  1. Dark Theme is not that cool

    The background colour combination of the compass's dark theme stings like a thorn in the eyes.

  2. Always select focused collection in sidebar navigation (Compass)

    In the UI of the Compass interface, users navigate through databases and collections primarily via the sidebar. However, there's an aspect of user experience that can be enhanced. Specifically, I am proposing a feature where the sidebar navigation dynamically reflects and highlights the database or collection that is currently in focus in the main tab area.

    This means, that when a user selects and works on a particular database or collection, that specific item should automatically become highlighted or marked in the sidebar.

  4. Auto-expand single/specified database

    Upon connecting to a server, I would like Compass to auto-expand the database in the sidebar if:
    - the database name is in the connection string
    - and/or if there is a single database on the server (that is accessible to the user)

    It would save a click :)

  6. MacOS Scroll bars - show according to MacOS settings

    You can view the list of indexes, but there is no scroll bar on the right side to show there are more indexes in the list. The scroll bar pops up when you hover on the list.

    In MacOS settings you can set if you want this behaviour or if you want the scroll bar to always show.

    Think it is like this in english MacOS:
    system settings -> look and feel -> show scroll bars -> always

    The idea is to honor this setting.

    I use MacOS 14.2, Dark mode. Compass Dark mode is a setting that already works…

  7. Let me resize my window to be 960 pixels wide.

    I often arrange my windows so that I have one application on the left side of my desktop screen and another application on the right side. But MongoDB Compass won't allow me to resize the window to be that small. My screen is 1920 pixels wide (a very common resolution) and it won't let me resize my window to half of that width (1920 / 2 = 960 pixels) to make it fit neatly on half of my screen. The current minimum width seems to be about 1011 pixels -- too big, overlapping windows on the other half of the…

  8. Support for linux/aarch64

    Asahi linux has been gaining some traction. Its a linux distribution based on the ARM architecture, specifically Apple Silicon. Since we already create a binary for Aarch64 for MacOS, would it be possible to make a release for aarch64 for linux as well!?

  9. Unproductiveness is getting worse and worse

    Though we a conversation regarding annoying "what's new" messages, the situation is really getting worse. Even so bad, I am considering paying for a 3rd party tool. But my in vest on your product is taking my time to give this feedback, in order to improve your product.

    The latest message that is keeping me away from beeing productive is this message coming up when entering a value for "skip" at the query options field.=> "Use natural language to generate queries and pipelines

  11. Clarify release flavours

    On Github there are multiple versions of the .deb package, e.g. -readonly or -isolated

    Please clarify in the Readme.md in the mongodb-js/compass Github repository what these are and which one should be used in which scenario.

  12. Default connection selection on startup screen.

    Currently there is no default connection setting, when I start the program I am greeted with the new connection dialog. I do not find this very useful especially with a stable environment, how often do you use new connection against saved ones.

  15. How about making your installer do something when you prompt to install an update

    I get prompted every day by Compass telling me there is an update to install. When you agree to install the update, nothing happens! I cannot say that I have EVER seen the installer work outside of doing a winget installation or going to your website and downloading the installer. If you are going to waste our time every time we open Compass, then stop asking us to do an upgrade! VERY ANNOYING!!!!!

  16. Connection dashboard should be always available

    Once connected to one of my favourite connections in the Mac app I would like the ability to disconnect, or close, or minimise, which would then take me back to the Connections dashboard i.e. the screen initially presented when opening the Compass app.

    Right now, when I've connected, the only way to get back to the connections dashboard is to close the connected window and open the Compass app again. So I can't have multiple connections either.

  17. Rename Compass Tabs

    Add the ability to rename the tabs.
    Compass automatically names the tabs based on the functionality that is currently used like aggregation, documents, etc...
    When working with multiple tabs it would be nice to be able to name them so that you can easily identify the one you want.
