Connecting to MongoDB with Fluent

You need to edit Config/fluent.json to define mongo as the underlying database technology to use as driver for Fluent:

    "driver": "mongo" 

Creating a driver is done using the MongoDB Connection String URI Format. Initializing a MongoDriver such a URI will attempt a connection to MongoDB.

import MongoDriver
import Fluent

let driver = try MongoDriver("mongodb://localhost")
let db = Fluent.Database(driver)

2.3.1 - Oct 26, 2018


  • When using distinct with no projection (computed fields), the driver falls back to filtering by document ID instead of collapsing all documents into one. #58

2.3.0 - Oct 26, 2018

This release adds support for distinct queries and projecting query results via the computed fields feature.

Caveat: both these new features behave differently than the SQL drivers. Check the tests for what to expect.

2.2.2 - Oct 24, 2018

This release fixes an issue which caused nested arrays to be serialized as empty subdocuments #56.

2.2.1 - Oct 17, 2017

  • Support outer joins

2.2.0 - Oct 12, 2017

  • Swift 4.0 package description
  • More aggregate types
    • min
    • max
    • sum
    • average
  • Queries with multiple joins
  • Queries on siblings
  • Bulk updates and deletes based with filters (also on joins)
