mongate Build Status

Kick start your nodejs app with mongodb via mongate.

mongate is inspired by need of having high level interface to node-mongodb-native apis. This removes most of the complexity and clutters to access mongodb natively.

Documentation

While working on Gyansource (an approach to infuse social networking in marketing and sales.), I realize that there is apparent need of wrapper on node-mongodb-native library to enhace reusability in the application.

Gyansource retrieves and persist docuemnts, images, user records, user comments etc in mongodb. Mongate is designed to hide low level interaction step with node-mongodb-native lib, and provides a clear, intutive interface from user point of view.

Examples

if you like to create a document in database

use mongate as follows

mongate.createDocument(document, callback);

document is a JSON, and a callback to know the status.

To read a document from database

mongate.readDocumentById(dbRequest, callback);

dbRequest is special command like object, which keeps atleast details of CollectionName and _id. For more information look in to structures of DbRequest class as well as test/mongate_test.js

Getting Started

Install the module with: npm install mongate

set your application specific settings in models/ApplicationConstants.js, such as dbName, application root/domain ...

and thats it, and mongate will do rest of the things such as setting up a connection, getting db client for mongodb, iterating over the items and much more, for details look at lib/mongate.js and test/mongate_test.js

var mongate = require('mongate');
mongate.readDocumentById(_id, callback)

Contributing

Mongate is an effort to come up with simple, intiutive and complete apis to build a web application's database layer.

Contribution is needed from the community as and when mongate needs to evolve.

In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
