#mongobackup

npm npm npm

A Grunt and Gulp compatible plugin to import or export MongoDb data by launching a child process, passing the commands for mongodump, mongorestore, mongoimport, mongoexport MongoDB Package Components.

This plugin is similar to grunt-mongo-backup in that it spawns a child process. The difference in mongobackup is that it is compatible with both Grunt and Gulp. Another difference of mongobackup is that it provides a means to pass separate options for both dump and restore operations.

Installation

Install package with NPM and add it to your development dependencies:

$ npm install mongobackup --save-dev

Support

As this plugin depends on the node child_process module and the spawn method, it doesn't yet support Windows systems.

Tested on MongoDB 3.2 >.

Usage

Grunt

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('mongobackup');

Configure via grunt.initConfig().

grunt.initConfig({
  mongobackup: {
    dump : {
      options: {
        host : 'localhost',
        out : './dumps/mongo'
      }
    },
    restore: {
      options: {
        db : 'testdb',
        host : 'localhost',
        drop : true,
        path : './dumps/mongo/testdb'
      }
    },
    import: {
      // options
    },
    export: {
      // options
    }
  }
});

Then run:

$ grunt mongobackup:dump

Or:

$ grunt mongobackup:restore

Or:

$ grunt mongobackup:import

Or:

$ grunt mongobackup:export

Gulp

var mongobackup = require('mongobackup');

// mongodump - dump all databases on localhost
gulp.task('mongodump', function() {
  mongobackup.dump({
    host : 'localhost',
    out : './dumps/mongo'
  });
});

// mongorestore - restore 'testdb' database to localhost
gulp.task('mongorestore', function() {
  mongobackup.restore({
    db : 'testdb',
    host : 'localhost',
    drop : true,
    path : './dumps/mongo/testdb'
  });
});

gulp.task('mongoimport', function() {
  mongobackup.import({
    // options
  });
});

gulp.task('mongoexport', function() {
  mongobackup.export({
    // options
  });
});

Then run:

$ gulp mongodump

Or:

$ gulp mongorestore

Or:

$ gulp mongoimport

Or:

$ gulp mongoexport

Options

  • Any provided options (such as host, out, etc) are passed as arguments to mongodump, mongorestore, mongoimport, or mongoexport. All arguments available in these two MongoDB Package Components are available as options. The boolean value true should be used for free standing arguments that don't accept a value, per the docs linked above.
