API question: Can I just set it in the console?

Hi all,
super new to Mongo and also to Databases.
Just a quick question: Can I use my DataBase directly to answer api queries? Maybe just clicking something int the console?

You can use Atlas for minimal code apis

Failing that youll need to get hands dirty with some code.

Its not that clear what you actually want to do…

Thank you for answering John

Well, I only need people to connect and READ the data. Same daily data, simple query, just some thousand people.

Maybe it’s enough?
Becase if I use code, I must place it somewhere…
