# The meteor.com Hot Dump 2-step
# Dump a mongo db from a live meteor app to a local dump dir.
#
# Splits up the output of:
# meteor mongo $METEOR_DOMAIN --url
# and pushes it into
# mongodump -u $MONGO_USER -h $MONGO_DOMAIN -d $MONGO_DB -p "${MONGO_PASSWORD}"
#
# Doing so by hand is tedious as the password in the url is only valid for 60 seconds.
#
# Requires
# - meteor (tested on 0.5.9)
# - mongodb (tested in 2.4.0)
#
# Usage
# ./meteor-dump.sh goto
#
# If all goes well it'll create a dump folder in the current working directory.

To get the dump imported into your local dev mongodb, you can:

   mongorestore dump

where dump is the name of the dir containing the dumped data that should have been created by running the script.

You can then take a peak around your local mongos with the finely crafted: http://genghisapp.com/

Tested and works on meteor 0.8.0.1

Does this work on meteor 0.8.3 ?

This actually works on Meteor 0.8.3
In order to load the data in this dump we have to use "mongorestore" instead of mongoimport (Just saying)
Thanks!!!
