I noticed you guys are planning on adding more ORM features into your platform, but in the meantime, is there an easy way to extend your Collections with Mongoose Collections?
Meteor: Integration with Mongoose?
You should be able to add:
npm install mongoose
You can then create a new package and require mongoose, within that you can assign the method to: Meteor.mongoose too and connect to the MONGO_URL (This is Meteors database) for this command. Take a look round the other packages if you need some help.
I did the sample work in this branch: https://github.com/jonathanKingston/meteor/tree/mongoose
This is 100% untested as I'm on a windows machine at the moment but it should open up: Meteor.mongoose and just normal mongoose for the standard use as explained here but already connected: https://github.com/LearnBoost/mongoose#readme
