Introducing MongoDB for VS Code

Yesterday, we announced MongoDB for VS Code, an extension that allows you to quickly connect to MongoDB and MongoDB Atlas and work with your data to build applications right inside your code editor. With MongoDB for VS Code you can:

  • Connect to a MongoDB or Atlas cluster, navigate through your databases and collections, get a quick overview of your schema, and see the documents in your collections;
  • Create MongoDB Playgrounds, the fastest way to prototype CRUD operations and MongoDB commands;
  • Quickly access the MongoDB Shell, to launch the MongoDB Shell from the command palette and quickly connect to the active cluster.
  • Bootstrap your Terraform configuration for Atlas, using the official MongoDB Atlas Terraform Provider.

MongoDB for VS Code is open-source under the Apache 2 license. You can install it directly from the VS Code marketplace.

You can read the full announcement on the MongoDB blog.

Try it today and let us know what you think!


Great news that you have delivered on the promise from last years Local event.

What is your roadmap for the extension? I can see on the Blog plost some suggestions already.

In the near future, we will likely be working on improvements to what we just launched and probably start looking into document editing.

If you have suggestions or ideas you can submit them here:
