    1.15.3 • Public • Published


    The official MongoDB connector for the LoopBack framework.

    Please see the full documentation at

    Customizing MongoDB configuration for tests/examples

    By default, examples and tests from this module assume there is a MongoDB server instance running on localhost at port 27017.

    To customize the settings, you can drop in a .loopbackrc file to the root directory of the project or the home folder.

    Note: Tests and examples in this project configure the data source using the deprecated '.loopbackrc' file method, which is not suppored in general. For information on configuring the connector in a LoopBack application, please refer to LoopBack documentation.

    The .loopbackrc file is in JSON format, for example:

        "dev": {
            "mongodb": {
                "host": "",
                "database": "test",
                "username": "youruser",
                "password": "yourpass",
                "port": 27017
        "test": {
            "mongodb": {
                "host": "",
                "database": "test",
                "username": "youruser",
                "password": "yourpass",
                "port": 27017

    Note: username/password is only required if the MongoDB server has authentication enabled.

    Additional Settings

    allowExtendedOperators - false by default, true allows to use mongo operators like

    $pop, $pullAll, $pull, $pushAll, $push,  $bit ```.
    enableGeoIndexing - ```false``` by default, ```true``` enables 2dsphere indexing for model properties
    of type ```GeoPoint```. This allows for indexed ```near``` queries etc.
    ## Running tests
    The tests in this repository are mainly integration tests, meaning you will need
    to run them using our preconfigured test server.
    1. Ask a core developer for instructions on how to set up test server
       credentials on your machine
    2. `npm test`
    ## Running benchmarks
    **Benchmarks must be run on a Unix-like operating system.**

    make benchmarks

    The results will be output in `./benchmarks/`.
    ## Leak detection
    Tests run for 100 iterations by default, but can be increased by setting the
    env var `ITERATIONS`.

    make leak-detection # run 100 iterations (default)


    ITERATIONS=1000 make leak-detection # run 1000 iterations

    ## Release notes
      * 1.1.7 - Do not return MongoDB-specific _id to client API, except if specifically specified in the model definition


    npm i loopback-connector-mongodbnext
