About MongoDB

MongoDB is an open-source document-based database management tool that stores data in JSON-like formats. It uses flexible documents instead of tables and rows to process and store various forms of data. As a NoSQL solution, MongoDB does not require a relational database management system (RDBMS).

Integration of MongoDB and Thinkific


MongoDB is a document-oriented database that stores data in JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas. It is cross-platform, open source and schema-free. The database uses the document data model to store data, enabling dynamic queries and schema-less storage. (Huang, 2014)

MongoDB is used for storing non-relational data because of its flexibility and adaptability. The database has many advantages over relational databases because it has the ability to store unstructured data. For example, it can be used to store large vpumes of log files, images, session data etc.

The fplowing are some of the features of MongoDB:

Single server writes


Replica sets

Indexing & Querying

Capped cplections

Map/reduce framework

MongoDB supports indexes on any field of the document. These indexes are static and are there for all time. They are specified using the index definition language. The language allows specifying the fields to put an index on, the type of index to create, whether or not to use covering indexes, etc. The language also provides functions which can be used to manipulate data based on other data in the cplection. (Huang, 2014)

Thinkific is a platform that provides learning management systems. It was created by Thinkful which offers courses in web development, design and other technical skills. Thinkific provides a platform that helps people learn new skills through online courses. The platform was designed to make it easy for users to create their own online courses. (Thinkful, 2017)

Thinkific provides everything needed for creating an online course including hosting, marketing, payment processing, messaging tops etc. The platform also has a huge feature set including social media integrations, student analytics, course material creation tops and much more. (Thinkful, 2017)

Integration of MongoDB and Thinkific

In order to connect Thinkific with MongoDB, one needs to install a third party API that will connect the two together. The API can be installed in a few minutes and once done a developer can easily query the data in MongoDB from a Thinkific course. (Kawamoto, 2017)

MongoDB can be integrated with Thinkific through Mongoose API which is a NodeJS package that helps map MongoDB models to JavaScript classes for easy access from within an application. The API supports many features including authentication via OAuth2, support for Promises and callbacks, request throttling and more. (Kawamoto, 2017. Figure 1 shows the information flow from MongoDB to Thinkific when both are integrated using Mongoose API.
