Node.js framework to create REST API with express and mongoose models

# NPM
npm install coral --save

Creating Routes

pass path and mongoose models as configuration to Coral to generate routes

var app = express();
 
//define mongoose schema 
var ProductSchema = new Schema({
    name: String
});
//create the mongoose model 
var Product = mongoose.model('Product', ProductSchema);
 
//Coral will return the express router with REST routes  
var productRouter = new Coral({
    path: '/product',
    model:  Product
});
 
//use the Coral router in express app 
app.use(productRouter);

Above Coral router will generate the following routes

/product                            -   get
/product/:id                        -   get
/product                            -   post
/product/:id                        -   put
/product/:id                        -   delete

Following get parameters are supported to get sorted data and pagination

skip, limit, order, sort and page

In the skip, limit or page by default per page 10 records are returned this can be change through perPage option

var productRoutes = new Coral({
    path: '/product',
    model:  Product,
    perPage: 50
});

In some cases routes specific to some methods are needed like only want to provide user read, create and update functionality without delete this can be done by specifying methods option

var productRoutes = new Coral({
    path: '/product',
    model:  Product,
    methods: ['GET', 'POST', 'PUT']
});

Above coral route method will only generate the following routes without delete

/product                            -   get
/product/:id                        -   get
/product?skip=10&limit=10           -   get (limited records)
/product?sort=name&order=asc&page=1 -   get (pagination with sorting)
/product                            -   post
/product/:id                        -   put

Following options are supported to create specific methods routes

GET, POST, PUT and DELETE
