Mongoose vs Realm React Native: What are the differences?

Developers describe Mongoose as "MongoDB object modeling designed to work in an asynchronous environment". Let's face it, writing MongoDB validation, casting and business logic boilerplate is a drag. That's why we wrote Mongoose. Mongoose provides a straight-forward, schema-based solution to modeling your application data and includes built-in type casting, validation, query building, business logic hooks and more, out of the box. On the other hand, Realm React Native is detailed as "Realm JavaScript enables you to efficiently write your app’s model layer in a safe, persisted and fast way. It’s designe". Realm JavaScript enables you to efficiently write your app’s model layer in a safe, persisted and fast way. It’s designed to work with React Native and Node.js.

Mongoose and Realm React Native are primarily classified as "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" and "Mobile Database" tools respectively.

Mongoose and Realm React Native are both open source tools. Mongoose with 19K GitHub stars and 2.63K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Realm React Native with 3.61K GitHub stars and 343 GitHub forks.

      Reviews of Mongoose and Realm React Native
      Review ofMongooseMongoose

      I inherited a stack where Mongoose is used in the database layer.

      It's been several months and it's still the single highest source of daily WT*s in my backend development. The API is full of irregularities and the design is a poor mix of object-orientation and stateful objects with a lot implicit behavior. Mongoose made the choices of taking the worst parts of ORMs and using them in a context where the benefits of ORMs don't apply. The only reason I'm keeping it is its handy .populate() feature. Expect bad surprises!

      We use mongoose and node-native for database querying.

      No-brainer for accessing Objects with NodeJS.
