Learn Python – Python MongoDB Connectivity- Basic and advance

To create connection between Python programming language and MongoDB database, we want to first deploy pymongo driver. Here, we are developing an example that connects to the database and performs fundamental database operations.

This example includes the following steps:

  1. Install Driver
$ pip install pymongo  

2) Create Python File

// connect.py

from pymongo import MongoClient # import mongo client to connect  
import pprint  
# Creating instance of mongoclient  
client = MongoClient()  
# Creating database  
db = client.javatpoint  
employee = {"id": "101",  
"name": "Peter",  
"profession": "Software Engineer",  
}  
# Creating document  
employees = db.employees  
# Inserting data  
employees.insert_one(employee)  
# Fetching data  
pprint.pprint(employees.find_one())  

3) Execute Python Script

This script prints the inserted document on the console.

4) Enter into Mongo Shell

Now, enter into MongoDB database shell to see the created database and collection.

We can use following command to enter into the database.

$ mongo  

5) Check Databases

The following command is used to show available databases.

> show dbs  

6) Check Collection

The following command is used to exhibit accessible series into the database.

> show collections  

7) Access Records

We can see the saved data in precise collection. The following command is used to exhibit the record.

> db.employees.find()
