TypeORM Facility#

TypeORM uses different way on defining decorators, so without further step its impossible for Plumier to get type information of the entity decorated with TypeORM decorators, which will be problem if you want to use your entity as your DTO.

Plumier provided Facility to automatically transform your TypeORM decorated entity so it can be used by Plumier.

new Plumier()
.set(new WebApiFacility())
.set(new TypeORMFacility({ /* TypeORM configuration */ }))

Using above configuration, its now possible to use entity as the DTO like below

import { Entity, Column, PrimaryGeneratedColumn, getManager } from "typeorm"
import { TypeORMFacility } from "@plumier/typeorm"
import { WebApiFacility } from "plumier"
export class User {
id: number
email: string
name: string
password: string
role: "User" | "Admin"
export class UsersController {
private readonly repo: Repository<User>
constructor() {
this.repo = getManager().getRepository(User)
save(data: User) {
get(id: number) {
return this.repo.findOne(id)
modify(id: number, data: User) {
return this.repo.update(id, data)
delete(id: number) {
return this.repo.delete(id)
