mongoose-list Build Status

List plugin for mongoose that allows pagination, filtering, sorting.

Installation

$ npm install mongoose-list

Usage

model.js

var mongoose = require('mongoose')
  , schema

mongoose.plugin(require('../lib/mongoose-list'),{searchFields: ['name']})

schema = new mongoose.Schema({
  name: {
    type: String,
    require: true
  }
})

module.exports = mongoose.model('Test',schema)

app.js

var Model = require('./model')

//with sorting
Model.list({start: 0, limit: 10, sort: 'name'},function(err,count,results){
  if(err) throw err
  console.log('found ' + count + 'records')
  results.forEach(function(row){
    console.log('name: ' + row.name)
  })
})

//with searching
Model.list({start: 0, limit: 10, sort: 'name', find: 'foo'},function(err,count,results){
  if(err) throw err
  console.log('found ' + count + 'records')
  results.forEach(function(row){
    console.log('name: ' + row.name)
  })
})

Instantiation Options

Search Fields

  • Variable searchFields
  • Default all non hidden schema paths

This option will limit what fields are considered searchable. By default it will search any field that does not start with _

Call Time Options

Start

  • Variable start
  • Default 0

Where to start showing records from. Also known as offset.

Limit

  • Variable limit
  • Default 10

Limit of records to return in result set.

Sort

  • Variable sort
  • Default ''

Uses a Mongoose style sort string eg: `+name -author'

Find

  • Variable find
  • Default ''

Filter results by value applying to the searchFields

Alternatively, the find variable can also be a custom mongoose query object like the following example:

var query = {
  find: {
    $or: [
      { field1: /something/ },
      { field2: new RegExp('else', 'i') }
    ]
  }
}
Model.list({start: 0, limit: 10, sort: 'name', find: query},function(err,count,results){
  if(err) throw err
  console.log('found ' + count + 'records')
  results.forEach(function(row){
    console.log('name: ' + row.name)
  })
})

This allows you to perform custom and complex queries and still make use of the remaining features of this module such as pagination.
