Twilicious Contd.

Pulling all my tweets from .json files on my computer into a mongodb.

Step 1

Installed mongodb

Step 2

Used the import command to bring in one tweet and test that my DB worked

mongoimport -d test -c foo importfile.json

Unfortunately my DB is called "test" and my collection is called "foo" and I don't know how to change that now. ;) Instead of creating a script to loop through all my tweets and add them to the DB, I again used a bash command to do this. Just a simple for loop where for each file "type -f" do the mongoimport command.

for D in `find . -type f`; 
do  
    mongoimport -d test -c foo "${D}"; 
done

Step 3

Set up Node to use it as a way to communicate with mongodb

Step 4

Set up Express and got lost!

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
