FEATURES AVAILABLE

PERFORM JOINS AMONG DIFFERENT COLLECTIONS OF MONGODB

USAGE

<!-- authors collection -->
  [
   {"_id": 100, "name": "author 1"},
   {"_id": 102, "name": "author 2"},
   {"_id": 103, "name": "author 3"}
  ]
 
 <!-- blogs collection -->
   [

ONE_TO_ONE

let take an example of

ONE_TO_ONE i.e one blog belongs to one author

so we need a query like get all blogs and join the author in blog document.

here parent is blog and child is author since author will be appended to blog
condition: null (since we want all the blogs)
joinCollectionName: authors (since we will join author to blogs)
joinFieldName: authorid (since parent is blog the key that is present in child is authorid)
foreignFieldName: _id (authorid can be mapped to _id with author)
aliasname: authoralias (or what ever you prefer for the aliasname you can provide any string)
outputfields: null since we want to select all
typeofJoin: ONE_TO_ONE

IN Action for ONE_TO_ONE

const mongodbrelation = require('mongodbrelation');
let query = mongodbrelation.joinedQuery(null,"authors", "authorid", "_id", "authoralias", null, "ONE_TO_ONE"); 
let dbquery = BlogModel.aggregate(query); // where BlogModel is mongoose Model Object
dbquery.exec(function(err, result) {
  console.log(result);
})

CONSOLE OUTPUT

[
  {
    "_id": 1,
    "blogname": "blog1",
    "description": " blog description 1",

ONE_TO_MANY

let take an example of

ONE_TO_MANY i.e one author can write may blogs

so we need a query like get author where authorid = 100 and append his/her blogs in blogalias

here parent is blog and child is author since author will be appended to blog
condition: {"_id":100} (since we want the author where _id: 100)
joinCollectionName: blogs (since we will join blogs to authors)
joinFieldName: _id (since parent is author and _id is present in child as collection blogs as authorid)
foreignFieldName: authorid (authorid can be mapped to _id with authors collection)
aliasname: blogalias (or what ever you prefer for the aliasname you can provide any string)
outputfields: null since we want to select all
typeofJoin: ONE_TO_MANY

IN Action for ONE_TO_MANY

  const mongodbrelation = require('mongodbrelation');
  var query = mongodbrelation.joinedQuery({_id: 100},"blogs", "_id", "authorid", "blogalias", null, "ONE_TO_MANY"); 
  let dbquery = AuthorsModel.aggregate(query); // where AuthorsModel is mongoose Model Object
  dbquery.exec(function(err, result) {
    console.log(result);
  })

CONSOLE OUTPUT
