    A Mongo storage module for Botkit that provides a simple system for storing information about a user, a channel, or a team.

    This project is an extension to Botkit Core, a richly featured developer toolkit for building bots and conversational apps.

    This module conforms to Botkit's storage plugin convention.


    Just require botkit-storage-mongo and pass it a config with a mongoUri option. In addition, you may pass a tables parameter, which will create methods for accessing additional tables (other than user, channel and team) in your Mongo database. Then pass the returned storage when creating your Botkit controller. Botkit will do the rest.

    Make sure everything you store has an id property, that's what you'll use to look it up later.

    var Botkit = require('botkit'),
        mongoStorage = require('botkit-storage-mongo')({mongoUri: '...', tables: ['optional','list', 'of', 'custom','tables', 'to', 'add']}),
        controller = Botkit.slackbot({
            storage: mongoStorage
    // then you can use the Botkit storage api, make sure you have an id property
    var beans = {id: 'cool', beans: ['pinto', 'garbanzo']};;'cool', function(error, beans){
        // do something with beans

    You can also get all entries from a table or find a selected set depending on a parameters.

    storage.users.all(function(error, users){
        // do something with users
    storage.users.find({team_id: team_id}, function(error, users){
        // do something with users

    As of 1.0.6, all functions also support Promise syntax:

    storage.users.all().then(function(list_of_users) {
      // do something


    npm i botkit-storage-mongo
