package jsonapi

import "github.com/google/jsonapi"

Package jsonapi provides a serializer and deserializer for jsonapi.org spec payloads.

You can keep your model structs as is and use struct field tags to indicate to jsonapi how you want your response built or your request deserialzied. What about my relationships? jsonapi supports relationships out of the box and will even side load them in your response into an "included" array--that contains associated objects.

jsonapi uses StructField tags to annotate the structs fields that you already have and use in your app and then reads and writes jsonapi.org output based on the instructions you give the library in your jsonapi tags.

Example structs using a Blog > Post > Comment structure,

type Blog struct {
	ID            int       `jsonapi:"primary,blogs"`
	Title         string    `jsonapi:"attr,title"`
	Posts         []*Post   `jsonapi:"relation,posts"`
	CurrentPost   *Post     `jsonapi:"relation,current_post"`
	CurrentPostID int       `jsonapi:"attr,current_post_id"`
	CreatedAt     time.Time `jsonapi:"attr,created_at"`
	ViewCount     int       `jsonapi:"attr,view_count"`
}

type Post struct {
	ID       int        `jsonapi:"primary,posts"`
	BlogID   int        `jsonapi:"attr,blog_id"`
	Title    string     `jsonapi:"attr,title"`
	Body     string     `jsonapi:"attr,body"`
	Comments []*Comment `jsonapi:"relation,comments"`
}

type Comment struct {
	ID     int    `jsonapi:"primary,comments"`
	PostID int    `jsonapi:"attr,post_id"`
	Body   string `jsonapi:"attr,body"`
}

jsonapi Tag Reference

Value, primary: "primary,<type field output>"

This indicates that this is the primary key field for this struct type. Tag value arguments are comma separated. The first argument must be, "primary", and the second must be the name that should appear in the "type" field for all data objects that represent this type of model.

Value, attr: "attr,<key name in attributes hash>[,<extra arguments>]"

These fields' values should end up in the "attribute" hash for a record. The first argument must be, "attr', and the second should be the name for the key to display in the the "attributes" hash for that record.

The following extra arguments are also supported:

"omitempty": excludes the fields value from the "attribute" hash. "iso8601": uses the ISO8601 timestamp format when serialising or deserialising the time.Time value.

Value, relation: "relation,<key name in relationships hash>"

Relations are struct fields that represent a one-to-one or one-to-many to other structs. jsonapi will traverse the graph of relationships and marshal or unmarshal records. The first argument must be, "relation", and the second should be the name of the relationship, used as the key in the "relationships" hash for the record.

Use the methods below to Marshal and Unmarshal jsonapi.org json payloads.

func MarshalErrors Uses

func MarshalErrors(w io.Writer, errorObjects []*ErrorObject) error

MarshalErrors writes a JSON API response using the given `[]error`.

For more information on JSON API error payloads, see the spec here: http://jsonapi.org/format/#document-top-level and here: http://jsonapi.org/format/#error-objects.

func MarshalOnePayloadEmbedded Uses

func MarshalOnePayloadEmbedded(w io.Writer, model interface{}) error

MarshalOnePayloadEmbedded - This method not meant to for use in implementation code, although feel free. The purpose of this method is for use in tests. In most cases, your request payloads for create will be embedded rather than sideloaded for related records. This method will serialize a single struct pointer into an embedded json response. In other words, there will be no, "included", array in the json all relationships will be serailized inline in the data.

However, in tests, you may want to construct payloads to post to create methods that are embedded to most closely resemble the payloads that will be produced by the client. This is what this method is intended for.

model interface{} should be a pointer to a struct.

func MarshalPayload Uses

func MarshalPayload(w io.Writer, models interface{}) error

MarshalPayload writes a jsonapi response for one or many records. The related records are sideloaded into the "included" array. If this method is given a struct pointer as an argument it will serialize in the form "data": {...}. If this method is given a slice of pointers, this method will serialize in the form "data": [...]

One Example: you could pass it, w, your http.ResponseWriter, and, models, a ptr to a Blog to be written to the response body:

 func ShowBlog(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
	 blog := &Blog{}

	 w.Header().Set("Content-Type", jsonapi.MediaType)
	 w.WriteHeader(http.StatusOK)

	 if err := jsonapi.MarshalPayload(w, blog); err != nil {
		 http.Error(w, err.Error(), http.StatusInternalServerError)
	 }
 }

Many Example: you could pass it, w, your http.ResponseWriter, and, models, a slice of Blog struct instance pointers to be written to the response body:

	 func ListBlogs(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
    blogs := []*Blog{}

		 w.Header().Set("Content-Type", jsonapi.MediaType)
		 w.WriteHeader(http.StatusOK)

		 if err := jsonapi.MarshalPayload(w, blogs); err != nil {
			 http.Error(w, err.Error(), http.StatusInternalServerError)
		 }
	 }

func MarshalPayloadWithoutIncluded Uses

func MarshalPayloadWithoutIncluded(w io.Writer, model interface{}) error

MarshalPayloadWithoutIncluded writes a jsonapi response with one or many records, without the related records sideloaded into "included" array. If you want to serialize the relations into the "included" array see MarshalPayload.

models interface{} should be either a struct pointer or a slice of struct pointers.

func UnmarshalManyPayload Uses

func UnmarshalManyPayload(in io.Reader, t reflect.Type) ([]interface{}, error)

UnmarshalManyPayload converts an io into a set of struct instances using jsonapi tags on the type's struct fields.

func UnmarshalPayload Uses

func UnmarshalPayload(in io.Reader, model interface{}) error

UnmarshalPayload converts an io into a struct instance using jsonapi tags on struct fields. This method supports single request payloads only, at the moment. Bulk creates and updates are not supported yet.

Will Unmarshal embedded and sideloaded payloads. The latter is only possible if the object graph is complete. That is, in the "relationships" data there are type and id, keys that correspond to records in the "included" array.

For example you could pass it, in, req.Body and, model, a BlogPost struct instance to populate in an http handler,

func CreateBlog(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
	blog := new(Blog)

	if err := jsonapi.UnmarshalPayload(r.Body, blog); err != nil {
		http.Error(w, err.Error(), 500)
		return
	}

	// ...do stuff with your blog...

	w.Header().Set("Content-Type", jsonapi.MediaType)
	w.WriteHeader(201)

	if err := jsonapi.MarshalPayload(w, blog); err != nil {
		http.Error(w, err.Error(), 500)
	}
}

model interface{} should be a pointer to a struct.

type ErrorObject Uses

type ErrorObject struct {
    // ID is a unique identifier for this particular occurrence of a problem.
    ID  string `json:"id,omitempty"`

    // Title is a short, human-readable summary of the problem that SHOULD NOT change from occurrence to occurrence of the problem, except for purposes of localization.
    Title string `json:"title,omitempty"`

    // Detail is a human-readable explanation specific to this occurrence of the problem. Like title, this field’s value can be localized.
    Detail string `json:"detail,omitempty"`

    // Status is the HTTP status code applicable to this problem, expressed as a string value.
    Status string `json:"status,omitempty"`

    // Code is an application-specific error code, expressed as a string value.
    Code string `json:"code,omitempty"`

    // Meta is an object containing non-standard meta-information about the error.
    Meta *map[string]interface{} `json:"meta,omitempty"`
}

ErrorObject is an `Error` implementation as well as an implementation of the JSON API error object.

The main idea behind this struct is that you can use it directly in your code as an error type and pass it directly to `MarshalErrors` to get a valid JSON API errors payload.
