Mongoose is an elegant MongoDB object modeling tool designed for Node.js. It provides a straightforward schema-based solution to model application data with built-in type casting, validation, query building, and business logic hooks. Mongoose simplifies interactions with MongoDB databases by offering a rich set of features like middleware support, schema inheritance, and virtuals.

Compared to raw MongoDB queries, Mongoose streamlines the development process by abstracting away the complexity of database interactions and providing a more structured approach to data modeling. It is actively maintained, widely used in the Node.js ecosystem, and considered a go-to choice for working with MongoDB in Node.js applications.
