MongooseJS Essentials – Learn MongoDB for Node.js – Learn how to create Mongoose Schemas to build a full CRUD application based on the MongoDB database design.
In this course we will build a simple application to show how to perform full CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations within Node.js.
We’ll be using the Node module MongooseJS. Mongoose allows us to define our models in the form of a schema, along with a simple to use API that abstracts away a lot of the pain of working directly with the MongoDB driver.
First, we will create a Book schema using MongooseJS. We will use string data types to add a title, author and description. Next, we will build a simple server using Express.js. Then we will build 4 routes to query, update and delete Books from our Schema. We will use Postman to perform actions on these routes and check the results in our browser.
