mongoose-findorcreate

Mongoose plugin that adds findOrCreate

Mongoose findOrCreate Plugin

Simple plugin for Mongoose which adds a findOrCreate method to models. This is useful for libraries like Passport which require it.

npm install mongoose-findorcreate

var findOrCreate = require('mongoose-findorcreate')
var ClickSchema = new Schema({ ... });
ClickSchema.plugin(findOrCreate);
var Click = mongoose.model('Click', ClickSchema);

The Click model now has a findOrCreate static method

Click.findOrCreate({ip: '127.0.0.1'}, function(errclickcreated) {
  // created will be true here 
  console.log('A new click from "%s" was inserted', click.ip);
  Click.findOrCreate({}, function(errclickcreated) {
    // created will be false here 
    console.log('Did not create a new click for "%s"', click.ip);
  })
});

You can also include properties that aren't used in the find call, but will be added to the object if it is created.

Click.create({ip: '127.0.0.1'}, {browser: 'Mozilla'}, function(errval) {
  Click.findOrCreate({ip: '127.0.0.1'}, {browser: 'Chrome'}, function(errclick) {
    console.log('A click from "%s" using "%s" was found', click.ip, click.browser);
    // prints A click from "127.0.0.1" using "Mozilla" was found 
  })
});
