Mongo DB has rapidly grown to become a popular database for web applications and is a perfect fit for Node.JS applications, letting you write Javascript for the client, backend and database layer. Its schemaless nature is a better match to our constantly evolving data structures in web applications, and the integrated support for location queries is a bonus that’s hard to ignore. Throw in Replica Sets for scaling, and we’re looking at really nice platform to grow your storage needs now and in the future. Now to shamelessly plug my driver. It can be downloaded via npm, or fetched from the github repository. To install via npm, do the following: npm   install   mongodb or go fetch it from github at  https://github.com/mongodb/node-mongodb-native Once this business is taken care of, let’s move through the types available for the driver and then how to connect to your Mongo DB instance before facing the usage of some CRUD operations.
