node Twitter

Note:

  • Minimum Node: v4.0.0
  • Minimum Mongoose: v4.0

Example

const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const hintPlugin = require('mongoose-hint');
 
// Mongoose schema
const Employee = mongoose.Schema({
  firstName: String,
  lastName: String,
  badgeNum: Number,
  locationId: String,
  teamId: String,
  type: {
    type: String,
    enum: [
      'ENG',
      'MGMT',
    ],
  },
});
 
// Indexes for schema
const TEAM_INDEX = {
  teamId: 1,
};
 
const LOCATION_TEAM_INDEX = {
  locationId: 1,
  teamId: -1,
};
 
const TEAM_TYPE_INDEX = {
  teamId: 1,
  type: 1,
};
 
Employee.index(TEAM_INDEX);
Employee.index(LOCATION_TEAM_INDEX);
Employee.index(TEAM_TYPE_INDEX);
 
// set the plugin with the hints to use, in order of priority
Employee.plugin(hintPlugin.find, [
  LOCATION_TEAM_INDEX,
  TEAM_TYPE_INDEX,
  TEAM_INDEX,
]);
 
// Queries
Employee.find({
  firstName: 'Kevin',
  teamId: 13,
  type: 'MGMT',
});
// applies TEAM_TYPE_INDEX hint
 
Employee.find({
  firstName: 'Kevin',
  teamId: 13,
});
// applies TEAM_INDEX hint
 
Employee.find({
  firstName: 'Kevin',
  teamId: 13,
  type: 'MGMT',
  locationId: '02446',
});
// applies LOCATION_TEAM_INDEX hint
 
Employee.find({
  firstName: 'Kevin',
  teamId: 13,
  type: 'MGMT',
  locationId: '02446',
}).hint({
  teamId: 1
});
// applies the given hint

Details

Uses ikat under the hood for pattern matching. Uses Mongoose middleware to apply hints to queries if a hint has not already been defined.

Pass in the hints in the array in order of priority - the first hint that matches the query will be used.

Supports find queries and update queries. require('mongoose-hint') exposes both find and update plugins. You can use either one, or both.

Tests

Tests can be run via the npm test command. We aim to write tests for all supported behaviors.

Note: To run tests, you will need to have a Mongo instance to connect to. By default we use the ikat_mongoose_hint_plugin_test_db database locally, but you can pick which database you'd like to run tests against with the TEST_DB environment variable like so:

TEST_DB=mongodb://127.0.0.1/test_db npm test

Linting

Linting can be run via the npm run lint command. All code must pass the code quality checks provided by eslint.

Contributing

Contributions are always welcome! This may come in the form of constructive criticism via GitHub issues, or direct PRs. Contributions will be required to pass all tests and must adhere to the guidelines set forth by the eslint style guide. This includes source files & test files.
