A Buildout recipe to install and setup mongodb with Anaconda.

Project description


birdhousebuilder.recipe.mongodb is a Buildout recipe to install and setup MongoDB with Anaconda. This recipe is used by the Birdhouse project.


The recipe requires that Anaconda is already installed. It assumes that the default Anaconda location is in your home directory ~/anaconda. Otherwise you need to set the ANACONDA_HOME environment variable or the Buildout option anaconda-home.

It installs the mongodb package from a conda channel in a conda environment named birdhouse. The location of the birdhouse environment is .conda/envs/birdhouse. It setups a MongoDB database in ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/var/lib/mongodb. It deploys a Supervisor configuration for MongoDB in ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/etc/supervisor/conf.d/mongodb.conf. Supervisor can be started with ~/.conda/envs/birdhouse/etc/init.d/supervisor start.

The recipe depends on birdhousebuilder.recipe.conda and birdhousebuilder.recipe.supervisor.
