Accessing Databases

While it's recommended to isolate database calls to your getters and setters in your API, if an implementation requires it (e.g., when offering a public developer API), your database can be accessed in one of two ways in your route: via the global process.databases.<provider> object, or, via its alias at req.context.<provider>. Both methods are identical and are offered independently for convenience.


import joystick from '@joystick.js/node';{
  routes: {
    '/': async (req = {}, res = {}) => {
       const books = await process.databases.mongodb.collection('books').find().toArray();
       return res.status(200).send(books);
