Mongo aggregation builder

Maggregate

Simple aggregation pipeline builder for MongoDb. Inspired by the eloquent aheckmann/mquery.

var Maggregate = require('maggregate');
 
require('mongodb').connect(uri, function (errdb) {
  if (err) return handleError(err);
 
  // get a collection 
  var collection = db.collection('artists');
 
  // Create an instance of an aggregation 
  var aggregation = new Maggregate(collection);
 
  // Build and execute 
  aggregation
    .match({'works.medium': 'paint'})
    .unwind('$works')
    .match({'works.medium': 'paint'})
    .group({_id: '$_id', paintingCount: { $sum: 1 }});
    .exec(cb);
 
  // Or with a callback... 
  var aggregation = new Maggregate(collection);
  aggregation
    .match({'works.medium': 'paint'})
    .unwind('$works')
    .match({'works.medium': 'paint'})
    .group({_id: '$_id', paintingCount: { $sum: 1 }}, cb);

Maggregate also supports co

var aggregation = new Maggregate(collection);
 
var result = yield aggregation.match('works.medium': 'paint').unwind('$works');

Currently, all mongo aggregation pipeline operators are supported. To learn how to use them, see the documentation for them.

All operations map to their same name, without the $ prefix. All operations are chainable, and can take a callback for their last argument, making the call to exec unnecessary.

Briefly, the operations are:

  • project
  • match
  • limit
  • skip
  • unwind
  • group
  • sort
  • geoNear

Maggregate provides a few methods to help use the built aggregation, in addition to the operators specified above.

change the collection on the aggregation. returns the chainable interface.

var writers = db.collection('writers');
aggregation.collection(writers).group({...});

Executes the aggregation. Takes a callback in the form of function(err, resp)

aggregation.group({...}).exec(function(errresp) {
  //Do stuff with it. 
});

Wraps the db response using the given model. Simply passes the response into the given constructor. Returns the chainable interface.

var AnalyticsReport = require('./analytics-report-model.js')
aggregation.wrap(AnalyticsReport);
 
// ... 
// Bunch of queries to make a complex analytics report from the collection 
// ... 
 
aggregation.exec(function(errreport) {
  report instanceof AnalyticsReport === true // true 
});
