Factory Girl

port features from factory_girl in rails to nodejs

Installation

Node.js:

npm install 'factory_girl'

Usage

Define factory

var FactoryGirl = require('factory_girl'); // for nodejs

FactoryGirl.define('user', function() {
    this.id = Math.random()*101|0;
    this.title = 'That\'s awesome day';
    this.emotion = 'happy';
})

Using factories

    user = FactoryGirl.create('user'); // create instance user
    user.attributes(); // => {id: 1, title: 'That\'s awesome day', emotion: 'happy'}

It's possible to override the defined attributes by passing a json:

    user = FactoryGirl.create('user', {id: 2});
    user.attributes(); // => {id: 2, ....}
    FactoryGirl.attributesFor('user') // => {id: 1, ...}
    FactoryGirl.defined('user') // => true

Aliases

FactoryGirl.define('user', {alias: 'doctor'}, function () {
    // same above
})

FactorGirl.create('user') is equal to FactoryGirl.create('doctor')

another thing is you can pass to array to alias {alias: ['doctor', 'patient']

Inheritance

FactorlGirl.define('doctor', {inherit: 'user'}, function() {
    this.id = 2;
    this.label = 'Dr';
})

var doctor = Factory.create('doctor');
doctor.attributes() // => {id: 2, title: 'That\'s awesome day', emotion: 'happy', label: 'Dr'}

Association

FactoryGirl.define('profile', function() {
    this.id = 2;
    this.label = 'Dr';
    this.belongTo('user');
})

FactoryGirl.define('place', function() {
    this.id = 2;
    this.label = 'New York';
    this.hasOne('user');
})

var profile = FactoryGirl.create('profile');
profile.attributes() // => {label: 'Dr'};
profile.toJSON() // => {id: 2, label: 'Dr', user_id: 1, user: {id: 1, title: 'That\'s awesome day', emotion: 'happy'}}

var place = FactoryGirl.create('place');
profile.toJSON() // => {id: 2, label: 'New York', user: {id: 1, place_id: 2, ...}}

Create Multi Object

FactoryGirl.createLists('user') => [{id: 1, ...}, {id: 23, ....}]
