    Node Red Mongo Storage Plugin

    This plugin allows you to store your flows and library entries in MongoDB.

    The plugin creates a collection per entity type and save each entity seperatly which lead to increased performance.

    Getting Started

    For this one, you'll need a separate script to start your Node Red, as per the guide for running a custom Node-Red inside your process:

    http://nodered.org/docs/embedding.html

    You can also check my example node-red-app in the github repository: node red quickstart with node-red-mongo-storage-plugin

    Firstly, require the module:

    npm install --save node-red-mongo-storage-plugin

    Then, in your settings, add:

    var settings = {
        ...
        storageModule : require("node-red-mongo-storage-plugin"),
        storageModuleOptions: {        
            mongoUrl: 'mongodb://localhost:27017',
            //also possible
            //mongoUrl: 'PROCESS.ENV.MONGOURL',
            database: 'local',
            //optional
            //set the collection name that the module would be using
            collectionNames:{
                flows: "nodered-flows",
                credentials: "nodered-credentials",
                settings: "nodered-settings",
                sessions: "nodered-sessions"
            }
        },
        ...
    };

    Your storageModuleOptions could also be injected with env variables

    credit to: freefoote for creating the npm package node-red-flows-mongo which help me made this one.
