Expose mongoose object directly: 'RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded' #30

I'm trying to directly expose a mongoose object within the callback of the mongoose's find method. When calling res.expose(mongooseObject, 'mongooseObjectName') this results in a the following error:

RangeError: Maximum call stack size exceeded

I don't know if this is an error caused by mongoose or by expose. Does anybody know what's happening here and how i could fix it?

Didn't get a chance to take a peek under the hood but this hack worked for me.

  {objectLabel: JSON.parse(JSON.stringify(object))}

Don't ask how I stumbled on this :)

@premjg Using toObject or toJSON is probably a better solution.

  { objectLabel: mongooseDoc.toObject() }

@premjg @gregwym I have used this method but the issue is that my data have a field for date and it is not being escaped, thus resulting in javascript error. Any suggestion?
