To connect to a MongoDB container using PyMongo with a URI, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install PyMongo:
    Make sure you have the PyMongo library installed. You can install it using pip:
   pip install pymongo
  1. Create a Python Script:
    Create a Python script (e.g., where you’ll write your code to connect to the MongoDB container.
  2. Import PyMongo:
    Import the necessary classes and methods from the pymongo library.
   from pymongo import MongoClient
  1. Set Up Connection URI:
    Construct a connection URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) that specifies the details of your MongoDB container. The URI format is as follows:

Replace the placeholders with your actual values. Here’s an example URI:

   uri = "mongodb://username:password@localhost:27017/mydatabase"
  1. Connect to MongoDB:
    Create a MongoClient object using the connection URI and then access the desired database:
   client = MongoClient(uri)
   database = client.get_database()
  1. Perform Database Operations:
    Now you can perform various database operations using the database object. For example, you can create collections, insert documents, query data, and more.
  2. Close Connection (Optional):
    When you’re done with your database operations, it’s a good practice to close the database connection:

Here’s an example script that puts it all together:

from pymongo import MongoClient

uri = "mongodb://username:password@localhost:27017/mydatabase"

def main():
    client = MongoClient(uri)
    database = client.get_database()

    # Perform database operations here


if __name__ == "__main__":

Remember to replace "username", "password", "localhost", "27017", and "mydatabase" with your actual MongoDB container information.

Note: Make sure your MongoDB container is up and running and reachable from your network. If your MongoDB container is running in a Docker container, ensure that you’ve properly set up port mapping and networking to allow external connections.
