Overview

Simplifies working with Amazon DynamoDB attribute values. Translates attribute values for requests and responses to sensible Ruby natives.

This plugin is enabled by default for all Client objects. You can disable this plugin by passing `simple_attributes: false` to the client constructor:

ddb = Aws::DynamoDB::Client.new(simple_attributes: false)

## Input Examples

With this plugin *enabled*, `simple_attributes: true`:

dynamodb.put_item(
  table_name: 'aws-sdk',
  item: {
    id: 'uuid',
    age: 35,
    tags: Set.new(%w(simple attributes)),
    data: StringIO.new('data'),
    scores: [5, 4.5, 4.9, nil],
    name: {
      first: 'John',
      last: 'Doe',
    }
  }
)

With this plugin *disabled*, `simple_attributes: false`:

# note that all types are prefixed in a hash and that
# numeric types must be serialized as strings
dynamodb.put_item(
  table_name: 'aws-sdk',
  item: {
    'id' => { s: 'uuid' },
    'age' => { n: '35' },
    'tags' => { ss: ['simple', 'attributes'] },
    'data' => { b: 'data' },
    'scores' => {
      l: [
        { n: '5' },
        { n: '4.5' },
        { n: '4.9' },
        { null: true },
      ]
    },
    'name' => {
      m: {
        'first' => { s: 'John' },
        'last' => { s: 'Doe' },
      }
    }
  }
)

## Output Examples

With this plugin *enabled*, `simple_attributes: true`:

resp = dynamodb.get(table_name: 'aws-sdk', key: { id: 'uuid' })
resp.item
{
  id: 'uuid',
  age: 35,
  tags: Set.new(%w(simple attributes)),
  data: StringIO.new('data'),
  scores: [5, 4.5, 4.9, nil],
  name: {
    first: 'John',
    last: 'Doe',
  }
}

With this plugin *disabled*, `simple_attributes: false`:

# note that the request `:key` had to be type prefixed
resp = dynamodb.get(table_name: 'aws-sdk', key: { 'id' => { s: 'uuid' }})
resp.item
# {
#   "id"=> <struct s='uuid', n=nil, b=nil, ss=nil, ns=nil, bs=nil, m=nil, l=nil, null=nil, bool=nil>
#   "age"=> <struct s=nil, n="35", b=nil, ss=nil, ns=nil, bs=nil, m=nil, l=nil, null=nil, bool=nil>
#   ...
# }
