Make

Easily create rows for any table

Built for Sequelize v3 and AVA.

Install

npm install --save-dev @mishguru/make

Usage

Manual

import { make } from '@mishguru/make'
 
import db from './db'
 
const context = {}
 
const task = await make({
  context,
  table: db.Task,
  attributes: {
    // optionally set custom attributes
    name: 'task with this specific name'
  }
})

Transaction support

If the test context has a Sequalize transaction object under the transaction key, make will automatically use it when creating entities in the database. While inside an active transaction, created entities will only be accessible under that transaction as well.

With AVA Context

If you are using AVA, then you can use withMake -- which automatically injects itself into the test context.

import anyTest, { TestInterface } from 'ava'
import { withMake, WithMakeFn } from '@mishguru/make'
 
const test = anyTest as TestInterface<{ make: WithMakeFn }>
 
withMake({ test })
 
test('my test', async (t) => {
  const { make } = t.context
 
  const task = make(db.Task)
 
  // create multiple tasks
  const tasks = [
    await make(db.Task),
    await make(db.Task),
    await make(db.Task),
  ])
 
  // custom attributes
  const specialTask = make(db.Task, { name: 'special' })
})

Mock Data

When creating a row with make, it will fill it with appropriate fake data.

If your test requires a specific value to be a in a column, for example, that url = 'https://mish.guru', then you can pass custom fields you want to use as second argument.

// make
const content = await make({
  context: {},
  table: db.Content,
  attributes: { url: 'https://mish.guru' }
})
 
// withMake
const content = await t.context.make(db.Content, { url: 'https://mish.guru' })

Relations

This is where make shines. It automatically detects foreign keys and will recursively create related tables for you.

For example, imagine you had a database with the following entities:

[Task] >---| [Project] >---| [User]

Task.belongsTo(Project)
Project.belongsTo(User)

With make, you can create a Task in one line, and don't need to worry about setting up a User and a Project.

const context = {}
const task = await make({ context, table: db.Task })
 
console.log(context)
// { task: {...}, project: {...}, user: {...} }

Full Example

import Sequelize from 'sequelize'
import { make } from '@mishguru/make'
 
const sequelize = new Sequelize(...)
 
const Project = sequelize.define('project', {
  title: Sequelize.STRING,
  description: Sequelize.TEXT
})
 
const Task = sequelize.define('task', {
  title: Sequelize.STRING,
  description: Sequelize.TEXT,
  deadline: Sequelize.DATE,
})
 
Task.belongsTo(Project)
 
const start = async () => {
  const context = {}
 
  const task = await make({
    context,
    table: Task,
    attributes: {
      title: 'a custom title'
    }
  })
 
  console.log(context)
  /*
  {
    project: {
      id: 1,
      title: 'District Granite Wooden',
      description: 'e-markets Bedfordshire'
    },
    task: {
      id: 1,
      title: 'a custom title',
      description: 'Massachusetts',
      deadline: 2019-05-05T17:08:06.435Z,
      projectId: 1
    }
  }*/
 
  console.log(task === context.task)
  // true
}
 
start().catch(console.error)
