The What and Why: Robin Keys

The idea of Robin Keys is to provide flexibility and make for a better developer experience while naming fields for your User model.

Fundamentally, the keys object consists of the three unique fields we currently have for each user — userToken, profileImage, and userName. The values of those fields should be strings you would rather refer to them as.

Here's an example:

keys: {
    userToken: 'user_token',
    profileImage: 'profile_image',
    userName: 'user_name'

This way, you can refer to a user’s user token as user_token, profile image as profile_image, and username as user_name.

Interesting, right? You’re welcome!
