This Project is Being Moved to Jazzband

@garrypolley and I have agreed to move this project to the @jazzband organization. Since we've both been off MongoDB for several years, maintaining this project ourselves no longer makes sense. By handing this to Jazzband, we are:

  1. Putting the project in a place where it will be maintained and extended.
  2. Removes the time and effort needed to continue to accept and manage pull requests for a project we no longer wish to maintain but has a somewhat active user base.

Until then, if you decide to use this project, be forewarned that support and patches will not be forthcoming at this time. Why?

  1. The maintainers of this project are no longer working professionally with MongoDB.
  2. The maintainers of this project have to triage their open source time to projects that they use on a regular basis, or are paid to maintain.

If you want to pay the maintainers of this project to support it again, please contact @pydanny and/or @garrypolley. If you want to join the maintenance team to bring it back to life, please contact @pydanny.

About

django-mongonaut is an introspective interface for working with MongoDB via mongoengine. Rather then attempt to staple this functionality into Django's Admin interface, django-mongonaut takes the approach of rolling a new framework from scratch.

By writing it from scratch I get to avoid trying to staple ORM functionality on top of MongoDB, a NoSQL key/value binary-tree store.

Features

Installation

Made as easy as possible, setup is actually easier than django.contrib.admin. Furthermore, the only dependencies are mongoengine and pymongo. Eventually django-mongonaut will be able to support installations without mongoengine.

Get MongoDB:

Download the right version per http://www.mongodb.org/downloads

Get mongoengine (and pymongo):

pip install mongoengine=>0.5.2

Get the code:

pip install django-mongonaut==0.2.20

Install the dependency in your settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
...
'mongonaut',
...
)

You will need the following also set up:

  • django.contrib.sessions
  • django.contrib.messages

Note

No need for autodiscovery() with django-mongonaut!

Add the mongonaut urls.py file to your urlconf file:

urlpatterns = patterns('',
    ...
    (r'^mongonaut/', include('mongonaut.urls')),
    ...
)

Configuration

django-mongonaut will let you duplicate much of what django.contrib.admin gives you, but in a way more suited for MongoDB. Still being implemented, but already works better than any other MongoDB solution for Django. A simple example:

# myapp/mongoadmin.py

# Import the MongoAdmin base class
from mongonaut.sites import MongoAdmin

# Import your custom models
from blog.models import Post

# Instantiate the MongoAdmin class
# Then attach the mongoadmin to your model
Post.mongoadmin = MongoAdmin()

Documentation

All the documentation for this project is hosted at http://django-mongonaut.rtfd.org.

Dependencies

  • mongoengine >=0.5.2
  • pymongo (comes with mongoengine)
  • sphinx (optional - for documentation generation)
