continuable-mongo

A thin mongo wrapper which exposes mongodb as continuables

Example

For now you can pass either a callback to each collection method or not pass in a callback and the function returns a continuable

var mongo = require("continuable-mongo")

var client = mongo("mongodb://localhost:27017/my_db")

var myCollection = client.collection("my-collection")

myCollection.insert([{
    some: "key",
    value: "pair"
}], function (err, inserted) {
    // inserted records

    myCollection.findOne({
        some: "key"
    }, function (err, result) {
        // result.value === "pair"

        console.log("result", result)
    })
})

Differences from mongodb/Collection

Collection#findById

a collection object returned by client.collection has an additional .findById(id) method. This is used to find a record by it's mongodb _id. It's assumed that id is a string or otherwise valid argument to ObjectID and that the _id field on the mongodb record is a ObjectID

The purpose of this method is not have to manually require ObjectID to avoid littering your code base to mongodb internal references.

If you do need access to the raw ObjectID function there is a safer variant that can be required "continuable-mongo/object-id" which either returns a mongodb/ObjectID instance or will return an Error. Which means it's a function which will not throw but does need checking on the returned value.
