ActiveRecord for Mongo

This plugin provides an ActiveRecord connection adapter for Mongo (www.mongodb.org/).

This plugin relies on the “mongo” Ruby Gem, which can be found at github.com/mongodb/mongo-ruby-driver. See the README file there for installation instructions.

After installing this plugin, you will need a db/schema.rb file and a database.yml file. See below for instructions.

Installing

As noted above, this plugin requires the “mongo” Ruby Gem, version 0.11 or higher.

To add this plugin to your Rails app, move (or link) this directory into your Rails app's vendor/plugins directory and name it mongo_record. In other words, this README.rdoc file should be

RAILS_ROOT/vendor/plugins/mongo_record/README.rdoc

Schema

ActiveRecord requires a schema, but Mongo is a schema-free database. This means that you have to supply this plugin with a schema for your Mongo database that ActiveRecord can use.

This plugin reads the file named by ENV['SCHEMA'] or, if that is not defined, db/schema.rb to get the database schema the application wants to use.

Sample schema.rb

In case you need to hand-generate a schema file (for example, you don't have a db/schema.rb file generated by “rake db:schema:dump”, here is a small sample.

ActiveRecord::Schema.define(:version => 0) do

  create_table "students", :force => true do |t|
    t.column "name", :string, :null => false
  end

  create_table "addresses", :force => true do |t|
    t.column "student_id", :integer, :null => false
    t.column "street", :string
    t.column "city", :string
    t.column "state", :string
    t.column "postal_code", :string
  end

  add_index "addresses", ["student_id"], :name => "fk_addresses_students"

  create_table "courses", :force => true do |t|
    t.column "name",     :string
  end

  create_table "scores", :force => true do |t|
    t.column "student_id", :integer, :null => false
    t.column "course_id", :integer, :null => false
    t.column "grade", :float, :null => false
  end

end

Sample database.yml

development:
  adapter: mongo
  database: foo_development

test:
  adapter: mongo
  database: foo_test

production:
  adapter: mongo
  database: foo_production

Optional Logging

If you wish, you can use a Mongo capped collection for Rails log messages. To do so, edit the file init.rb and uncomment the code following the comment that says “Uncomment the following to log to Mongo using a capped collection.” See MongoRecord::LogDevice for details.

If enabled, log messages are sent to the capped collection named rails_log_{RAILS_ENV}.
