mongo-start v2.1.0

Simple wrapper to get a mongojs collection

Build Status Mongo-Start =========

A simple mongojs wrapper to return a collection so you don't need to write the same thing over and over.

To configure the connection you can create an environment variable called "mongo-connection". However since mongo-start uses qconf you can store the setting anywhere that qconf lets you.

const users = require('mongo-start')('users'); //mongojs collection
users.find({...}, (err, collection) => {
  //do stuff
const db = require('mongo-start')(); //mongojs db object
db.getCollectionNames((err, collectionNames) => {
  //collections in the db
