Driver for allowing Django to use MongoDB as the database backend.

Project description

Use Mongodb as a backend database for your django project, without changing a single django model!


  1. Install djongo:

    pip install djongo
  2. Into file of your project, add:

         'default': {
             'ENGINE': 'djongo',
             'NAME': 'your-db-name',
  3. Run (ONLY the first time to create collections in mongoDB): makemigrations migrate



  1. Djongo requires python 3.6 or above.

How it works

Djongo is a SQL to mongodb query transpiler. It translates a SQL query string into a mongoDB query document. As a result, all Django features, models etc work as is.

Django contrib modules:


and others… fully supported.
