    total : Joi.number()
  },

  // store monthly event data
  tableName: function () {
    var d = new Date();
    return ['events', d.getFullYear(), d.getMonth() + 1].join('_');
  }
});

Logging

A logger that implements info and warn methods (e.g Bunyan or Winston) can be provided to either dynogels itself or individual models:

const logger = require('winston');
logger.level = 'warn';

dynogels.log = logger;  // enabled WARN log level on all tables
const accountLogger = require('winston');
accountLogger.level = 'info';

var Account = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey: 'email',
  log: accountLogger
}); // INFO level on account table

Examples

var dynogels = require('dynogels');

var Account = dynogels.define('Account', {
  hashKey : 'email',

  // add the timestamp attributes (updatedAt, createdAt)
  timestamps : true,

  schema : {
    email   : Joi.string().email(),
    name    : Joi.string().required(),
    age     : Joi.number(),
  }
});

Account.create({email: '[email protected]', name : 'Test Account'}, function (err, acc) {
  console.log('created account at', acc.get('created')); // prints created Date

  acc.set({age: 22});

  acc.update(function (err) {
    console.log('updated account age');
  });

});

See the examples for more working sample code.
