hmpo-cached-model

Cached polling model.

Poll an API at a given interval and save the data to a data storoe such as redis. Multiple nodes can synchronise by sharing the redis instance and key.

Usage

const HmpoCachedModel = require('hmpo-cached-model');

let redisFactory = {
    getClient() {
        return redisInstance;
    }
}

let model = new HmpoCachedModel(
    { // optional seed data
        foo: 'bar',
        boo: 'baz'
    },
    { // options
        url: 'http://example.com/api',
        key: 'root-key',
        store: redisFactory,
        storeInterval: 1000,
        apiInterval: 2000
    }
);

// start polling
model.start();


let data = model.get('data');


// stop polling
countriesLib.stop();

If the API returns an object, all keys are saved to the model, otherwise the data from the API is saved to the data key.

Extend and override parse() to change the way the incomming data from the API is processed.
