TrueVault Client Library for Node.js

An unofficial JavaScript implementation of the TrueVault REST API.

TrueVault is a secure "backend-as-a-service" content storage solution for HIPAA compliance.

Installing

Use npm to install into your Node.js. Simply include "truevaultjs" as a dependency or type the following into a terminal window:

npm install truevaultjs

Example


var TrueVault = require('truevaultjs');

var client = new TrueVault('secure_api_key');

var mydoc = { secure: 'data', isPHI: true };
client.json.create(vaultId,mydoc,function(err,result) {
    console.log(result.document_id);
});

mydoc.newField = 12345;
client.json.update(vaultId,mydoc,function(err) {});

client.json.get(vaultId,documentId,function(err,document) {
    assert.equal(mydoc,document);
});

client.json.del(vaultId,documentId,function(err) {});

API

The API is designed to closely mirror the TrueVault REST API. The client handles authentication headers as well as Base64 encoding and decoding, so all you need to do is plug in your own API key (from the TrueVault Users dashboard), vault ID (also created and managed in the dashboard), and content.

Initialization


var TrueVault = require('truevaultjs');
var client = new TrueVault('secure_api_key');   // replace with your own

JSON (Document) Store


client.json.create(vaultId,document,callback)
client.json.update(vaultId,documentId,document,callback)
client.json.del(vaultId,documentId,callback)
client.json.get(vaultId,documentId,callback)

BLOB Store


client.blob.create(vaultId,document,callback)
client.blob.update(vaultId,documentId,blob,callback)
client.blob.del(vaultId,documentId,callback)
client.blob.get(vaultId,documentId,callback)

Schema Store


client.json.create(vaultId,document,callback)
client.json.update(vaultId,documentId,document,callback)
client.json.del(vaultId,documentId,callback)
client.json.get(vaultId,documentId,callback)
client.json.all(vaultId,callback)

Search Engine

NOTE: This hasn't been fully implemented yet, so the API is likely to change.


client.json.find(vaultId,query,callback)

Callbacks and Promises

All methods can take a callback as the final argument. The callback signature follows the typical Node.js form:


var callback = function(err,result) {}
client.json.create('some-vault-id',{ this: 'is', my: 'document' }, callback);

If a callback is not provided, methods will return a promise that will be fulfilled as soon as the asynchronous call is completed:


client.json
    .create('some-vault-id'),{ this: 'is', my: 'document' })
    .then(function(result) {
        // promise resolved, i.e. success
    }, function(reason) {
        // promise rejected, i.e. failure
    })
    // ...promise chain...

(For more information, check out the Promises/A+ spec and the documentation for the excellent Q library).
