NOTE this will not work in the recent versions of OpenShift Online because the environment variables are not correct in myflaskapp.py. If you want to fix them and give me a pull request it would be much appreciated. K THX BYE

This is the code to go along with the OpenShift blog piece on how to use Flask (python) with MongoDB to create a REST like web service with spatial data

Running on OpenShift

Create an account at http://openshift.redhat.com/

Create a python-2.6 application and add a MongoDB cartridge to the app

rhc app create -a pythonws -t python-2.6
rhc app cartridge add -a pythonws -c mongodb-2.0

Add this upstream flask repo

cd pythonws
git remote add upstream -m master git://github.com/openshift/openshift-mongo-flask-example.git
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master

Then push the repo upstream

git push

To add the data to the MongoDB instance please follow the instructions on this blog: Mongo Spatial on OpenShift

Be sure to:

  • add the data to a collection called parkpoints
  • create the spatial index on the documents

Once the data is imported you can now checkout your application at:
