npm version Build Status

Hapi-Multi-Mongo

Battle tested Hapi mongodb connection plugin, especially for multiple connections

Supports Hapi >= 17

To use with older versions of Hapi, please use 3.1.1 version

Motivation

Motivation to create this plugin is accessing multiple MongoDB servers and various databases in request/reply life cycle. The plugin accepts complex configuration options and exposes/decorates connections object to the server object.

Connection options can be a single object with the following keys:

  • connection: Required. Single MongoDB connection uri (eg. mongodb://user:pass@localhost:27017/db_name) or an array of multiple servers. Connection configuration can be a string, object or an array combination of object and strings. You can find a detailed explanation of this configuration in Usage section. One simple tip here, you have to connect directly to a database, or you have to provide a connection name for each connection element, plugin stores and exposes connections through database name or a given name.
  • options: Optional. Provide extra settings for the connection, see MongoClient documentation. You can override this setting by providing additional connection options to each server.
  • decorate: Optional. Rather have exposed objects accessible through server and request decorations.
    • If true, server.mongo else request.mongo
  • name: Optional. Exposed name to server and request object if you want to access connections other than name mongo.
    • If myMongos, server.myMongos else request.myMongos

Acknowledgements

This module borrows from hapi-mongodb, thank you to @Marsup for his excellent work.

Installation:

npm install hapi-multi-mongo

Usage:

Configuration object options. All of the samples in below are correct

// single connection to db_name
// access with request.server.plugins['hapi-multi-mongo'].mongo.db_name
// you can pick a collection and query from this usage
{
    connection: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/db_name'
}
// single connection to db_name
// access with request.server.plugins['hapi-multi-mongo'].mongo.myConn
// in this usage, you have to pick a database first
// then you need to choose a collection then you can have queries on that collection,
// keep that in mind
{
    connection: {
      uri: 'mongodb://localhost:27017',
