    Mongoose History Plugin

    Build Status

    Keeps a history of all changes of a document.

    Installation

    npm install mongoose-history

    Or add it to your package.json

    Usage

    For starting history of your collection, you need to simply add the mongoose-history plugin:

    var mongoose        = require('mongoose')
      , mongooseHistory = require('mongoose-history')
      , Schema          = mongoose.Schema
     
    var Post = new Schema({
        title:       String
      , message:     String
      , updated_for: String
    })
     
    Post.plugin(mongooseHistory)

    This will generate a log from al your changes on this schema.

    The plugin will create a new collection with format: originalCollectionName + _history, in example: posts_history. You can also change the name of the collection by setting the configuration customCollectionName:

    var options = {customCollectionName: "post_hst"}
    Post.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    The history documents have the format:

    {
        _id:  ObjectId,
        t: Date // when history was made
        o: "i" (insert) | "u" (update) | "r" (remove) // what happens with document
        d: {  // changed document data
            _id:         ObjectId
          , title:       String
          , message:     String
          , updated_for: String
        }
    }

    Indexes

    To improve queries perfomance in history collection you can define indexes, for example:

    var options = {indexes: [{'t': -1, 'd._id': 1}]};
    Post.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Send history to another database

    You can keep your history collection far away from your primary database or replica set. This can be useful for improve the architecture of your system.

    Just create another connection to the new database and link the reference in historyConnection:

    var secondConn = mongoose.createConnection('mongodb://localhost/another_conn');
    var options = {historyConnection: secondConn}
    Post.plugin(mongooseHistory, options)

    Store metadata

    If you need to store aditionnal data, use the metadata option It accepts a collection of objects. The parameters key and value are required. You can specify mongoose options using the parameter schema (defaults to {type: mongoose.Schema.Types.Mixed}) value can be either a String (resolved from the updated object), or a function, sync or async

    var options = {
      metadata: [
        {key: 'title', value: 'title'},
        {key: 'titleFunc', value: function(original, newObject){return newObject.title}},
        {key: 'titleAsync', value: function(original, newObject, cb){cb(null, newObject.title)}}
      ]
    };
    PostSchema.plugin(history,options);
    module.exports = mongoose.model('Post_meta', PostSchema);

    Statics

    All modules with history plugin have following methods:

    Model.historyModel()

    Get History Model of Model;

    Model.clearHistory()

    Clear all History collection;

    Development

    Testing

    The tests run against a local mongodb installation and use the following databases: mongoose-history-test and mongoose-history-test-second.

    Custom connection uris can be provided via environment variables for e.g. using a username and password:

    CONNECTION_URI='mongodb://username:password@localhost/mongoose-history-test' SECONDARY_CONNECTION_URI='mongodb://username:password@localhost/mongoose-history-test-second' mocha
    

    In progress

    • Plugin rewriting.
    • update, findOneAndUpdate, findOneAndRemove support.

    TODO

    • TTL documents
