Mongoose vs TypeORM: What are the differences?

What is Mongoose? 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.

What is TypeORM? An ORM that can run in NodeJS and others. It supports both Active Record and Data Mapper patterns, unlike all other JavaScript ORMs currently in existence, which means you can write high quality, loosely coupled, scalable, maintainable applications the most productive way.

Mongoose belongs to "Object Document Mapper (ODM)" category of the tech stack, while TypeORM can be primarily classified under "Microframeworks (Backend)".

Mongoose and TypeORM are both open source tools. Mongoose with 19K GitHub stars and 2.63K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than TypeORM with 13.9K GitHub stars and 1.75K GitHub forks.

PedidosYa, Accenture, and WebbyLab are some of the popular companies that use Mongoose, whereas TypeORM is used by Sofit Software, Certain Lending, and KVIKYMART. Mongoose has a broader approval, being mentioned in 88 company stacks & 93 developers stacks; compared to TypeORM, which is listed in 6 company stacks and 7 developer stacks.

      MongoDB
      MongoDB stores data in JSON-like documents that can vary in structure, offering a dynamic, flexible schema. MongoDB was also designed for high availability and scalability, with built-in replication and auto-sharding.
      Anaconda
      A free and open-source distribution of the Python and R programming languages for scientific computing, that aims to simplify package management and deployment. Package versions are managed by the package management system conda.
      Python
      Python is a general purpose programming language created by Guido Van Rossum. Python is most praised for its elegant syntax and readable code, if you are just beginning your programming career python suits you best.
      Mongoid
      The philosophy of Mongoid is to provide a familiar API to Ruby developers who have been using Active Record or Data Mapper, while leveraging the power of MongoDB's schemaless and performant document-based design, dynamic queries, and atomic modifier operations.

      Reviews of Mongoose and TypeORM
      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.
