Multi-column primary key

Sometimes you have a resource that doesn't have its own primary key. This is typically found in join tables that express many-to-many relationships.

Since the pk() method must return either a number, string or undefined, make sure to do a simple serialization. A simple join on the values should work. Be care to make sure your join value can't be a part of the id.

export class VoteResource extends Resource {
readonly userId: number | undefined = undefined;
readonly postId: number | undefined = undefined;
readonly createdAt: string = '1900-01-01T01:01:01Z';

pk() {
return [this.userId, this.postId].join(',');
}
static urlRoot = 'https://example.com/votes/';
}
