That's a fair question and the answer is actually pretty simple, when I started MongoFramework that didn't actually exist.

I don't have the exact date when I started MongoFramework but according to the side project that I spun MongoFramework off of, I can trace it back to the beginning of when I was tracking it in Git (July 2016). MongoFramework then hit Github in January 2017.

The repo you've linked to has its origins dating back to March 2017.

In my article about MongoFramework the other day, I actually did a little research into what the state is of alternatives and actually found that same repo.

I might look into contributing to that repository where I can though in the mean time, I will be supporting MongoFramework unless it becomes a bigger burden of itself.

Part of the reason for that is my side project depends on MongoFramework and while I could change it, I don't want to change it for the sake of it currently.

Sure... any OSS (libraries) starts by solving a problem in an internal project, then it gets into a public repo!

What I really would hope to is using this library when it's mature, not just for mongo, but for any documentdb (as dynamodb / firebase) within the EFCore interface, that's why I would love to see you both of you working on it together :)
