    1. Install comfy-mongo
    npm install comfy-mongo --save
    1. Start MongoDB and listen for events
    var ComfyMongo = require("comfy-mongo")();
    ComfyMongo.on( "ready", () => {
        console.log( "MongoDB is ready!" );
    1. Connect and use MongoDB
    var ComfyMongo = require("comfy-mongo")();
    ComfyMongo.on( "ready", () => {
        console.log( "MongoDB is ready!" );
        connectToMongoDB( "mongodb://localhost:27017" );
    const MongoClient = require('mongodb').MongoClient;
    function connectToMongoDB( url ) {
        MongoClient.connect( url, { useNewUrlParser: true }, ( err, client ) => {
            console.log("Connected successfully to server");

    Running MongoDB Globally

    If you would simply like to run an instance of MongoDB, you can install ComfyMongoDB globally and run a CLI command.

    1. Install comfy-mongo globally
    npm install -g comfy-mongo
    1. Start MongoDB from console

    Connecting to MongoDB

    The MongoDB server will start on port 27017 and can be connected to with the url: mongodb://localhost:27017

    For an example connection, take a look at example.js!


    Currently, the MongoDB events available are:

    • readyComfyMongo.on( "ready", () => {} )
      • MongoDB is ready for connections
    • outputComfyMongo.on( "output", ( data ) => {} )
      • Stdout output stream
    • errorComfyMongo.on( "error", ( err ) => {} )
      • Stderr output stream
    • closeComfyMongo.on( "close", ( code ) => {} )
      • MongoDB has exited/closed with status code
