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.
If you liked this book, maybe you'll also like The Little Redis Book.
The book is freely distributed under the Attribution-NonCommercial 3.0 Unported license.
The book is written in markdown and converted to PDF using PanDoc. A few LaTex specific commands have been placed in the markdown file to help with pdf-generation (namely for the title page and to create page breaks between chapters).
Kindle and ePub format provided using PanDoc. Run make en/mongodb.mobi to generate.
Generating the PDF
I use a variation of https://github.com/claes/pandoc-templates to generate the pdf:
#!/bin/sh paper=a4paper hmargin=3cm vmargin=3cm fontsize=11pt mainfont=Verdana sansfont=Tahoma monofont="Courier New" columns=onecolumn geometry=portrait nohyphenation=true markdown2pdf --xetex --template=template/xetex.template \ -V paper=$paper -V hmargin=$hmargin -V vmargin=$vmargin \ -V mainfont="$mainfont" -V sansfont="$sansfont" -V monofont="$monofont" \ -V geometry=$geometry -V columns=$columns -V fontsize=$fontsize \ -V nohyphenation=$nohyphenation --listings en/mongodb.markdown -o mongodb.pdf
A PSD of the title image is included. The font used is Comfortaa.
