Package for mocking mongoose

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import goosemock from '';



npm version npm

Goosemock is mongoose mocking framework. This package was created because we needed to write unit tests on a backend that used mongoose and we needed something to mock the behavior of mongoose but in a dynamic way. It is essentially an in memory database but without the need for a even a database server or any installations. All mongoose functions affect in-memory data data structures.


Install Goosemock with npm

npm install goosemock


Using goosemock is simple. Simply require and run it after mongoose like so:

const mongoose = require('mongoose')
const goosemock = require('goosemock')


Now all calls to mongoose functions will be executed in-memory. Note also that even mongoose.connect() will no longer be able to connect to the server as it is intercepted by goosemock.
