The Little MongoDB Book is a free book introducing MongoDB.

The book was written shortly after the creation of the MongoDB interactive tutorial. As such, the two can be seen as complementary.

The book was written by Karl Seguin, with Perry Neal's assistance.

If you liked this book, maybe you'll also like The Little Redis Book.

The book is written in Markdown and converted to PDF using Pandoc.

The TeX template makes use of Lena Herrmann's JavaScript highlighter.

Kindle and ePub format provided using Pandoc.

Generating books

Run specific Make target to get specific format:

  • make en/mongodb.pdf
  • make en/mongodb.epub
  • make en/

Pandoc uses TeX as a buffer tool to generate PDF files, so you need to have TeX installed (packages texlive-bin, texlive-core, texlive-latexextra would be enough).

Title Image

A PSD of the title image is included. The font used is Comfortaa.
