What's mongoose-attachments?

Mongoose-Attachments is an attachments plugin for Mongoose.js. Supports Amazon S3 out-of-the-box and ImageMagick transformations styles.

Installation

$ npm install mongoose-attachments

Usage

The following example extens the 'Post' model to use attachments with a property called 'image' and three different styles.

var mongoose = require('mongoose');
var attachments = require('mongoose-attachments');
var PostSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
  title: String,
  description: String
});

PostSchema.plugin(attachments, {
  directory: 'achievements',
    storage: {
      providerName: 's3',
      options: {
      key: '<key>',
      secret: '<secret>',
      bucket: '<bucket>'
    }
  },
  properties: {
    image: {
      styles: {
        original: {
          // keep the original file
        },
        small: {
          resize: '150x150'
        },
        medium: {
          resize: '120x120'
        },
        medium_jpg: {
          '$format': 'jpg' // this one changes the format of the image to jpg
        }
      }
    }
  }
});

var Post = mongoose.model('Post', PostSchema);

Using with Express.js uploads

Assuming that the HTML form sent a file in a field called 'image':

app.post('/upload', function(req, res, next) {
  var post = new mongoose.model('Post')();
  post.title = req.body.title;
  post.description = req.body.description;
  post.attach('image', req.files.image, function(err) {    
    if(err) return next(err);
    post.save(function(err) {
      if(err) return next(err);
      res.send('Post has been saved with file!');
    });
  })    
});

Using with an stand-alone app files

var post = new mongoose.model('Post')();
post.title = 'Title of the Post';
post.description = 'Description of the Post';
post.attach('image', {
    path: '/path/to/the/file.png'
  }, function(err) {    
    if(err) return next(err);
    post.save(function(err) {
      if(err) return next(err);
      console.log('Post has been Saved with file');
    });
})    

Metadata

When mongoose-attachments is used with images, it can provide basic information for each one of the specified styles:

Example:

{
  "dims" : {
    "w" : 120,
    "h" : 103
  },
  "depth" : 8,
  "format" : "PNG",
  "oname" : "dragon.png",
  "mtime" : ISODate("2012-05-22T06:21:53Z"),
  "ctime" : ISODate("2012-05-22T06:21:53Z"),
  "size" : 26887,
  "path" : "/achievements/4fbaaa31db8cec0923000019-medium.png",
  "defaultUrl" : "http://gamygame-dev.s3.amazonaws.com/achievements/4fbaaa31db8cec0923000019-medium.png"
}

Styles and ImageMagick Transformations

Transformations are achieved by invoking the convert command from ImageMagick and passing all the properties of the style as arguments.

For more information about convert, take a look at http://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-options.php

Example in convert command:

convert source.png -resize '50%' output.png

Example in plugin options:

styles: {
  small: {
    resize: '50%'
  }
}

Keeping the Original File

styles: {
  original: {
    // no transformations
  }
}

Multiples Transformations

Use another properties under the style to provide more transformations

styles: {
  small: {
    crop: '120x120',
    blur: '5x10' //radius x stigma
  }
}

More information about 'blur' at the [ImageMagick website] http://www.imagemagick.org/script/command-line-options.php#blur

Changing the Destination Format

You can change the destination format by using the special transformation '$format' with a known file extension like png, jpg, gif, etc.

Example:

styles: {
  as_jpeg: {
    '$format': 'jpg'
  }
}

Note: DO NOT include the dot in the extension.
