Using node modules in MongoBooster

Question:

Can I use node modules in MongoBooster?  I want to use axios in my script.  And, Do I have to install node module globally?

Answer:

Yes,  You can use pure JS node modules in MongoBooster.  And, you don’t need to install node modules globally.  

  1. Launch MongoBooster.
  2. Execute   Main Menu -> Help -> Open User Data Directory

  3. New Terminal at this folder

1
npm i axios  # run it in MongoBooster user data directory

After successfully installing this package in the MongoBooster User Data Directory, you can require and access it in the MongoBooster script.

const axios=require("axios");
let rst=await (axios.get('https://api.github.com/users/github'));//await promise The "await" is a build-in method in MongoBooster. refer to: https://www.mongobooster.com/blog/using-functions-with-async-callback
console.log(rst.data);

The “await” is a build-in method in MongoBooster. You can use it to await a promise or a promise array.

Run it and got result.

Now, you can assemble packages like building blocks in your MongoDB shell script.  The npm registry hosts almost half a million packages of free, reusable code — the largest software registry in the world.
