USAGE

IMPORTANT: You moled database naming is important here, as Wackamole is setup to snif out the moled application
databases using the prefix 'mole_'. So you must name your mole databases according to this convention. ie
mole_{app_name}_{environment}_mdb ie mole_fred_development_mdb

Configure It!

You will need to give wackamole some information about your rackamole configuration. 
In order to do so create a .wackamole directory in your home directory and create 
a file wackamole.yml. You will need to specify the envs, host and ports specific
to your configuration, but here is a sample.

wackamole.yml  
  development:
    host: localhost
    port: 27017

  beta:
    host:     beta_host_name
    port:     27017
    user:     bobo
    password: secret

Launch It!

Watch your creation live!
