project name: http_voodoo_mongo
platform:     linux
requirement:  ruby

usage: it's a remote controller for your local/remote MongoDB instances working over an HTTP mocking service

What it consists of?

*currently I've just added "mongodump" task to it (with & without authorization detail), will slowly add more..... it's all opensource, even you can update if you want

a REST API for Remote Controlling MongoDB Server over HTTP using the same 'authentication' as of MongoDB Server

  1. Hi there! My name is Lindsay, and I’m the Community Manager at, a website that offers content and links to the development and software community. I’d like to tell you about our Most Valuable Bloggers program, a free program that brings content from excellent blogs such as yours to our audience. If you are interested please e-mail me at I hope to hear from you!

    (The Wordpress login I used is for my personal blog, which is 100% unrelated to my roles at DZone. Your commenting system wouldn't let me log in any other way. Feel free to read my blog if you'd like, but it is pretty development/software free as that is an area in which I have minimal knowledge. However there is plenty of nerdy goodness!)
