fastify-postgres v2.0.0

Fastify PostgreSQL connection plugin

fastify-postgres

Greenkeeper badge

js-standard-style Build Status

Fastify PostgreSQL connection plugin, with this you can share the same PostgreSQL connection pool in every part of your server. Under the hood the node-postgres is used, the options that you pass to register will be passed to the PostgreSQL pool builder.

Install

npm i pg fastify-postgres --save

Usage

Add it to you project with register and you are done! This plugin will add the pg namespace in your Fastify instance, with the following properties:

connect: the function to get a connection from the pool
pool: the pool instance
Client: a client constructor for a single query
query: a utility to perform a query _without_ a transaction
transact: a utility to perform multiple queries _with_ a transaction

Example:

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres'
})

fastify.get('/user/:id', (req, reply) => {
  fastify.pg.connect(onConnect)

  function onConnect (err, client, release) {
    if (err) return reply.send(err)

    client.query(
      'SELECT id, username, hash, salt FROM users WHERE id=$1', [req.params.id],
      function onResult (err, result) {
        release()
        reply.send(err || result)
      }
    )
  }
})

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

Async await is supported as well!

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres'
})

fastify.get('/user/:id', async (req, reply) => {
  const client = await fastify.pg.connect()
  const { rows } = await client.query(
    'SELECT id, username, hash, salt FROM users WHERE id=$1', [req.params.id],
  )
  client.release()
  return rows
})

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

Use of pg.query

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres'
})

fastify.get('/user/:id', (req, reply) => {
  fastify.pg.query(
    'SELECT id, username, hash, salt FROM users WHERE id=$1', [req.params.id],
    function onResult (err, result) {
      reply.send(err || result)
    }
  )
})

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

Use of pg.transact

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres'
})

fastify.post('/user/:username', (req, reply) => {
  // will return a promise, fastify will send the result automatically
  return fastify.pg.transact(async client => {
    // will resolve to an id, or reject with an error
    const id = await client.query('INSERT INTO users(username) VALUES($1) RETURNING id', [req.params.username])

    // potentially do something with id

    return id
  })
})

/* or with a transaction callback

fastify.pg.transact(client => {
    return client.query('INSERT INTO users(username) VALUES($1) RETURNING id', [req.params.username])
  },
  function onResult (err, result) {
    reply.send(err || result)
  }
})

*/

/* or with a commit callback

fastify.pg.transact((client, commit) => {
  client.query('INSERT INTO users(username) VALUES($1) RETURNING id', [req.params.username], (err, id) => {
    commit(err, id)
  });
})

*/

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

As you can see there is no need to close the client, since is done internally. Promises and async await are supported as well.

Native option

If you want to gain the maximum performances you can install pg-native, and pass native: true to the plugin options. Note: it requires PostgreSQL client libraries & tools installed, see instructions. Note: trying to use native options without successfully installation of pg-native will get a warning and fallback to regular pg module.

const fastify = require('fastify')()

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres',
  native: true
})

fastify.get('/user/:id', (req, reply) => {
  fastify.pg.query(
    'SELECT id, username, hash, salt FROM users WHERE id=$1', [req.params.id],
    function onResult (err, result) {
      reply.send(err || result)
    }
  )
})

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

pg option

If you want to provide your own pg module, for example to support packages like pg-range, you can provide an optional pg option with the patched library to use:

const fastify = require('fastify')()
const pg = require("pg");
require("pg-range").install(pg)

fastify.register(require('fastify-postgres'), {
  connectionString: 'postgres://postgres@localhost/postgres',
  pg: pg
})

fastify.get('/user/:id', (req, reply) => {
  fastify.pg.query(
    'SELECT id, username, hash, salt FROM users WHERE id=$1', [req.params.id],
    function onResult (err, result) {
      reply.send(err || result)
    }
  )
})

fastify.listen(3000, err => {
  if (err) throw err
  console.log(`server listening on ${fastify.server.address().port}`)
})

Development and Testing

First, start postgres with:

$ npm run postgres

Then you can, in another terminal, find the running docker, init the DB, then run the tests:

$ docker ps
CONTAINER ID        IMAGE                 COMMAND                  CREATED             STATUS              PORTS                    NAMES
28341f85c4cd        postgres:9.6-alpine   "docker-entrypoint.s…"   3 minutes ago       Up 3 minutes        0.0.0.0:5432->5432/tcp   jovial_shockley

$ docker exec -ti jovial_shockley /usr/local/bin/psql -d postgres -U postgres  -c 'CREATE TABLE users(id serial PRIMARY KEY, username VARCHAR (50) NOT NULL);'
CREATE TABLE

$ npm test
