Introduction

ofxMongo is an OpenFrameworks addons that allows you to connect with mongoDB server

alt text

This is a work in progress project, actually the addons allows you to connect to the mongoDB and insert the records. I will porting others function soon. Tested on OSX 10.13 and Linux Debian/Ubuntu created by Roberto Fazio Studio 2018

Including ofxMongo

Create a new project with PG (Project Generator) and add ofxMongo. Open the project file in your IDE.

Inside your ofApp.h you will need to include:

#include "ofxMongo.h"

Declare the mongoclient object

ofxMongo mongoclient;

setup path

    string host = "localhost";
    string port = "27017";
    string uri = "mongodb://" + host + ":" + port;
    string db_name = "openFrameworksDB";
    string collection_name = "of_collection";

Inside your ofApp.cpp

Make a connection to MongoDB with the default URI "mongodb://localhost:27017"

void ofApp::setup()
{
    mongoclient.init(host, port);
}

mongoclient.insert

void ofApp::keyPressed(int key)
{
        // insert
        int rnd = ofRandom(0.0f, 100000.0f);
        mongoclient.insert(db_name, collection_name, "myRandomField", ofToString(rnd));
}

The headers included in this addon were copied from:

/usr/local/include/bsoncxx/v_noabi/bsoncxx /usr/local/include/mongocxx/v_noabi/mongocxx /usr/local/include/libbson-1.0 /usr/local/include/libmongoc-1.0 /usr/local/opt/openssl/include/openssl

XCode Version 9.2 (9C40b) Mac OSX 10.12.6 Project Configuration Set-up

Use projectGenerator adding ofxMongo. Once you have installed all the libs you have to add the frameworks to Xcode project

in Xcode under Build Phase -> Linked Frameworks and Libraries

Add Cyrus SASL : libsasl2.tbd

Add resolv : libresolv.9.tbd

Add Snappy : libsnappy.a
