An improved package that provides mongodb connectivity. Not compatible with pyramid_mongo or pyramid_mongodb

Project description

Pyramid Mongodb

A simple library to integrate mongodb into your pyramid application. Integrates with pyramid_mongodb2_debugtoolbar.


  • Supports multiple databases
  • Configuration only setup
  • Integrated debugtoolbar
  • Avoids recreating and closing MongoClient on every request.


pip install pyramid_mongodb2

Add the following to your application's ini file, (include pyramid_mongodb2_debugtoolbar if you want to debug):

mongo_uri = mongodb://
mongo_dbs = 
    foo-test = foo
pyramid.includes =
debugtoolbar.includes =

The code will use config.add_request_method() to add a Database object to your requests, where each database is accessible by db_database_name, as defined in your configuration.

Note: database names with hyphens in them will be converted to underscores, that is database baz-quux will be accessible by request.db_baz_quux.

When doing foo-test = foo, the mongodb database with name foo-test will be assigned to request.db_foo. This helps when testing so that you can use a separate database for development, testing and production without changing your application code, or if you just want to alias a database name.

In your code where you can access request, you now have the following variables:


request.db is the MongoClient object, should you ever need it.

In your view code, you can do this:

from pyramid.view import view_config

@view_config(route_name='home', renderer="templates/landing.mako")
def my_view(request):
    return {
        'some_data': request.db_foo.some_collection.find({'a': {'$gte': 5}}, {'_id': False}),
        'other_data': request.db_bar.visitors.insert_one({'person': request.remote_addr}),
