    nested-pop

    Promise based nested populate for Waterline and SailsJS

    Installation

    $ npm install --save nested-pop

    Usage

    var nestedPop = require('nested-pop');
     
    User.find()
    .populate('dog')
    .then(function(users) {
     
        return nestedPop(users, {
            dog: [
                'breed'
            ]
        }).then(function(users) {
            return users
        }).catch(function(err) {
            throw err;
        });
        
    }).catch(function(err) {
        throw err;
    );

    If the property is named differently than the model, you may need to use it the following way.

    var nestedPop = require('nested-pop');
     
    User.find()
    .populate('canine')
    .then(function(users) {
     
        return nestedPop(users, {
            canine: {
                as: 'dog',
                populate: [
                    'breed'
                ]
            } 
        }).then(function(users) {
            return users
        }).catch(function(err) {
            throw err;
        });
        
    }).catch(function(err) {
        throw err;
    );

    If the property is plural, but the model is in the singular form, it usually automatically detects it. This only works when the property's plural form only adds a single 's' to the end of the model name.

    var nestedPop = require('nested-pop');
     
    User.find()
    .populate('dogs')
    .then(function(users) {
     
        return nestedPop(users, {
            dogs: [
                'breed'
            ]
        }).then(function(users) {
            return users
        }).catch(function(err) {
            throw err;
        });
        
    }).catch(function(err) {
        throw err;
    );
