libmongo-client

This is an alternative C driver for MongoDB, with slightly different goals than the official one.

We're not so strict on dependencies (we're using glib), and the API is very different too.

Features

The main purpose of this library is to provide a well maintained implementation, that suits a wider range of needs than the original:

  • Ability to easily construct mongodb commands, to be sent at a later time (comes in handy when one is trying to write from a separate thread).
  • C-like error handling. No toying around with exceptions.
  • Comprehensive test suite, with over 90% code coverage, and increasing.
  • Strict error handling.
  • ReplicaSet support, with support for automatic reconnecting and discovery.
  • Connection pooling.
  • Well documented API.

Requirements

Apart from glib, there are no other hard dependencies. Though, one will need OpenSSL for authentication support, and Perl (with a suitable version of Test::Harness, along with the prove utility) to run the test suite.

To build the documentation, Doxygen will be needed too.

Installation

The library follows the usual autotools way of installation:

$ git clone git://github.com/algernon/libmongo-client.git
$ cd libmongo-client
$ ./autogen.sh
$ ./configure && make && make install

License

Although the code is not based on any other driver, it is released under the same Apache License, version 2.0 (included as the file LICENSE).
