asynchronous python driver for mongo

branch: master

MongoDB driver for Python Twisted

This package started out as a fork of fiorix/mongo-async-python-driver. However, to implement the more difficult features of a MongoDB driver such as failover, it was nearly completely rewritten.

The primary features of the rewrite include:

  • reconfiguration of protocol connections upon master change.
  • failover to new master upon AutoReconnect failure.
  • depend on pymongo to avoid in tree pymongo driver to avoid drift.
  • Use python bson driver rather than in tree version.
  • tries to be careful about building and parsing protocol strings to improve throughput.
  • use namedtuple for message structures.

This particular fork of txmongo has added authentication support for the connection pool. The authentication is carried out using the "mongo_cred" method. The credentials are cached for each database and the authorization is carried out on a per socket basis for the connection pool as and when required. This particular fork uses helper functions from the PyMongo v2.5 to perform nonce and key generation to carry out the authentication.


You can use setuptools to install this txmongo fork.

sudo python install



Packing for debian exists in debian/, you can build yourself a package (remember to update debian/changelog) if you make changes.

dpkg-buildpackage -b

Then look for the package in your home directory.


rpmbuild -bb python-txmongo.spec

You might need to download Source0 from the .spec and place it in rpmbuild/SOURCES first.


If this fork provides the features you need, feel free to add to it. I'll try to be responsive to merge requests.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
