|Info:||Motor is a full-featured, non-blocking MongoDB driver for Python Tornado applications.|
|Author:||A. Jesse Jiryu Davis|
"Motor uses a clever greenlet-based approach to fully support both synchronous and asynchronous interfaces from a single codebase. It's great to see companies like MongoDB produce first-party asynchronous drivers for their products."
—Ben Darnell, Tornado maintainer
$ pip install motor
Motor works in all the environments officially supported by Tornado. It requires:
- Unix, including Mac OS X. Windows is not supported.
- Python 2.6 or later.
- backports.pbkdf2 for faster authentication with MongoDB 3.0+, especially on Python older than 2.7.8, or on Python 3 before Python 3.4.
See "Requirements" for details about compatibility.
