Documentation for Module:Cargo Jump to code ↴ [ edit | purge ]

This module processes the output of Cargo queries. Empty values are removed and in case of no results, nil is returned instead of an empty table.

Performance

The module introduces some additional overhead leading to slightly worse performance. Raw mw.ext.cargo.query queries should be used where the automatic stripping of empty strings is not needed.

Syntax

Main Article: Cargo documentation

The syntax is identical to the one provided by mw.ext.cargo.

local Cargo = {}

local checkType = require( 'libraryUtil' ).checkType
local cargoQuery = mw.ext.cargo.query

-- Clear empty string values from a given table and all subtables.
--
-- @param tbl
local function clearEmptyValues( tbl )
  local newTbl = {}
  for k,v in pairs( tbl ) do
    if type( v ) == 'table' then
      newTbl[k] = clearEmptyValues( v )
    elseif v ~= '' then
      newTbl[k] = v
    end
  end

  return newTbl
end

-- Run a Cargo query.
--
-- @param tables
-- @param fields
-- @param args
function Cargo.query( tables, fields, args )
  checkType( 'query', 1, tables, 'string' )
  checkType( 'query', 2, fields, 'string' )
  checkType( 'query', 3, args, 'table', true )

  local results = cargoQuery( tables, fields, args )
  results = clearEmptyValues( results )

  return results
end

-- Store values to a Cargo table.
--
-- @param cargoTable
-- @param values
function Cargo.store( cargoTable, values )
  checkType( 'store', 1, cargoTable, 'string' )
  checkType( 'store', 2, values, 'table' )

  local args = {}
  args._table = cargoTable
  for k,v in pairs( values ) do
    k = tostring( k )
    v = tostring( v )
    args[k] = v
