mongoose-nest is a hapi plugin to manage a connection to MongoDB using mongoose.

It has been designed to be as simple as possible and offers the following features:

  • connection to a database with or without credentials
  • the debug mode of mongoose can be enabled
  • the logging tags for the plugin can be chosen
  • the plugin will not fail to register if the instance of mongoose is not in 'disconnected' state.
  • the plugin will allow to choose an implementation of promises including native ones. Default behavior is mongosse's default one, using 'mpromise'.
