Create a project
In order to get started with HumongouS.io, you need to create a project. A project basically establishes a link between your database and HumongouS.io. It allows you to define specifically which collections will be displayed in the app.
First, let's collect all the connection information necessary to connect to your database. Connection information usually consist of :
  • A hostname or an IP address.
  • A port number. The default port number on MongoDB is 27017.
  • A database name.
  • Most databases are protected against unwanted access by an authentication mechanism. Generally, it would be by providing a username and a password.
Most cloud providers will provide your connection information as a connection string, but depending on your provider, the steps to get it will be vary.
A connection string looks like this :
mongodb://username:password@hostname_or_ip:port/database_name
And given our test connection information :
{
 "hostname": "cluster0-ocdis.mongodb.net",
 "port": 27017,
 "database_name": "la_fontaine",
 "username": "eatit",
 "password": "KaEsqMxPMZd1sjRZ"
}
We will get the following connection string :
mongodb://eatit:KaEsqMxPMZd1sjRZ@cluster0-ocdis.mongodb.net:27017/la_fontaine
Now that we know what a connection string looks like, let's head to your database's cloud provider to fetch your connection string.
Select from the list below your database provider.
