Serverless self-contained database with pymongo interface

Project description

pyfongo

pyfongo is an in-process library that implements a self-contained, serverless, zero-configuration, mongodb database engine with pymongo's interface.

Inspired by pymongo and sqlite.

Written for Python 3.6.

When to use

  • unit testing of apps that use mongodb
  • stand-in for mongodb during demos and testing
  • as application file format
  • data analysis using mongodb queries
  • temporary database for reorganizing data
  • in embedded systems

Examples

>>> import pyfongo
>>> cx = pyfongo.FongoClient('/path/to/datadir')
>>> db = cx.test
>>> db.my_collection.insert_one({'x': 10}).inserted_id
ObjectId('5aded7ff7aea217b9056e9d0')
>>> db.my_collection.insert_one({'x': 12}).inserted_id
ObjectId('5aded8467aea217b9056e9d1')
>>> db.my_collection.find_one()
{'x': 10, '_id': ObjectId('5aded7ff7aea217b9056e9d0')}
>>> for item in db.my_collection.find().sort('x', -1):
...     print(item['x'])
...
12
10

Testing

The same tests are run against both pyfongo and a local mongodb server using pymongo to ensure that pyfongo mimics mongodb/pymongo's behavior correctly.

Run the tests with: pipenv run pytest -sv

Note that you will need to run pipenv install --dev once before you can run the tests.
