An introspective interface for Django and MongoDB

Project description


An introspective interface for Django and MongoDB.


Daniel Greenfeld (


Extracted from, django-mongonaut is an introspective interface for working with MongoDB via mongoengine. Rather then attempt to staple this functionality into Django’s Admin interface, django-mongonaut takes the approach of rolling a new framework from scratch.

By writing it from scratch I get to avoid trying to staple ORM functionality on top of a NoSQL key/value store.
