Scott walks through a more complex schema definition to introduce all the different data types that can be used when defining properties. These data types include Boolean, String, Number, Date, and Buffer. Scott also talks about nested objects and additional validation rules like min and max.
(traditional flute with heavy bass)…- So, above is a small example of a schema with Mongoose,…but those are the basics.…Here is a tour of a whole bunch of other types…we can use in the schema.…So, this time we're going to make a dog schema.…Alright, same thing, new, mongoose, schema.…Here we have a name for the dog, its type is string.…It's also required.…And we also want to enforce that it be unique.…So there can be no two dogs with the same name.…So if we tried to save a dog with a name,…whose type was string,…but then there already existed one with that same name,…with the same string,…it'll throw a validation error, or unique error.…
Unique also accounts for no values too.…But because we put required true,…we probably won't run into that error.…You will have that error…if you didn't put required true here,…but you put unique true,…and the first dog you save didn't have a name,…because it's not required,…the next dog you save didn't have a name,…it'll throw a validation error,…because you already have one dog who doesn't have a name,…
