modella-save-invalid

Adds method to persist models w/o validations

modella-save-invalid

Skip those pesky validations, sometimes.

This plugin overloads model.save to the following signature: model.save([skipValidations], cb). With out a boolean as the first argument, the behavior is identical to modella's default.

With the additional flag, it will skip validations. Optionally if SaveInvalid.invalidAttr or SaveInvalid.completeAttr is set, an invalid model will have that attribute persisted as well. This is useful so that you can only query for valid models. E.g:

var validTasks = Tasks.all({invalid: false}, function(err, tasks) {
  // Do something
});
var SaveInvalid = require('modella-save-invalid');

SaveInvalid.invalidAttr = 'invalid' // Optional, will persist the status into the database
SaveInvalid.completeAttr = 'complete' // Optional, will persist the status into the database, inverse of invalid.

User.use(SaveInvalid); // Assume some model w/ validations.


var user = new User();

user.username('Bobby');

// Assume user is still invalid.

user.save() // Will emit error and not save.
user.save(function(err) {
  err == undefined // Will be false
});

user.save(true) // Will save user in db and user.invalid() will be true
user.save(true, function(err) {
  err == undefined // Will be true (assuming no sync-layer errors)
});
