A Buildout recipe to install and setup mongodb with Anaconda.

Project description

Travis Build


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. You can use the buildout option anaconda-home to set the prefix for the anaconda installation. Otherwise the environment variable CONDA_PREFIX (variable is set when activating a conda environment) is used as conda prefix.

The recipe will install the mongodb package from a conda channel in a conda environment defined by CONDA_PREFIX. It setups a MongoDB database in {{prefix}}/var/lib/mongodb. It deploys a Supervisor configuration for MongoDB in {{prefix}}/etc/supervisor/conf.d/mongodb.conf. Supervisor can be started with {{prefix}}/etc/init.d/supervisor start.

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

Supported options

The recipe supports the following options:


Buildout option pointing to the root folder of the Anaconda installation. Default: $HOME/anaconda.

Buildout options for mongodb:


The IP address that mongodb binds to in order to listen for connections from applications. Default:


The TCP port on which the MongoDB instance listens for client connections. Default: 27017

Example usage

The following example buildout.cfg installs MongoDB with Anaconda:

parts = myapp_mongodb

recipe = birdhousebuilder.recipe.mongodb
port = 27020
