Javascript Question

Retrieve items from mongodb collections if an element of an array is present (meteor js)

I would like to retrieve elements from a collection only if an element in an array is equal to the current month that I have stored in a session. For example, if my session variable is equal to "juillet" I would like to have only the items which have "juillet" in the "moisrec" method :

Legumes = new Mongo.Collection("legumes");

if (Meteor.isServer) {
Meteor.startup(function() {
if (Legumes.find().count() === 0) {
var legumes = [{
nom: "poireau",
moisrec: ["juillet", "août"],
}, {
nom: "navet",
moisrec: ["octobre", "novembre"],
}, {
nom: "choux-fleur",
moisrec: ["juillet", "août"]
// Insert sample data into db.
legumes.forEach(function(item) {

I have a helpers that looks like this :

legumes : function() {
return Legumes.find({});

I use blaze after for templating :

{{#each legumes}}
<div class="col-sm-3">
<div class="thumbnail">
<img src="legumes/{{nom}}.jpg" alt="{{nom}}" width="400" height="300">
<p>Période récolte : {{#each mois in moisrec}}<a>{{mois}} </a>{{/each}}</p>
<button class="btn" href="/legumes:{{_id}}">Fiche complète</button>



Legumes.find({ moisrec: "juillet" });

That should get you what you need. Since it's a simple array of strings there isn't any other fancy calls you'll need to make.
