Node.js Mongoose+GridFS Example

Half baked thoughts with more to come.

This application illustrates using mongodb's GridStore through mongoose to store files in mongodb's GridFS.

An interesting addition is that when files are downloaded they are streamed from mongodb rather than loading the whole file into memory at once.

Try it out


  • node.js (tested on v0.6.6)
  • coffee-script
  • mongodb (must be running)
  • npmjs

Running it

Install the dependencies by typing

  npm install .

And run it via coffee by typing

  coffee app

Running the Tests
