Provide conversion of ipaddr object for MongoDB

pip install ipmongo==0.1.3



Why need ipmongo

When using pymongo to handle ipaddr (Google's IP address manipulation library, https://pypi.python.org/pypi/ipaddr) object, since MongoDB does not support such object type natively, pymongo returns error.

If you want to use ipaddr object without manual conversion of the object when inserting into or selecting from MongoDB, you can use ipmongo to handle it for you automatically.

Limitations of ipmongo

  • It only supports ipaddr, Google's IP address manipulation library.
  • It only supports IPv4Address, IPv4Network, IPv6Address, IPv6Network of ipaddr.
  • It encodes the objects into str for storing in MongoDB. That means you cannot do network math on database level.
  • It assumes that you use Python built-in list, set, dict type to store these objects.
