Efficient data fetching



ha-store Node Build Status Dependencies Status


HA-store is a generic wrapper for your data queries, it features:

  • Smart TLRU cache for 'hot' information
  • Request coalescing and batching (solves the Thundering Herd problem)
  • Insightful stats and events
  • Lightweight, configurable, battle-tested

Installing

npm install ha-store

Usage

// Create your store
const store = require('ha-store');
const itemStore = store({
  resolver: getItems,
  delimiter: ['language']
});

// Define your resolver
function getItems(ids, params, contexts) {
  // Ids will be a list of all the unique requested items
  // Params will be the parameters for the request, which must be declared in the `delimiter` config of the store
  // Contexts will be the list of originating context information

  // Now perform some exensive network call or database lookup...

  // Then, respond with your data formatted into this formats:
  // { '123': { language: 'fr', name: 'fred' } }
}

// Now to use your store
itemStore.get('123', { language: 'fr' }, { requestId: '123' })
  .then(item => /* The item you requested */);

// You can even ask for more than one item at a time
itemStore.getMany(['123', '456'], { language: 'en' }, { requestId: '123' })
  .then(items => /* All the items you requested, in Promise.allSettled fashion */);

Options

Name Required Default Description
resolver true - The method to wrap, and how to interpret the returned data. Uses the format <function(ids, params)>
delimiter false [] The list of parameters that, when passed, generate unique results. Ex: 'language', 'view', 'fields', 'country'. These will generate different combinations of cache keys.
store false null A custom store for the data, like ha-store-redis.
cache false
{
  limit: 5000,
  ttl: 300000
}
Caching options for the data - limit - the maximum number of records, and ttl - time to live for a record in milliseconds.
batch false
{
  delay: 50,
  limit: 100
}
Batching options for the requests

*All options are in (ms)

Monitoring and events

HA-store emits events to track cache hits, miss and outbound requests.

Event Format Description
cacheHit <number> When the requested item is present in the microcache, or is already being fetched. Prevents another request from being created.
cacheMiss <number> When the requested item not cached or coalesced and must be fetched.
coalescedHit <number> When a record query successfully hooks to the promise of the same record in transit.
query <object> When a batch of requests is about to be sent, gives the detail of the query and what triggered it.
queryFailed <object> Indicates that the batch has failed. Retry policy will dictate if it should be re-attempted.
querySuccess <object> Indicates that the batch request was successful.

You may also want to track the amount of contexts and records stored via the size method.
