- So there are so many ways to do this password process…with Express and Mongo.…So many ways, I don't think there is a right way.…You can make a middleware.…Globally you can put one on the route,…you can put one on the router.…You can just have a utility function…that you require to use everywhere.…There's so many ways you can do this one thing.…But Mongoose allows us to teach our Models…and our Documents new tricks…by adding custom functions to them.…And this is where we're going to do it.…Because it makes sense to do it, to me at least,…on the actual models…because those are the things…that are going to save the password.…
So instead of having Express or Node know…about passing passwords,…I should just tell all my models about it,…like, hey, you know how to hash a password.…Hash yourself.…Or check yourself.…Versus like Node, check this password on this model.…All right it's like, just check yourself…and tell me if you're right.…So to teach Mongoose about new tricks,…there's a couple of ways we can do it.…So when we have our schema object that we create…
