    What is FOSSA?

    Continuously scan and comply with open source licenses across your deep dependencies.

    What is Mongoose?

    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.
