Learn the process of returning information based on Mongo data.
- [Narrator] We're now going to update the code…to use MongoDB as a backend.…It'll still be pretty rudimentary as…we're only working with the to-do list,…but you will get a solid understanding of…how to interact with the Mongoose driver in Node.js.…Looking at the starting code, we'll need to…make a few changes.…Up here at the top of the script, we need to…add some code to access the Mongo database itself.…First thing that we need to do is require Mongoose…the database driver we'll be working with.…So var mongoose…is require mongoose.…
The next thing we need to do is to…tell Mongoose where it's going to…find the database to connect to.…So mongoose.connect…mongodb,…localhost for the server…and test for which database you want to access.…The next thing is to set up an interface into the database…so var db equals mongoose connection.…Now, you're going to need to define the schema…for the model you want to access.…
Mongo doesn't impose a schema, but for the…purposes of our server, we're going to set one up…in Mongoose so we only access those documents…
