I have a products and category collection. I want to query both of them and send the data through one controller so I can display products and categories in the same view.

This seems to work but I am not sure if it is the correct way of doing it? If not, please could you you advise me on a more appropriate way.

exports.getIndex = (req, res, next) => {
  Product.find({ status: "approved" })
    .sort({ createdAt: -1 })
    .then(products => {
      Category.find({})
        .sort({ catName: 1 })
        .then(category => {
          res.render("shop/index", {
            pageTitle: "My home page",
            path: "/",
            prods: products,
            category: category
          });
        });
    })
    .catch(err => {
      console.log(err);
    });
};

I have a problem where a record is updating in the database even when validation fails which should obviously not happen. I suspect it is the way I have structured my then() and catch() blocks but I'm not 100% sure.

exports.postEditListing = (req, res, next) => {
    const updatedTitle = req.body.title;
    const updatedDescription = req.body.description;
    const updatedCategory = req.body.category;
    const image = req.file;
    const productId = req.body.productId;
    const updatedSlugTitle = slugify(updatedTitle, {
        lower: true,
        remove: /[*+~.()'"!:@]/g
    });
    const errors = validationResult(req);
    if (!errors.isEmpty()) {
        Category.find({ catName: { $ne: updatedCategory } })
        .then(cats =>{
            return res.status(422).render('account/edit-listing', {
                pageTitle: 'Edit Listing',
                path: '/account/edit-listing',
                product: {
                    title: updatedTitle,
                    _id: productId,
                    category: updatedCategory,
                    description: updatedDescription
                },
                errorMessage: errors.array(),
                successMessage: null,
                pendingCount: req.pending,
                approveCount: req.approved,
                rejectCount: req.rejected,
                userId: req.user._id,
                cats: cats
            });
        })

    }
    Product.findById(productId)
        .then(product

I am trying to count database records in mongoDB (using mongoose) where records have a status of pending and approved as well as rejected. So, I am basically trying to get a result where I can show a count of each and display it in my view ie:

Pending: 35
 Approved: 97
 Rejected: 12

And I want to hold these in variables that I can use in different places ie:

const pending = ....
const approved = ....
const rejected = .....

I have tried to use the aggregate function and run a loop which gets me all the data I need but I don't know how to actually get the data into the three variables like above.

    Product.aggregate([
        { $group: { _id: { status: "$status" }, totalStatus: { $sum: 1 } } }

    ])

Open in new window


The above code gives me back this (I have no rejected values yet)

[
    {
        _id: {
            status: 'pending'
        },
        totalStatus: 15
    },
    {
        _id: {
            status: 'approved'
        },
        totalStatus: 27
    }
  ]

Open in new window


I then ran a loop and restructured the data:

        .then(status => {
            for (const current of status) {
                const [status, total] = [current._id.status, current.totalStatus];
                console.log(status + ': ' + total);
            }
            next();
        })

Open in new window


That gives me:

pending: 15
approved: 27

But it still isn't what I actually want. I need to get those values into their own variables. How can I do that?

I am used to php/mysql where I would just join tables but mongoose seems to be a whole other beast.

I have a product schema and a user schema.

here is product:

const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const Schema = mongoose.Schema;

const productSchema = new Schema({
    title: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    category: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    image: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    description: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    userId: {
        type: Schema.Types.ObjectId,
        ref: 'User',
        required: true
    },
    address: {
        city: {type: String, required: true }
    },
    createdAt: {
        type: Date,
        default: Date.now
    },
});

module.exports = mongoose.model('Product', productSchema);

Open in new window


And the user:

const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const Schema = mongoose.Schema;

const userSchema = new Schema({
    firstName: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    lastName:  {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    email: {
        type: String,
        required: true,
        index: true,
        unique: true
    },
    contactNo: {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    password:  {
        type: String,
        required: true
    },
    address: {
        city: {type: String, required: true },
    }
});

module.exports = mongoose.model('User', userSchema);

When I as the admin user want to see the users first name and last name for the added product (as well as that product informatioN) I would to 'join' the 'tables' and based on the UserID in the product schema get the first name and last name from the users schema.

I am trying to use .populate here but not sure if it's correct or efficient.

exports.getApprove = (req, res, next) => {
    const productId = req.params.productId;
    Product.findById(productId)
    .populate('userId', 'firstName', 'lastName')
    .then(product => {
        res.render('account/approve', {
            pageTitle: 'Approve Listing',
            path: '/accounts/approve',
            product: product
        });
    })
    .catch(err => {
        console.log(err);
    });
};

Open in new window


console.log(product.userId.firstName);

Open in new window


Just wondering if I am not meant to use .exec() or .execPopulate() here

I have only worked with php and mysql so am used to normalising my database and doing a lot of table joins etc. but I am moving over to node.js now and using mongoose with mongo DB and what I have gathered is that you shouldn't structure your db in the same way you would using php mysql. Apparently you should rather have a denormalised database. Could anyone give me an idea of where I could find a good example of this or possibly explain this in terms of an example? I have attached an image of a relational database setup I found on google and just wondered how the mongo db database would differ?

A new API requires us to receive about 45kb of information per row (record) and save this in a database, we see think about 700GB of data will be added PER year. The table is simple with 50 columns or fields. We are not sure if this is a job for MongoDB or MySQL. The setup must be able to scale horizontally, table will also be queried and searchable . About 1000 transactions per second.

Does MariaDB & MongoDB (I mean the Enterprise Edition) have
commercial support (just like RedHat Linux has while CentOS
is user-community support only)?

Concern is if there are security vulnerabilities (which may result
in data leaks) or DB corruption/integrity.  I've heard of banks
using MariaDB but I'm not sure if they house critical data but
I certainly would not want to house critical data on databases
that are non-commercially supported or even if it's commercially
supported by vendors with low track record (I deem Oracle &
MS as good-track record DB vendors).

I think MongoDB is a non-relational (ie network) DB.

Concern is if a database is hosting critical data, user-community
support is not non-committal & patches are not released as
regularly as commercially-supported softwares, though it's
noted MS release patches monthly, much more than any other
commercial vendors

I know there's a ton of questions around date/time storage and formatting, but I'm struggling to get the right approach. My app is a Node.js app with Express using mongoose with a MongoDB backend. I'm using moment.js to format my date/times.

The schema in question looks like:

const stateSchema = new mongoose.Schema({
  changed: {
    type: Date,
    default: new Date()
  }
});

Open in new window

Based on the docs, I was expecting the date to be stored in UTC by default, but instead I see this:
changed: 2018-08-15 17:26:14.499

Open in new window

I'm displaying the date/time with something like (pug):

p= `Changed: ${moment(state.changed).format('MMMM Do YYYY, h:mm:ss a')}`

Open in new window

On localhost, the app shows "August 15th 2018, 5:26:14 pm" but on the hosted Heroku app I get "August 15th 2018, 10:26:14 pm." I am expecting "August 15th 2018, 5:26:14 pm" because I'm opening the Heroku app in the same timezone, but it looks like it's giving me the server timezone.

What should I do to make sure the date/time shows up in the client's local timezone?

I am trying to install MongoDB on my hosted Linux box and getting this error.

I cannot seem to get it corrected after trying many different forum solutions.

Anyone have any thoughts?

My hosted system specs:
Operating system Debian Linux 8
Kernel and CPU Linux 3.16.0-5-amd64 on x86_64

 The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 mongodb-org : Depends: mongodb-org-server but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: mongodb-org-mongos but it is not going to be installed
               Depends: mongodb-org-tools but it is not going to be installed
 unifi : Depends: mongodb-server (>= 2.4.10) but it is not going to be installed or
                  mongodb-10gen (>= 2.4.14) but it is not installable or
                  mongodb-org-server (>= 2.6.0) but it is not going to be installed
         Depends: mongodb-server (< 1:3.6.0) but it is not going to be installed or

Hello. I am working on a node application.  I'm trying to use Passport for the log in.   I found an example online of what I want to do.  However I cannot get it to work.  I am running into an issue with my routes.  I get a compiler error that I have not seen before.  I tried to attached the project to this question, but it won't accept zip files so I will just attach my index.js and AuthController.js.  This is the error I get on index.js when it tries to do my first route.
 
var auth = require("../controllers/AuthController.js");

// restrict index for logged in user only
router.get('/', auth.home);

Hello All,

I am reading a book called express.js Blueprints.  I am trying to wrap my mind around understanding authentication using passport.  serializing and deserializing is not registering to me.  I have just started learning node and express js so that's a big reason why.

Here's a code from the book on setting up passport.  Starting with line 5, can someone please break down what's happening?  Where is the "user" parameter coming from in the serializeUser function?  Where did "user.id" come from?

var passport = require('passport');
var LocalStrategy = require('passport-local').Strategy;
var User = require('mongoose').model('User');

passport.serializeUser(function(user, done) {
done(null, user.id);
});
passport.deserializeUser(function(id, done) {
User.findById(id, done);
});

passport.use(new LocalStrategy(function(email, password, done) {
User.findOne({
email: email
}, function(err, user) {
if (err) return done(err);
if (!user) {
return authFail(done);
}
if (!user.validPassword(password)) {
return authFail(done);
}
return done(null, user);
});
}));

Hi there,

I have a mongo aggregation query that works fine in the mongo shell (and robomongo) but I can not work out how to translate this into a PHP query.

I am using PHP 5.6 with the latest mongo class (MongoDB\Driver\Query).  The mongo query looks like this:

db.products.aggregate(
   [
     {$match: {
             vendor_name : "vendor8",
             distributor_id : 8
         }
     },    
     { $sort: { 
         cw_product_code: 1, download_Date: 1 
         } 
     },
     { $group:
         {
           _id: "$cw_product_id",
           lastDownloadDate: { $last: "$download_Date" },
         }
     }        
   ],
     {allowDiskUse: true}     
)
