The Todo Model

Let's create your first model. The CLI provides a useful command to generate a new file with an empty model.

foal generate model todo

FoalTS uses Mongoose, a complete Object-Document Mapper, to communicate with the MongoDB database.

Open the file todo.model.ts in the src/app/models directory and add a text field.

import { Document, model, Model, models, Schema } from 'mongoose';
const todoSchema: Schema = new Schema({
text: {
required: true,
type: String // String with a capital letter
export interface ITodo extends Document {
text: string; // string a lowercase letter
export const Todo: Model<ITodo> = models.Todo || model<ITodo>('Todo', todoSchema);
