Motivation

At Software On The Road we've been using agenda and agendash for almost every project since 2017 but it always had its limitation. And due to a critical security issue that we found on the server middleware, we decided to fork agendash and rewrote it from scratch. At first, we tried to just patch the existing code but it was written in backbone.js, so it would be more effort to learn it that just use vue.js to re-create the existing features. After all, this is just a simple CRUD with pagination and search, nothing fancy.

Roadmap

  • Improve default security
  • Compatibility with agenda v3
  • Polish backend so it is more efficient (MongoDB Aggregation queries were rewritten and optimized)
  • Mobile/Responsive UI
  • Get more test coverage
  • Add middlewares for KOA, fastify, and other express-like libraries
  • You decide! Submit a feature request

Install

npm install --save agendash2

Note: Agendash requires mongodb version >2.6.0 to perform the needed aggregate queries. This is your mongo database version, not your node package version! To check your database version, connect to mongo and run db.version().

Middleware usage

Agendash2 provides Express middleware you can use at a specified path, for example this will make Agendash2 available on your site at the /dash path. Note: Do not try to mount Agendash2 at the root level like app.use('/', Agendash(agenda)).

var express = require('express');
var app = express();
 
// ... your other express middleware like body-parser
 
var Agenda = require('agenda');
var Agendash = require('agendash2');
 
var agenda = new Agenda({db: {address: 'mongodb://127.0.0.1/agendaDb'}});
// or provide your own mongo client:
// var agenda = new Agenda({mongo: myMongoClient})
 
app.use('/dash', Agendash(agenda));
 
// ... your other routes
 
// ... start your server

By mounting Agendash2 as middleware on a specific path, you may provide your own authentication for that path. For example if you have an authenticated session using passport, you can protect the dashboard path like this:

app.use('/dash',
  function (req, res, next) {
    if (!req.user || !req.user.is_admin) {
      res.send(401);
    } else {
      next();
    }
  },
  Agendash(agenda)
);

Other middlewares will come soon in the folder /lib/middlewares/. You'll just have to update the last line to require the middleware you need:

app.use('/agendash', Agendash(agenda, {
  middleware: 'koa'
}));

Note that if you use a CSRF protection middleware like csurf, you might need to configure it off for Agendash-routes.

Standalone usage

Agendash comes with a standalone Express app which you can use like this:

./node_modules/.bin/agendash2 --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb --collection=agendaCollection --port=3001

or like this, for default collection agendaJobs and default port 3000:

./node_modules/.bin/agendash2 --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb

If you are using npm >= 5.2, then you can use npx:

npx agendash2 --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb --collection=agendaCollection --port=3001

Install

npm i agendash2
