    pgprom

    Easiest and safest way to use postgres abusing template strings

    This is a tiny library that uses pg under the hood. The aim of this library is to create the easiest and safest way to run queries abusing the new template strings available in ES2015. Template strings can be tagged and the tagging function is responsible of concatenating the raw portions of the string with the interpolated values and it can also return anything, not only strings. pgprom uses these two capabilities to:

    • Automatically build a SQL with all the interpolated values replaced with placeholders and thus avoiding any SQL injection
    • Return a promise that will contain the query result

    Installing

    npm install pgprom --save

    Usage

    Instantiating

    const sql = require('pgprom')(process.env.DATABASE_URL)

    query()

    This method returns all the information provided by pg when running SQL.

    const status = 'open'
    const interval = '1 year'
    sql.query`SELECT * FROM issues WHERE status=${status} AND created_at > NOW() interval ${interval}`
      .then((result) => {
        console.log('rows', result.rows)
        console.log('rowCount', result.rowCount)
        // etc.
      })

    find()

    This method is like .query() but it only returns the array of rows.

    const status = 'open'
    const interval = '1 year'
    sql.find`SELECT * FROM issues WHERE status=${status} AND created_at > NOW() interval ${interval}`
      .then((rows) => {
        console.log('rows', rows)
      })

    findOne()

    This method is like .find() but it only returns the first returned row.

    const status = 'open'
    const interval = '1 year'
    sql.findOne`SELECT * FROM issues WHERE status=${status} AND created_at > NOW() interval ${interval} ORDER BY created_at ASC LIMIT 1`
      .then((row) => {
        console.log('row', row)
      })

    execute()

    This method executes the SQL and returns the number of affected rows.

    const date = ...
    sql.execute`DELETE FROM issues WHERE created_at < ${date}`
      .then((rowCount) => {
        console.log('affected rows', rowCount)
      })

    Dynamic queries

    Interpolated values are perfecto for... values :) But if you want to create dynamic SQL queries there are things you don't want to escape. For example this doesn't work:

    const func = something ? 'NOW' : 'VERSION'
    sql.findOne`SELECT ${func}()`

    This doesn't work because the function name will be escaped. So you need to use sql.raw() like this:

    const func = something ? 'NOW' : 'VERSION'
    sql.findOne`SELECT ${sql.raw(func)}()`

    Now pgprom won't treat func as a value to be escaped. It will just concatenate the value to the rest of the SQL query.

    Install
