This post is a summary of the steps needed to build the MongoDB C++ driver with Mingw64.
It is cute (some pronounce Qt like so), portable, efficient, incredibly powerful and it is written in standards compliant C++. That is why I’m using Qt, in a nutshell.
I’ve recently been tasked with writing a web application and http server for an embedded (ARM) environment. My main constraint was keeping the code space small.
I’ve found that there are only a few examples showing how to use MongoDB’s C++ client driver with a connection pool. Now for most applications a pool won’t be necessary, but in my case I needed to have multiple concurrent connections to a MongoDB server.
I have had the need for a simple logger for my C++ programs for a long time. About a year ago I decided to write my own.
