|Info:||An introspective interface for Django and MongoDB.|
|Author:||Daniel Greenfeld (http://github.com/pydanny)|
Extracted from http://consumernotebook.com, django-mongonaut is an introspective interface for working with MongoDB via mongoengine. Rather then attempt to staple this functionality into Django's Admin interface, django-mongonaut takes the approach of rolling a new framework from scratch.
By writing it from scratch I get to avoid trying to staple ORM functionality on top of MongoDB, a NoSQL key/value binary-tree store.
- Automatic introspection of mongoengine documents.
- Ability to constrain who sees what and can do what.
- Full control to add, edit, and delete documents
- More awesome stuff! See http://django-mongonaut.readthedocs.org/en/latest/index.html#features
Made as easy as possible, setup is actually easier than django.contrib.admin. Furthermore, the only dependencies are mongoengine and pymongo. Eventually django-mongonaut will be able to support installations without mongoengine.
Download the right version per http://www.mongodb.org/downloads
Get mongoengine (and pymongo):
pip install mongoengine==0.5.2
Get the code:
pip install django-mongonaut==0.2.11
Install the dependency in your settings.py:
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'mongonaut', ... )
You will need the following also set up:
No need for autodiscovery() with django-mongonaut!
django-mongonaut will let you duplicate much of what django.contrib.admin gives you, but in a way more suited for MongoDB. Still being implemented, but already works better than any other MongoDB solution for Django. A simple example:
# myapp/mongoadmin.py # Import the MongoAdmin base class from mongonaut.sites import MongoAdmin # Import your custom models from blog.models import Post # Instantiate the MongoAdmin class # Then attach the mongoadmin to your model Post.mongoadmin = MongoAdmin()
