MongoDB Python mongodb connectivity 1

2) Create Python File

// connect.py

  1. from pymongo import MongoClient # import mongo client to connect  
  2. import pprint  
  3. # Creating instance of mongoclient  
  4. client = MongoClient()  
  5. # Creating database  
  6. db = client.javatpoint  
  7. employee = {"id""101",  
  8. "name""Peter",  
  9. "profession""Software Engineer",  
  10. }  
  11. # Creating document  
  12. employees = db.employees  
  13. # Inserting data  
  14. employees.insert_one(employee)  
  15. # Fetching data  
  16. pprint.pprint(employees.find_one())  

3) Execute Python Script

This script prints the inserted record on the console.
