Connect multipart middleware configured to use MongoDB GridFS for file storage.
npm install connect-multipart-gridform
var multipart = require('connect-multipart-gridform'); app.use(multipart(options));
Options work the same way as in the connect multipart middleware, with these additions:
- db: (required) an open node-mongodb-native db instance
- filename: (optional) function
filename function is passed the
file.name before streaming to MongoDB providing an opportunity to customize the filename with a prefix etc.
For the curious, the options are first passed into a gridform before passing on to connects multiple middleware.
Connect multipart middleware uses formidable to process file uploads.
formidable streams the files to disk. Now you can stream directly into GridFS.
