Project description

Flask-PyMODM is the bridge between Flask and PyMODM, it brings to developers a simplified way to use PyMODM in Flask applications.


To start using Flask-PyMODM, install or update it via pip:

pip install Flask-PyMODM

A Simple Example

from flask import Flask
from flask_pymodm import PyModm

def configure_app(app):
   app.config['MONGODB_DB_NAME'] = 'test'
   app.config['MONGODB_HOST'] = 'localhost'
   app.config['MONGODB_PORT'] = '27017'

def create_app():
   app = Flask(__name__)
   return app

if __name__ == '__main__':
   create_app().run(host='', port=5000)

Customizing Properties

In order to customize the host, add the following into your app.config (see Configuration Handling for more details):

MONGODB_HOST = ""                 # default is "localhost"
MONGODB_PORT = "27017"                       # default is "27017"
MONGODB_DB_NAME = "test"                     # default is "my-app"
MONGODB_ALIAS_CONNECTION = "my_connection"   # default is "default"
MONGODB_USERNAME = "my_username"             # default is None
MONGODB_PASSWORD = "my_password"             # default is None


To run test suite use the tox command.
