Introduction

Mongode is a very thin (~200 lines of code) wrapper around the node-mongodb-native driver. It buffers collection operations until a connection is made, thus removing one level of callback nesting. It also binds collections to the database object as a key on the object making code easier to read. See below for examples of how to insert a document using mongode and how to bind collections.

Installation

npm install mongode

Examples

Insert

node-mongodb-native:

var mongodb = require('mongodb');
var server = new mongodb.Server("127.0.0.1", 27017, {});
new mongodb.Db('test', server, {}).open(function (error, client) {
  if (error) throw error;
  var collection = new mongodb.Collection(client, 'test_collection');
  collection.insert({hello: 'world'}, {safe:true}, function(err, objects) {
    if (err) console.warn(err.message);
  });
});    

mongode:

var mongode = require('mongode');
var test = mongode.connect('mongo://127.0.0.1/test');
var collection = test.collection('test_collection');
collection.insert({hello: 'world'}, {safe:true}, function(err, objects) {
  if (err) console.warn(err.message);
});

Binding

You can bind databases and collections by name:

var mongode = require('mongode');
mongode.connect('mongo://127.0.0.1/test');

var test = mongode.test;
test.collection('foo');
test.collection('bar');

test.foo.find().each(function(err, object) {});
test.bar.find().each(function(err, object) {});
