mongorc

RC but also can read config from MongoDB

mongorc

Read your rc config from MongoDB.

Installation

npm install mongorc

Usage

mongorc sits in front of rc and passes any config from MongoDB as a default. NOTE: this means that MongoDB config is lowest-precedent to rc.

 
var mongorc = require('mongorc')
 
mongorc(options, defaultoptions, callback)
 
 
var mongorc = require('mongorc')
 
var MONGODB_URL = process.env.MONGODB_URL || "localhost:27017/mydb"
 
mongorc({name:"myApp", configUrl:MONGODB_URL}, {foo:123}, function(errconfig) {
  console.log("config:", config)
})
 

mongorc will also parse CLI arguments for you - similar to how rc itself will parse the --config argument.

CLI arguments:

--configUrl <mongo db url>
 
--configCollection <collection name> [default: "config"]
 
--configQuery <JSON-form mongo query>
 

Example of CLI arguments for an application using mongorc:

# read config from:
#   DB at localhost:27017/myapp
#   Collection name myconfig
#   Document matching query {name: "myconfig"}
node index.js \
    --configUrl localhost:27017/myapp \
    --configQuery '{"name":"myconfig"}' \
    --configCollection configuration`

Because mongorc sits in front of rc, all the standard rc configuration methods will still work. So --config flag, environment variables, CLI options, etc.
