What is ngsi-parser?

ngsi-parser is a npm module for parsing and converting a simple JSON or value to a NSGI-compliant object


Data types suported

If value is a string, then type Text is used.
If value is a number, then type Number is used.
If value is a boolean, then type Boolean is used.
If value is Date, then DateTime is used.
If value is an object or array, then StructuredValue is used.
If value is null, then None is used.

How to Install

npm install ngsi-parser 

or

yarn add ngsi-parser

Import

ES5

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser')

ES6

	import NGSI as ngsi from 'ngsi-parser'

Entities Functions

Parse an Entity

	var entity = ngsi.parseEntity({
		id :'Room1',
		type:'Room',
		temperature : {
			value : 50 ,
			metadata : {
				frecuency: 40,
				scale: 'Celsious'
			}
		},
		dateStamp : new Date()
	})

Output

	{
		"id":"Room1",
		"type":"Room",
		"temperature":{
			"value":50,
			"type":"Number",
			"metadata":{
				"frecuency":{
					"value":40,
					"type":"Number"
				},
				"scale":{
					"value":"Celsious",
					"type":"Text"
				}
			}
		},
		"dateStamp":{
			"value":"2017-10-08T04:01:19.560Z",
			"type":"DateTime",
			"metadata":{}
		}
	}

Parse an Attribute

	var attribute = ngsi.parseAttrs({
		temperature : {
			value : 50,
			metadata :{
				frecuency : 50,
				scale: 'Fahrenheit'
			}
		}
	})

Output

	{
		"temperature":{
			"value":50,
			"type":"Number",
			"metadata":{
				"frecuency":{
					"value":50,
					"type":"Number"
				},
				"scale":{
					"value":"Fahrenheit",
					"type":"Text"
				}
			}
		}
	}

Parse a Value

	var value = ngsi.parseValue(50)

Output

	{
		 "value": 50,
		 "type": "Number",
		 "metadata": {}
	 }

Usage with ocb-sender

For more information about ocb-sender see its documentation.

Create an Entity in the ContextBroker

	//Convert a Json to Ngsi
	var entity = ngsi.parseEntity({
		id :'Room1',
		type:'Room',
		temperature : {
			value : 50 ,
			metadata : {
				frecuency: 40,
				scale: 'Celsious'
			}
		},
		dateStamp : new Date()
	})
	// Send to ContextBroker 
	cb.createEntity(entity)
	.then((result) => console.log(result))
	.catch((err) => console.log(err))

Update all the object attributes of an entity

	//Convert a Json to Ngsi
	var attribute = ngsi.parseAttrs({
		temperature : {
			value : 50
		}
	})
	// Send to ContextBroker 
	cb.updateEntityAttrs('Room1', attribute)
	.then((result) => console.log(result))
	.catch((err) => console.log(err))

Add a JSON Attribute to a NGSI entity.

	//Convert a Json to Ngsi
	var attribute = ngsi.parseAttrs({
		temperature : {
			value : 50
		}
	})
	// Send to ContextBroker 
	cb.addJSONAttributeToEntity('Room1', attribute)
	.then((result) => console.log(result))
	.catch((err) => console.log(err))

Update the JSON Object of an atttribute of the entity

	//Convert a Json to Ngsi
	var value = ngsi.parseValue(50)
	
	// Send to ContextBroker 
	cb.updateJSONAttrEntity(
		'idEntity', 'nameAttribute', value
	)
	.then((result) => console.log(result))
	.catch((err) => console.log(err))

Special Consults

Dinamic Query Consult

	//Convert a Json to Query
	let query = ngsi.createQuery({
	"id":"Device.*",
	"type":"Device",
	"options":"keyValues",
	"dateObserved" : ">=2018-02-20T16:54:03.931-06:00"
	})
	console.log(query)

Output

	?id=Device.*&Device&type=Device&options=keyValues&q=dateObserved>=2018-02-20T16:54:03.931-06:00

Usage with OCB-sender

	//Send requests to ContextBroker
	cb.getWithQuery(query)
    .then((result) => console.log(result))
	.catch((err) => console.log(err))

Data Model JSON Schema Analizer

ngsi-parser helps you to manage your Data Models like used in Fiware, ngsi-parser can analize if the entity complies with the specified model and identify its errors, to do it you need the JSON Schema of this Data Model provided or you can build some.

You can know about JSON Schemas in JSON Schema.

Importing your JSON Schema

You can import your JSON schema importing a JSON from a file or from a repository using the help of ocb-sender.

Importing From a JSON File

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	var mySchema = require('mySchema.json');
	ngsi.setModel({
		mySchema : mySchema
	});

Importing From a remote repository

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	ngsi.setModel({
		myRemoteSchema : 'https://yourdatamodels.com/myRemote'
	});

Importing from various sources

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	var mySchema = require('mySchema.json');
	ngsi.setModel({
		mySchema : mySchema,
		myRemoteSchema : 'https://yourdatamodels.com/myRemote',
		AlertModel : 'https://raw.githubusercontent.com/smartsdk/dataModels/master/Alert/schema.json',
		anotherModel : require('anotherSchema.json')
	});

Using your Data Models Schemas

To use the schemas imported from a JSON file only you need to specify the name with which you entered it to ngsi-parser and it will return you one array with the errors found.

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	var mySchema = require('mySchema.json');
	ngsi.setModel({
		mySchema : mySchema
	});
	var entity = { 
		id :'Room1',
		type:'Room',
		temperature : 50, 
		dateStamp :  new  Date()  
	};
	let errors  = ngsi.verifyModel('mySchema', entity);
	if (errors.length === 0 ){
		console.log("The entity it's OK")
	}else {
		errors.map(console.log)
	}

To use Schemas from a remote repository is necesary download it, is because you need use ocb-sender, and in this case the method ngsi.verifyModel() becomes to a promise.

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	var ocb = require('ocb-sender');
	ngsi.setModel({
		myRemoteSchema : 'https://yourdatamodels.com/myRemote',
	});
	var entity = { 
		id :'Room1',
		type:'Room',
		temperature : 50, 
		dateStamp :  new  Date()  
	};
	ngsi.verifyModel('myRemoteSchema', entity, ocb)
	.then((errors) => { 
		if (errors.length === 0 ){
			console.log("The entity it's OK")
		}else {
			errors.map(console.log)
		}
	})

Use without storing the JSON schema

	var ngsi = require('ngsi-parser');
	var ocb = require('ocb-sender');
	ngsi.verifyModel('https://yourdatamodels.com/myRemote', entity ,cb)
	.then((errors) => { 
		if (errors.length === 0 ){
			console.log("The entity it's OK")
		}else {
			errors.map(console.log)
		}
	})
