For complete documentation, check out the Mongo Connector Wiki.
mongo-connector creates a pipeline from a MongoDB cluster to one or more target systems, such as Solr, Elasticsearch, or another MongoDB cluster. It synchronizes data in MongoDB to the target then tails the MongoDB oplog, keeping up with operations in MongoDB in real-time. It has been tested with Python 2.6, 2.7, and 3.3+. Detailed documentation is available on the wiki.
The easiest way to install mongo-connector is with pip:
pip install mongo-connector
You can also install the development version of mongo-connector manually:
git clone https://github.com/10gen-labs/mongo-connector.git cd mongo-connector python setup.py install
You may have to run
python setup.py install with
on where you're installing mongo-connector and what privileges you have.
mongo-connector replicates operations from the MongoDB oplog, so a replica set must be running before startup. For development purposes, you may find it convenient to run a one-node replica set (note that this is not recommended for production):
mongod --replSet myDevReplSet
To initialize your server as a replica set, run the following command in the mongo shell:
Once the replica set is running, you may start mongo-connector. The simplest invocation resembles the following:
mongo-connector -m <mongodb server hostname>:<replica set port> \ -t <replication endpoint URL, e.g. http://localhost:8983/solr> \ -d <name of doc manager, e.g., solr_doc_manager>
mongo-connector has many other options besides those demonstrated above.

You can also use mongo-connector with a configuration file.
