@sgeb/sequelize-binary-uuid

1.0.0-1.pr3 • Public • Published

This branch offers a forked release of the original sequelize-binary-uuid repo, which seems to have become stale.

The fork is released at https://www.npmjs.com/package/@sgeb/sequelize-binary-uuid

npm install @sgeb/sequelize-binary-uuid

The fork includes the following:

  • PR #3 from the original repo: fixes a bug where binary UUIDs are truncated when transferred to the database ("fix invalid binding").

sequelize-binary-uuid

This builds upon the binary-uuid package by making it easy to implement into Sequelize.

This package provides a few important exports:

  • A BINARY type (binary(length)).
  • A BINARYUUID field creator.
  • A VIRTUALBINARYUUID field creator.
  • A withBinaryUUID preset field creator.

This package makes it easy to use binary(16) UUID's instead of CHAR(36) which is the default. It also modifies the UUID so that it is more performant when indexing which can lead to significant performance improvements over naive implementations.

Examples

Multiple examples are available in the examples folders.

Using withBinaryUUID preset (recommended)

When utilizing the preset, the model will be created with an id field which is the primaryKey and is a generated binary(16) uuid value.

In addition, the model will have a uuid virtual field which is the string version of the uuid.

import Sequelize from "sequelize";
import { withBinaryUUID } from "sequelize-binary-uuid";
 
// define sequelize...
 
const User = sequelize.define(
  "User",
  withBinaryUUID(
    {
      // any other fields here
      someKey: Sequelize.DataTypes.TEXT
    },
    {
      primaryID: "id", // default
      virtualID: "uuid", // default
      field: {
        // optionally provide extra parameters to the
        // `primaryID` binary field
        primaryKey: true
        // primaryKey: true is required to make it a
        // primaryKey!
      }
    }
  )
);

Once you have done this, you may interact with the table:

sequelize
  .sync({ force: true })
  .then(() =>
    Promise.all([
      User.create({ someKey: "one" }),
      User.create({ someKey: "two" }),
      User.create({ someKey: "three" })
    ])
  )
  .then(() => User.findAll())
  .then(users => users.map(user => user.get({ plain: true })))
  .then(console.log);
[
  {
    uuid: '8cde7820-04c1-11e9-8d40-0d6e8c185c6c',
    id: <Buffer 11 e9 04 c1 8c de 78 20 8d 40 0d 6e 8c 18 5c 6c>,
    someKey: 'one',
    createdAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z,
    updatedAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z
  },
  {
    uuid: '8cdec640-04c1-11e9-8d40-0d6e8c185c6c',
    id: <Buffer 11 e9 04 c1 8c de c6 40 8d 40 0d 6e 8c 18 5c 6c>,
    someKey: 'two',
    createdAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z,
    updatedAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z
  },
  {
    uuid: '8cdec641-04c1-11e9-8d40-0d6e8c185c6c',
    id: <Buffer 11 e9 04 c1 8c de c6 41 8d 40 0d 6e 8c 18 5c 6c>,
    someKey: 'three',
    createdAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z,
    updatedAt: 2018-12-21T01:41:35.000Z
  }
]

IMPORTANT: It is important to note here that the uuid field is VIRTUAL - this means it is NOT stored in the database and is only provided as a convenience.

Creating a Binary UUID

Using the BINARYUUID helper we can define a field as being a binary UUID. This will use a binary(16) type and will generate a uuid by default if none is provided.

import Sequelize from "sequelize";
import { BINARYUUID } from "sequelize-binary-uuid";
 
// define sequelize...
 
const User = sequelize.define("User", {
  // ... your model definition ...
  binaryUUID: BINARYUUID({
    // field params here...
    allowNull: true
  })
});

NOTE: If you set allowNull to true then a binary uuid will not be generated when the field is not provided. You will need to provide one yourself.

Creating a UUID Virtual Field

Using VIRTUALBINARYUUID will make it easy to provide a VIRTUAL field which resolves to the initial string version of the uuid for the given field.

VIRTUALBINARYUUID expects two arguments. First, the target field (the binary uuid) then the source field (the string/virtual field).

import Sequelize from "sequelize";
import { BINARYUUID, VIRTUALBINARYUUID } from "sequelize-binary-uuid";
 
// define sequelize...
 
const User = sequelize.define("User", {
  // ... your model definition ...
  binaryUUID: BINARYUUID({
    allowNull: false
  }),
  stringUUID: VIRTUALBINARYUUID("binaryUUID", "stringUUID")
});

Using the BINARY type

If you wish to construct your own binary type and/or binary UUID values, you can follow the example below.

import Sequelize from "sequelize";
import { BINARY, getBinaryUUID } from "sequelize-binary-uuid";
 
// define sequelize...
 
const User = sequelize.define("User", {
  // ... your model definition ...
  customBinaryUUID: {
    type: BINARY(16)
  }
});
 
// .. later
 
User.create({
  customBinaryUUID: getBinaryUUID()
});

Helper Exports

As a convenience, this package also re-exports some helpers from binary-uuid, as well as some helper functions.

import {
  getBinaryUUID,
  fromBinaryUUID,
  toBinaryUUID
} from "sequelize-binary-uuid";
 
const buf = getBinaryUUID();
const uuid = fromBinaryUUID();
const buf2 = toBinaryUUID(uuid);
