I would like to access Meteor's MongoDB from a Python client, while Meteor is running.
I can't start a mongod because Meteor's database is locked.
How do I access the database from another client?
Use the Meteor deployment instructions
The command will look like this:
PORT=3000 MONGO_URL=mongodb://localhost:27017/myapp node bundle/main.js
meteor command provides a clean way. To get the URL for the running mongod:
meteor mongo -U
which you can parse from python.
