Gettin down with MongoDB on OS X

This weekend I decided to get MongoDB up and running.  Setting up the environment was very simple using MacPorts.  Just make sure you’ve got the Java Developer Package for Mac OS X.  A simple  $ sudo port install mongodb and I was up and running.  I’d recommend setting up a shell alias for starting the mongo listener and connecting to a mongo db in your .bash_profile located in the root directory.  Mine looks like this:

alias startmongo='/opt/local/bin/mongod'
alias runmongo='/opt/local/bin/mongo'

What can I say, I’m lazy.
