A StorageProvider for mongoose-crate that stores files in Amazon S3 buckets


const mongoose = require('mongoose')
const crate = require('mongoose-crate')
const S3 = require('mongoose-crate-s3')
const path = require('path')
const PostSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
  title: String,
  description: String
PostSchema.plugin(crate, {
  storage: new S3({
    key: '<api-key-here>',
    secret: '<secret-here>',
    bucket: '<bucket-here>',
    acl: '<acl-here>', // defaults to public-read 
    region: '<region-here>', // defaults to us-standard 
    // where the file is stored in the bucket - defaults to this function 
    path: (attachment) => `/${path.basename(attachment.path)}`
  fields: {
    file: {}
const Post = mongoose.model('Post', PostSchema)

.. then later:

const post = new Post()
post.attach('image', {
  path: '/path/to/image',
  // optionally send these additional headers 
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'image/png'
}, (error) => {
  // file is now uploaded and post.file is populated e.g.: 
  // post.file.url 


By default the region is assumed to be us-standard. The region is used to assemble the endpoint so please specify a different one if you are hosting in Europe, for example.

A full list of valid S3 regions is available from the AWS documentation website.
