I wrote Mongeese because I couldn't figure out how to transparently access multiple MongoDB databases using Mongoose API.

Install

npm install mongeese

Usage

Replace code requiring mongoose module like this:

var mongoose = require("mongoose");
mongoose.connect(...);

with:

var mongoose = require("mongeese").create();
mongoose.connect(...);

Result of create method call should look and behave exactly like mongoose module except each result can have its own default connection.

If you need to handle multiple databases at the same time, following should suffice:

var logdb = require("mongeese").create();
var keydb = require("mongeese").create();

logdb.connect('mongodb://localhost/log');
keydb.connect('mongodb://localhost/key');

That's it.
