JS object processing functions

Let's look on the example of some database:

We have fields "id", "destination" (where to fly), date of creation, author name, hashtags and flight.

var posts = [

{

id: '1',

destination: 'China',

createdAt: new Date(2014, -1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 567),

author: 'ChingHang',

hashTags:['Berlin'],

flug: 'A-730'

},

{

id: '2',

destination: 'Italien',

author: 'PetrovPetr',

hashTags:['Minsk'],

flug: 'A-733'

},

{

id: '3',

destination: 'Spanien',

createdAt: new Date(2017, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 567),

author: 'IvanovaKatya',

hashTags:['Moskau'],

flug: 'A-777'

},

{

id: '4',

destination: 'Griechenland',

createdAt: new Date(2013, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 567),

author: 'ZaicevVasiliy',

hashTags:['Riga'],

flug: 'A-321'

},

];

The code above - our structure of masses to keep information structured.
Then we make a class, where all functions will be initialized and will be connected with our structure.

class arbeit {

(functions)

constructor(posts) {

this._posts=posts;
}
}

Getting posts with the filter (author)

getPosts(skip=0,top= 10, filterConfig){Preformatted text

if(filterConfig!=undefined){

let result = posts.filter(team => team.author === filterConfig.author)

return result.sort((a, b) => b.createdAt.getTime() - a.createdAt.getTime()).slice(skip,skip+top);

}

else {

return posts.sort((a, b) => b.createdAt.getTime() - a.createdAt.getTime()).slice(skip,skip+top);

}

}

Getting post with id

getPost(id) {

for (var i = 0; i < posts.length; i++) {

if (posts[i].id === id) {

return posts[i];

}

}

throw "No object with " + id + " id";

}

Validating object

validatePost(Object){

return Object.id != null && Object.destination != null && Object.destination.length<400

&& Object.author != null && Object.createdAt != null && typeof Object.id === "string" && typeof

Object.destination === "string" && typeof Object.flug === "string"

&& typeof Object.author === "string"

}

Clearing our "database"

clear(){

posts.splice(0,posts.length);

}

Adding a new post

addPost(Object){

if(this.validatePost(Object)){

posts.splice(posts.length,0,Object);

return true;

}

else {

return false;

}

}

Editing post

editPost(id,post){

if(this.validatePost(post)){

this.getPost(id).destination=post.destination;

this.getPost(id).author=post.author;

return true;

}else {

return false;

}

}

Removing post

removePost(id){

for (var i = 0; i < posts.length; i++) {

if (posts[i].id === id) {

return posts.splice(i,1);

}

}

throw "No object with " + id + " id";

}

Explanation of these functions I will make in another article. Follow me for updates.

Good luck in your job!
