How does Query.prototype.equals() work in Mongoose ?

  • Last Updated : 17 Mar, 2021

The Query.prototype.equals() function is used to Specify the complementary comparison value for paths specified with where() function.
Syntax: 
 

Query.prototype.equals()

Parameters: This function has one val parameter of object type.
Return Value: This function returns Query Object.
Installing mongoose : 

npm install mongoose

After installing the mongoose module, you can check your mongoose version in command prompt using the command. 

npm mongoose --version

Now, create a folder and add a file for example, index.js as shown below.

Database: The sample database used here is shown below: 
 



Example 1:

index.js




const mongoose = require('mongoose');
  
// Database connection
    useNewUrlParser: true,
    useCreateIndex: true,
    useUnifiedTopology: true
});
  
// User model
const User = mongoose.model('User', { 
    name: { type: String },
    age: { type: Number }
});
  
var query = User.find({});
query.where('age').equals(5)
  .exec(function(err, res){
    if(err) console.log(err)
    console.log(res)
})

The project structure will look like this: 
 

Run index.js file using below command: 
 

node index.js

Output: 

[ { _id: 5ebc367da99bde77b2efb9bf, name: ‘Piyush’, age: 5, __v: 0 } ]



Example 2:

index.js




const express = require('express');
const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const app = express()
  
// Database connection
    useNewUrlParser: true,
    useCreateIndex: true,
    useUnifiedTopology: true
});
  
// User model
const User = mongoose.model('User', { 
    name: { type: String },
    age: { type: Number }
});
  
var query = User.find({});
query.where('age').equals(25).exec(function(err, res){
    if(err) console.log(err)
    console.log(res)
})
  
app.listen(3000, function(error ) {
    if(error) console.log(error)
    console.log("Server listening on PORT 3000")
});

The project structure will look like this: 
 

Run index.js file using below command: 
 

node index.js

Output: 

Server listening on PORT 3000
[ { _id: 5ebc3669a99bde77b2efb9ba, name: ‘Lalit’, age: 25, __v: 0 } ]
