Mongoose.js Search With Full Text Search

If you’ve tried to use Regular Expressions to search for a string of text in Mongo, you’ve probably noticed that it is really slow.

Use “full text search” instead! The end result will be similar to using a  “LIKE” query in SQL.

NOTE: In order to use this feature, you must create a text index on a field in your data.
