A MongoDB-to-Web gateway based on the Pyramid web framework

Project description

zopyx_gridfs

This is a tiny GridFS (MongoDB) to web gateway based on the Pyramid web framework.

Installation

  • requires Python 2.6

  • create a virtualized environment using virtualenv

  • inside the virtualenv environment:

    bin/easy_install zopyx_gridfs
    
  • Create a server.ini configuration file containing:

    [app:zopyx_gridfs]
    use = egg:zopyx_gridfs
    reload_templates = true
    debug_authorization = false
    debug_notfound = false
    debug_routematch = false
    debug_templates = true
    default_locale_name = en
    # MongoDB specific configurations
    mongo_host = localhost
    mongo_port = 27017
    database = test
    
    [pipeline:main]
    pipeline =
        egg:WebError#evalerror
        zopyx_gridfs
    
    [server:main]
    use = egg:Paste#http
    host = 0.0.0.0
    port = 6543
    
    # Begin logging configuration
    
    [loggers]
    keys = root
    
    [handlers]
    keys = console
    
    [formatters]
    keys = generic
    
    [logger_root]
    level = INFO
    handlers = console
    
    [handler_console]
    class = StreamHandler
    args = (sys.stderr,)
    level = NOTSET
    formatter = generic
    
    [formatter_generic]
    format = %(asctime)s %(levelname)-5.5s [%(name)s][%(threadName)s] %(message)s
    
  • Start the GridFS server using (this will start a HTTP server on localhost:6543):

    bin/paster serve server.ini
    

Usage:

Downloading files

You can access files stored inside GridFS through HTTP:

http://localhost:6543/<collection>/<filename>

where collection refers to collection used by GridFS and filename is the _id used to store the file inside GridFS.

The server will return a 404 response if the requested file could not be found.

Uploading files

For uploading files into a collection you need to use the build-in upload form:

http://localhost:6543/<collection>/upload_form
