Django MongoDB Engine is a MongoDB backend for Django, the Python Web framework for perfectionists with deadlines.

This documentation is split into several sections:

  • The tutorial introduces you to non-relational schema design and tools provided by Django MongoDB Engine to put that design into action.
  • Our topical guides explain every feature of Django MongoDB Engine in great detail – they’ll provide you with usage guides, API overviews, code samples etc.
  • The API reference has all the lower-level details on functions, methods, classes, settings, modules and whatnot.
  • In the Meta section, we collect information about the project itself: What has changed between versions, how development happens and how you can get involved.
