Schema extractor for MongoDB.

Project Description

# Schema extractor for MongoDB

Mongo-inspector is a Python library that analyses the data of a MongoDB
database to extract its "schema" (I know...).

## Installation

$ pip install mongo-inspector

## Usage

import mongo_inspector
schema = mongo_inspector.extract_schema(
db_name='mydb',
host='myhost', # optional: default 'localhost'
port=xxxx # optional: default 27017
)

The returned schema looks like that:

{
u'SomeCollection': [
Attribute(name=u'id', types=[u'String']),
Attribute(name=u'someattribute', types=[u'String'])
],
u'AnotherCollection': [
Attribute(name=u'_id', types=[u'ObjectId']),
Attribute(name=u'someattr', types=[u'Object']),
Attribute(name=u'someattr.nested', types=[u'Number']),
Attribute(name=u'somelist', types=[u'Array']),
Attribute(name=u'somelist.__item__', types=[u'Object']),
Attribute(name=u'somelist.__item__.nested',
types=[u'String', u'Number'])
]
}

`Attribute(name, types)` is just a `nametuple`. Each attribute can have
several types.

## Future

* It might be usefull to return a tree instead of 'point-separated'
nested keys.
