Venture API Plant

An event-driven microservice framework powering up Venture API system.


 npm i @venture-api/plant


Create a plant:

const Plant = require('@venture-api/plant');
const pg = require('pg'); 
const pack = require('./package.json');

async function main() {
   const plant = new Plant('plantName', options, pack);
   await plant.ready();
   const {username, password, host, name} = config.pg;
   const pool = new pg.Pool({
       user: username,
       database: name,
   plant.set('pg', pool);

return main();

Create a module's method (modules/<moduleName>/<methodName>.js):

module.exports = async function (someData) {
   const {plant, logger} = this;  // plant instance and the logger
   logger.debug('creating new record', someData);
   const someModule = plant.module('someModule'); // load other module
   const pool = plant.get('pg');  // get pg instance from plant
   const query = `INSERT INTO ... RETURNING *`;
   const result = await pool.query(query);
   const newRecord = result ? result.rows[0] : null;
   if (newRecord) {
       logger.info('new record created', newRecord);
       someModule.emit('created', newRecord)
   return newRecord;

Create a subscriber (subscribers/someEntity.created.js):

module.exports = (plant, logger) => {

   const someModule = plant.module('someModule');
   const someOtherModule = plant.module('someOtherModule');
   const nats = plant.get('nats');

   someModule.on('created', async (newRecord) => {
       const {id, ...} = newRecord;
       const data = await nats.request('some.subject', {...});
       const result = await someOtherModule.method(data);
       logger.debug('some log entry...');
       const updatedRecord = await someModule.update(id, result);
       if (updatedRecord) nats.publish('record.created', updatedRecord);
