It's a simple REST interface for MongoDB written in Python that can be used straight away from a Backbone application. It's an alpha version. We are using it to develop backbone apps without having to worry about the server side. We've coded what we've needed so far. In the future we plan to add more features, such as, authentication, user privileges, etc.
At the moment backmongo can be only used as a flask extension, but we plan to add extensions from other frameworks.
You could install all with
$ [sudo] pip install -r requirements.txt
as a Flask extension
from flask import Flask from flask.ext import backmongo app = Flask(__name__) backmongo.init_app(app, url_prefix='API') if __name__ == "__main__": app.run(debug=True)
From the command line
$ python flask_backmongo.py path/to/project/dir
There's an example in examples/todos/ (a slightly modified version of this) that illustrates how easy it's to use backmongo from a backbone application.
- Using Mocha to test a Backbone application on Node.js
- Avoiding XMLHTTPRequest problem using jQuery on Node.js
To execute the tests you need to install Mocha globally
$ npm install -g mocha
and later install the other required modules locally
$ npm install should $ npm install jquery $ npm install backbone $ npm install xmlhttprequest
Then you have to type in the console
By default the tests are working in a data base called backmongo. If you need to change this create a file named backmongo_conf.py in the root folder, or in some place in your PYTHONPATH, and set the data base name in the variable DATABASE. You could see an configuration file example in examples/todo/static/backmongo_conf.py
