Monologue - Streamlined query building

Install

npm install monologue

Usage

This was ported from a PHP library, and uses named parameters for binding (PDO library). Some mysql packages in node support this, see their documentation for examples. This package will continue to evolve and support other methods in the future.

var monologue = require('monologue');

// Less than basic SELECT statement


// call the SQL wrappers in any order, see below: where, group, where, order
var mono = monologue().select( "*", "users")
    .where( { "id": [1,2,3,4,5,6] } ) // alternative to where("id").in([...])
    .where( 'date_time' ).between( '2012-09-12', '2013-01-20')
    .group( 'type' )
    .where( "name", "OR" ).like("ro%en") // out of order, also passing "OR" as separator
    .order( "id" )
    .limit( '300', 1000 )
    .query();

console.log( mono.sql )
// output: SELECT * FROM users WHERE id IN (:i_1,:i_2,:i_3,:i_4,:i_5,:i_6) AND username = :mono_someguy AND email = :mono_someguyexampleorg OR email = :mono_someguygmailcom AND date BETWEEN :b_20120912 AND :b_20130121 AND name LIKE :l_roen OR name LIKE :l_bb GROUP BY type ASC ORDER BY id ASC LIMIT 1000, 300
