Python MongoDB to connect, create database, and collection using PyMongo distribution
In the following program, database and collection automatically get created. If database and collection already exist in MongoDB, then new documents will get inserted into an existing collection.
import pymongo
from pymongo import MongoClient
print("Connection Established")

# client=MongoClient('localhost',27017)
# db=client.DB
# collection=db.holders


'account_no': 2562348989,
'name': 'James Moore',
'bank': 'Barclays',
'amount': 5000

print("\nCollection Name(s): ",db.list_collection_names())
# print(db.holders.find_one())
print("\nFirst document key: {}".format(doc.inserted_id))
kodingwindow@kw:~$ python3 kw.py
Connection Established

Collection Name(s):  ['holders']
