v0.11 Queries, Queryable, and useQuery

· 10 min read

Besides the performance and data integrity benefits of normalizing the state, we get the added benefit of being able to safely access and query the store directly.

In this release we tune and simplify this functionality by unifying around the concepts of Querable Schemas. These include Entity, All, Collection, Query, and Union

The biggest impact of this change is the introduction of a new hook useQuery(), which allows direct store lookups using the Querable Schemas.

class User extends Entity {
username = '';
id = '';
groupId = '';
pk() {
static index = ['username' as const];

const bob = useQuery(User, { username: 'bob' });
const bob = useQuery(User, { id: '5' });

Similarly, we can lookup Querables with controller and snapshot using the controller.get

const bob = snapshot.get(User, { username: 'bob' });

Additionally, we have invested in further performance improvements, resulting in around a 2x performance increase for most operations and Queries being 16x faster.

v0.2 Controller.fetch, async getHeaders, Collections

Collections enable Arrays and Objects to be easily extended by pushing or unshifting new members. The namesake comes from Backbone Collections.

Collections are now the default schema for Resource.getList.

import { useController } from '@data-client/react';
import { TodoResource } from './TodoResource';

export default function CreateTodo({ userId }: { userId: number }) {
  const ctrl = useController();
  const handleKeyDown = async e => {
    if (e.key === 'Enter') {
      ctrl.fetch(TodoResource.getList.push, {
        title: e.currentTarget.value,
        id: Math.random(),
      e.currentTarget.value = '';
  return (
    <div className="listItem nogap">
        <input type="checkbox" name="new" checked={false} disabled />
        <input type="text" onKeyDown={handleKeyDown} />

Upgrading is quite simple, as @data-client/rest/next and @data-client/react/next were introduced to allow incremental adoption of the new APIs changed in this release. This makes the actual upgrade a simple import rename.
