mongo-oplog

Build Status NPM version XO code style

Listening to MongoDB live changes using oplog.

Features

  • Support start and stop tailing the MongoDB oplog at any time.
  • Support filtering oplog events by namespaces (database and collections).
  • Built on top of the native NodeJS MongoDB driver.
  • First class Promise support which enable the use of async and await.
  • The package has a very small footprint and requires just a few dependencies including mongodb, debug and eventemitter3.
  • Uses eventemitter3 for high performance event emitting.
  • Strict and readable code enforced with xo
  • Unit tested with mocha and built with babel for backward compatibility with older versions of NodeJS like v4.x and v5.x.

IMPORTANT! Major update version 2.0.x

2.0.x is a major rewrite taking advantage of es6 and adding support for promises and async/await. Callbacks are still supported for backward compatibility. This version has minimum API changes, but these changes might affect your code, so please take a look at the upgrading guide before installing.
