I need to create CRUD Laravel 5 application using MongoDB as a database. I am Asp.net developer new to Laravel but don't know how to use mongoDB with it. Can anyone give me some tutorials or tips that can help me to start?
Also i followed the step which is in following link
If you are on a ubuntu system, then you can follow the below link to install mongo on your system https://gist.github.com/ankur13secret/3878e2cf80ef5ff2bb94 .
Or if you are on any other system, then first download mongo and do the setup.
To start using mongo in laravel, first you have to add mongo driver in your
config/database.php file like below
'mongodb' => [ 'driver' => 'mongodb', 'host' => env('DB_HOST', 'localhost'), 'port' => env('MONGO_DB_PORT', ''), 'database' => env('MONGO_DATABASE', ''), ],
then you need to add these in your .env file like below
MONGO_DB_PORT = 27017 MONGO_DATABASE = your_database_name
For using mongo, I am using jenssegers package https://github.com/jenssegers/laravel-mongodb .You need to install it first and you just need to follow few more steps written over there and it will work fine, if everything is good.
