Import and export data into mongodb using mongobackup. This grunt task is a simple wrapper around mongodump and mongorestore. It's a great way to configure your backups and share data.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt `~0.4.5
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-mongo-backup --save-dev

Once the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-mongo-backup');

      dump:{
        out : './dump',
      },    
      restore:{
