Installation

# npm install --save @reststate/vuex

To create a Vuex module corresponding to a resource on the server, call resourceModule():

import { Store } from 'vuex';
import { resourceModule } from '@reststate/vuex';
import api from './api';

const store = new Store({
  modules: {
    'widgets': resourceModule({
      name: 'widgets',
      httpClient: api,
    }),
  },
});

If you are accessing multiple resources, you can use mapResourceModules():

import { Store } from 'vuex';
import { mapResourceModules } from '@reststate/vuex';
import api from './api';

const store = new Store({
  modules: {
    ...mapResourceModules({
      names: [
        'widgets',
        'purchases',
      ],
      httpClient: api,
    }),
  },
});

The httpClient accepts an object with a signature similar to the popular Axios HTTP client directory. You can either pass in an Axios client configured with your base URL and headers. Note that spec-compliant servers will require a Content-Type header of application/vnd.api+json; you will need to configure your HTTP client to send that.

import axios from 'axios';

const httpClient = axios.create({
  baseURL: 'http://api.example.com/',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/vnd.api+json',
    'Authentication': `Bearer ${token}`,
  },
});

const module = resourceModule({
  name: 'widgets',
  httpClient,
});

Or else you can pass in an object that exposes the following methods:

const httpClient = {
  get(path) {
    // ...
  },
  post(path, body) {
    // ...
  },
  patch(path, body) {
    // ...
  },
  delete(path, body) {
    // ...
  },
};

That's all you need to do--the JSON:API spec takes care of the rest!
