meteor Server Aggregation


Example

Andrew Mao's solution. Average Aggregation Queries in Meteor

Meteor.publish("someAggregation", function (args) {
    var sub = this;
    // This works for Meteor 0.6.5
    var db = MongoInternals.defaultRemoteCollectionDriver().mongo.db;

    // Your arguments to Mongo's aggregation. Make these however you want.
    var pipeline = [
        { $match: doSomethingWith(args) },
        { $group: {
            _id: whatWeAreGroupingWith(args),
            count: { $sum: 1 }
        }}
    ];

    db.collection("server_collection_name").aggregate(        
        pipeline,
        // Need to wrap the callback so it gets called in a Fiber.
        Meteor.bindEnvironment(
            function(err, result) {
                // Add each of the results to the subscription.
                _.each(result, function(e) {
                    // Generate a random disposable id for aggregated documents
                    sub.added("client_collection_name", Random.id(), {
                        key: e._id.somethingOfInterest,                        
                        count: e.count
                    });
                });
                sub.ready();
            },
            function(error) {
                Meteor._debug( "Error doing aggregation: " + error);
            }
        )
    );
});
