mongodb objectid utilities

about

1.x is probably the version you want to use in a browser. 3.x focuses on compatibility with the npm mongodb driver.

installation

$ npm install objectid

usage

var objectid = require('objectid')

var id = objectid()

objectid.isValid(id)
// => true

objectid.isValid('4frsdef43wzx')
// => false

objectid.isValid returns true for mongodb native driver ObjectID objects, or any other representations with a .toString method which returns the hex string encoding of a valid objectid.

Calling objectid with an existing objectid - whether a string, an object created by this module, an objectid created by another driver (such as the result of a query) - will cast the value to an instanceof this module. It will throw if the argument is not a valid ObjectId.

Static Methods

ObjectId.equals(oidA, oidB) => Boolean

Curried to support creating equality predicates.

ObjectId.tryParse(oid, out, as) => Boolean

ObjectId.isValid(oid) => Boolean

Instance Methods

ObjectId#equals(oidB) => Boolean

ObjectId#toString() => String

ObjectId#toJSON() => String
