MOCKGO Build Status

NPM

NPM

Mockgo is a in-memory mocking engine for mongodb. In contrast to existing solutions mockgo does not try to imitate the mongodb interface by implementing its methods. Instead it uses the same approach Mockgoose uses and spins up an actual mongodb instance which holds the data in memory. That way the full feature set of mongodb can be used.

Works on all platforms which is due to the awesome mongodb-prebuilt package.

After spinning up the mongodb instance a connection to that instance is automatically created and returned.

Installation

npm install mockgo

Usage

Require mockgo, then retrieve a connection to the in-memory instance of mongodb by calling getConnection. An optional database name can be specified.

var mockgo = require('mockgo')
 
mockgo.getConnection((error, connection) => {
  //`connection` is the connection to the mongodb instance 
})

You can retrieve connections to as many databases as you wish. They are internally cached.

Example

var mockgo = require('mockgo')
 
mockgo.getConnection('testDatabase', (error, connection) => {
    var collection = connection.collection('testDataCollection')
 
    collection.find({}).toArray((error, result) => {
        console.log(result); //result: [] 
 
        collection.insertOne({test: 'data'}, (error, result) => {
            collection.find({test: 'data'}).toArray((error, result) => {
                console.log(result); //result: [ { _id: 56f52afef6d8838417df1688, test: 'data' } ] 
 
                mockgo.shutDown(() => console.log('shutdown complete'))
            })
        })
    })
})

Methods and Properties

mockgo.getConnection([databaseName], callback)

Returns a connection to a in-memory instance on mongodb. If no databaseName is specified a dummy name will be used. If a connection to the same database is requested multiple times a cached version of the same connection instance is returned.

The connection instance is a instance from the official native mongodb driver.

If you wish to use another version of the mongodb package you can easily override it by setting the mongodb property before requiring a connection:

var mockgo = require('mockgo')
var mockgo.mongodb = require('mongodb') //version xyz 
 
mockgo.getConnection((error, result) => {
    // ... 
})

mockgo.shutDown(callback)

Closes all existing mongodb connections and shuts down the mongodb instance.

mockgo.mongodb

Exposes the version of the official native mongodb driver, gives the possibility to override it.

Testing with Mocha

This is an example for a simple test with mockgo in mocha.

var expect = require('chai').expect
var mockgo = require('mockgo')
 
var Loader = require('../lib/Loader')
 
describe('loaderTest', () => {
    var result, error
 
    before(done => {
        mockgo.getConnection((error, connection) => {
            expect(error).to.be.null
            loader = new Loader(connection)
 
            loader.loadSomething((_error, _result) => {
                error = _error
                result = _result
                done()
            })
        })
    })
    after(done => mockgo.shutdown(done))
 
    it('should not return a error', () => expect(error).to.be.null)
    it('should load something', () => expect(result).to.deep.equal({awesome: 'data'})
})
