Install MongoDB on Mac OS X

- JavaScript, development, Homebrew — 1 min read

I've been playing around with MongoDB for IPOfest. It's a perfect match for a JavaScript developer because you can just store and access straight JSON.

First install Homebrew, then in the terminal run:

brew update
brew install mongodb

That's it! Pretty simple huh? If you want to actually run it, including creating databases, read more in the official MongoDB documentation.
