PyMongo - the Python driver for MongoDB

7 years after Apache-2.0

======= PyMongo

:Info: See the mongo site <> for more information. See github <> for the latest source. :Author: Mike Dirolf :Maintainer: Bernie Hackett [email protected]


The PyMongo distribution contains tools for interacting with MongoDB database from Python. The bson package is an implementation of the BSON format <> for Python. The pymongo package is a native Python driver for MongoDB. The gridfs package is a gridfs <> implementation on top of pymongo.

Issues / Questions / Feedback

Any issues with, questions about, or feedback for PyMongo should be sent to the mongodb-user list on Google Groups. For confirmed issues or feature requests, open a case on jira <>_. Please do not e-mail any of the PyMongo developers directly with issues or questions - you're more likely to get an answer on the list.


If you have distribute <>_ installed you should be able to do easy_install pymongo to install PyMongo. Otherwise you can download the project source and do python install to install.


The PyMongo distribution is supported and tested on Python 2.x (where x >= 4) and Python 3.x (where x >= 1). PyMongo versions <= 1.3 also supported Python 2.3, but that is no longer supported. If you need to use Python 2.3 please contact us.

Additional dependencies are:

  • (to generate documentation) sphinx_
  • (to auto-discover tests) nose <>_


Here's a basic example (for more see the examples section of the docs):

import pymongo connection = pymongo.Connection("localhost", 27017) db = connection.test u'test' db.my_collection Collection(Database(Connection('localhost', 27017), u'test'), u'my_collection'){"x": 10}) ObjectId('4aba15ebe23f6b53b0000000'){"x": 8}) ObjectId('4aba160ee23f6b543e000000'){"x": 11}) ObjectId('4aba160ee23f6b543e000002') db.my_collection.find_one() {u'x': 10, u'_id': ObjectId('4aba15ebe23f6b53b0000000')} for item in db.my_collection.find(): ... print item["x"] ... 10 8 11 db.my_collection.create_index("x") u'x_1' for item in db.my_collection.find().sort("x", pymongo.ASCENDING): ... print item["x"] ... 8 10 11 [item["x"] for item in db.my_collection.find().limit(2).skip(1)] [8, 11]


You will need sphinx_ installed to generate the documentation. Documentation can be generated by running python doc. Generated documentation can be found in the doc/build/html/ directory.


The easiest way to run the tests is to install nose <>_ (easy_install nose) and run nosetests or python test in the root of the distribution. Tests are located in the test/ directory.
