Monger, a modern Clojure MongoDB Driver
Monger is an idiomatic Clojure MongoDB driver for a more civilized age.
It has batteries included, offers powerful expressive query DSL, strives to support every MongoDB 2.0+ feature and has sane defaults. Monger is built from for modern Clojure versions and sits on top of the official MongoDB Java driver.
There is one MongoDB client for Clojure that has been around since 2009. So, why create another one? Monger authors wanted a client that will
- Support most of modern MongoDB features, focus on those that really matter.
- Be well documented.
- Be well tested.
- Target modern Clojure versions.
- Be as close to the Mongo shell query language as practical
- Integrate with libraries like Joda Time, Cheshire, clojure.data.json, Ragtime.
- Support URI connections to be friendly to Heroku and other PaaS providers.
- Not carry technical debt from 2009 forever.
Monger is not a young project: started in July 2011, it is over 3 years old with active production use from week 1.
