To my suprise, it is actually super easy to install MongoDB if you have brew installed:

brew install mongodb

Then, you have to set a path for MongoDB to store its data:

mkdir -p ~/data/db          # <- create a folder at any location
mongod --dbpath ~/data/db   # <- let mongodb know where you created the folder
mongod                      # <- run MongoDB server, use Ctrl + C to terminate it

To connect to the MongoDB server, open another terminal window:


That's it!

To import a JSON file into MongoDB:

mongoimport --db *database_name* --collection *collection_name* --type json --file *file.json*

For example:

mongoimport --db test --collection beijing --type json --file beijing_map.json
