Mongoose Subkey Plugin

Simple plugin for Mongoose which adds the concept of a key to sub schema arrays and validates that there is no duplication. ## Installation

npm install mongoose-subkey

Usage

var subkey = require('mongoose-subkey');
 
var PhoneSchema = new Schema({
    type: {type:String, enum:['mobile','landline']},
    number: {type: String}
},{_id:false});
 
var PersonSchema = new Schema({
    name: String,
    phones: [PhoneSchema]
});
 
PersonSchema.plugin(subkey,{subschemas:[{list:'phones',keyList:['type']}]});
 
mongoose.model('Person', PersonSchema);
var Person = mongoose.model('Person', PersonSchema)
 
var personOne = new Person({name: 'John', phones:[{type:'mobile',number:'07876 123456'},{type:'mobile',number:'07876 999999'}]});
personOne.save(function (err) {
  if (err) {
     console.log('As expected, we get an error here, as two mobiles is excessive');
  } else {
     console.log("** Should have had an error here **");
  }
});
 
var personTwo = new Person({name: 'John', phones:[{type:'mobile',number:'07876 123456'},{type:'landline',number:'020 8888 7766'}]});
personTwo.save(function (err) {
  if (err) {
     console.log('** Unexpected error - it is OK to have a landline and a mobile');
  } 
});
