How to run mongo shell

Hello there,

i am currently on “Find command” in chapter 2 where you suddenly jump into mongo shell and I have no idea how you did that. I tried to install MongoDB compass but no luck - connection timed out.

Is there anything I can do?

Hi @Erik_Demko,

The IDE, is in one of the lessons, so to speak.

You’ll find a bash shell with all binaries already installed.

Hi Santiago,

thank you for your quick response. Does it mean that to access shell i have to visit that one particular lesson each time?

Ah, I see… I can access In-Browser IDE only when the lesson requires to do so

Yes, you can visit the IDE anytime, and there are several chapters with IDEs. All work the same.

You can also install mongo locally, but that’s (probably) unnecessary overhead for the first course
