TingoDB API is designed to be compatible with NodeJS driver for MongoDB. The difference is only in initialization and obtaining of Db instance object.

If you not want to drill down to details just install it:

npm install tingodb

And use:

var Engine = require('tingodb')();

var db = new Engine.Db('/some/local/path', {});

The rest is plain MongoDB API !
