Use MongoDB URLs in your Django Application.

Project Description

This simple Django utility allows you to utilize the 12factor inspired MONGOURL_URL environment variable to configure your Django application.

This is a slight adaptation of the dj-database-url by Kenneth Reitz ( It is compatible with django-nonrel and can be used to dig up the URL setting for other purposes as well.


Configure your database in from DATABASE_URL:

DATABASES = {'default': dj_mongohq_url.config()}

Parse an arbitrary Database URL:

DATABASES = {'default': dj_mongohq_url.parse('mongodb://...')}

If you are not using Django with nonrel capabilities and merely want to dig up the MongoDB settings, use another variable:

MONGODB = dj_mongohq_url.config()

Supported databases

Support currently exists for MongoDB.
