sails-mongo

Mongo DB adapter for Sails.js

sails-mongo

Waterline adapter for MongoDB.

Heads up

sails-mongo maps the logical id attribute to the required _id physical-layer mongo id. In the current version of sails-mongo, you should not sort by id.

Install from NPM.

$ npm install sails-mongo --save

sails-mongo 0.11.x has updated to mongo native driver 2.0. If you using mongodb version <=2.4.5, it is recommended that you stick with sails-mongo 0.10.x.

Add the following config to the config/connections.js file:

module.exports.connections = {
 
  someMongoDb: {
    adapter: 'sails-mongo',
    host: 'localhost', // defaults to `localhost` if omitted 
    port: 27017, // defaults to 27017 if omitted 
    user: 'username_here', // or omit if not relevant 
    password: 'password_here', // or omit if not relevant 
    database: 'database_name_here' // or omit if not relevant 
  }
};

And set this particular mongo database as your default in config/models.js:

module.exports.models = {
  'connection': 'someMongoDb'
};

Alternatively, you can specify your Mongo configuration as a URL, e.g.:

module.exports.connections = {
 
  someMongoDb: {
    adapter: 'sails-mongo',
    url: process.env.MONGOLAB_URI
  }
};

This would be useful if, for instance, your Heroku env variables looked like:

MONGOLAB_URI=mongodb://heroku_app33429348:o9dag2076pnj70p8iqmaj2fiaq@049641.mongolab.com:49641/heroku_app33429348

####Using with Sails v0.9.x

Add the mongo config to the config/adapters.js file.

module.exports.adapters = {
  'default': 'mongo',
 
  mongo: {
    module: 'sails-mongo',
    host: 'localhost',
    port: 27017,
    user: 'username',
    password: 'password',
    database: 'your mongo db name here'
  }
};

Note: You can also use the old v0.8.x syntax as well, see next section for details.

Replication/Replica Set can be setup by adding the following options to the mongo object, with your own replica details specified:

replSet: {
  servers: [
    {
      host: 'secondary1.localhost',
      port: 27017 // Will override port from default config (optional) 
    },
    {
      host: 'secondary2.localhost',
      port: 27017
    }
  ],
  options: {} // See http://mongodb.github.io/node-mongodb-native/api-generated/replset.html (optional) 
}

Note: Replica set configuration is optional.

module.exports.adapters = {
  'default': 'mongo',
 
  mongo: {
    module: 'sails-mongo',
    url: 'mongodb://USER:PASSWORD@HOST:PORT/DB'
  }
};

Don't forget that Mongo uses the ObjectId type for ids.

Waterline is a brand new kind of storage and retrieval engine.

It provides a uniform API for accessing stuff from different kinds of databases, protocols, and 3rd party APIs. That means you write the same code to get users, whether they live in MySQL, LDAP, MongoDB, or Facebook.

Thanks so much to Ted Kulp (@tedkulp) and Robin Persson (@prssn) for building this adapter.
