Python MongoDB Connectivity

To connect to a MongoDB database in Python, you can use the PyMongo library. Here are the steps to establish a connection:

  1. Install PyMongo: If you haven’t installed PyMongo, use the following command to install it via pip:
pip install pymongo
  1. Import the required libraries
import pymongo
  1. Connect to a MongoDB server
client = pymongo.MongoClient("mongodb://localhost:27017/")

Note: Replace localhost with the hostname or IP address of the server where MongoDB is installed. 27017 is the default port on which MongoDB listens for connections.

  1. Access a database
db = client["mydatabase"]

Note: Replace mydatabase with the name of the database that you want to connect to.

  1. Access a collection
collection = db["mycollection"]

Note: Replace mycollection with the name of the collection that you want to access.

  1. Perform database operations
# Insert a document
doc = {"name": "John", "age": 30}

# Find documents
for doc in collection.find():

Note: Replace name and age with the field names and their respective values that you want to insert.

That’s it! You are now connected to your MongoDB database and can start performing operations.
