MongoDB driver to connect implementing OceanDB.


You should have running a mongo instance.


First of all we have to specify where is allocated our config. To do that we have to pass the following argument:


If you do not provide a configuration path, by default the config is expected in the config folder.

In the configuration we are going to specify the following parameters to


    module=mongodb          # You can use one the plugins already created. Currently we have mongodb and bigchaindb.
    module.path=            # You can specify the location of your custom plugin.
    db.hostname=localhost   # Address of your MongoDB.
    db.port=27017           # Port of your Mongodb.

    db.ssl=True             # If True, connections will be made using HTTPS, else using HTTP
    db.verify_certs=False   # If True, CA certificate will be verified
    db.ca_cert_path=        # If verifyCerts is True, then path to the CA cert should be provided here
    db.client_key=          # If db server needs client verification, then provide path to your client key
    db.client_cert_path=    # If db server needs client verification, then provide path to your client certificate

    db.username=user        # If you are using authentication, mongodb username.
    db.password=password    # If you are using authentication, mongodb password.            # Mongodb database name
    db.collection=col       # Mongodb collection name

Once you have defined this the only thing that you have to do it is use it:

    oceandb = OceanDb(conf)
    oceandb.write({"value": "test"}, id)

Environment variables

When you want to instantiate an Oceandb plugin you can provide the next environment variables:

  • $DB_PORT
  • $DB_NAME


Currently we are supporting a list of queries predefined in order to improve the search: All this queries present a common format: query:{"name":[args]}

This queries are the following:

  • cost

    Could receive one or two parameters. If you only pass one assumes that your query is going to start from 0 to your value.

    Next query: query:{"cost":[0,10]}

    It is transformed to: {"service.attributes.main.cost":{"$gt": 0, "$lt": 10}}

  • license

    It is going to retrieve all the documents with license that you are passing in the parameters, if you do not pass any value retrieve all.

    {"license":["Public domain", "CC-YB"]}

  • type

    It is going to check that the following service types are included in the ddo.

    {"type":["Access", "Metadata"]}

  • sample

    Check that the metadata include a sample that contains a link of type sample. Do not take parameters.


  • categories

    Retrieve all the values that contain one of the specifies categories.

    {"categories":["weather", "meteorology"]}

  • created

    Retrieve all the values that has been created after a specified date. The parameters available are 'today', 'lastWeek', 'lastMonth', 'lastYear'. If you pass more than one take the bigger interval. If you do not pass any parameter retrieve everything.


  • updatedFrequency

    Retrieve all the values that contain one of the specifies updated frecuencies.


  • text

    Retrieve all the values that match with the text sent.


Code style

The information about code style in python is documented in this two links python-developer-guide and python-style-guide.


Automatic tests are setup via Travis, executing tox. Our test use pytest framework.
