official Dart driver
We use mongo in weebi Dart / Flutter application.
We would be eternally grateful if you could implement an official Dart Driver,
There is already an unofficial mongo dart repo :
The specific feature we need is Ejson
Thank you for building a great tool
Thank you for your feedback. We are currently considering this project. If you would like to add more specific feedback about your use case/needs, please reach out via email.
This is one of the few things we're waiting for to being developing back-end services in dart. It's been under review for a while new, any updates?
It would be great if you can also add widgets like FirestoreListView that will take care of pagination or cursor on scrolling. I have implemented this feature but it would be great if such features/widgets are made available officially by MongoDB team. Third party packages like mongo_dart are useful but cannot be relied on for long.
Flutter is a great and popular solution for developing mobile and web apps. Being able to use mongoDB would be fantastic, so I strongly encourage the MongoDB team to consider the addition of Dart as one of the supported languages.
Due to the unofficial mongo_dart not supporting the 'web' backend we cannot use mongoDB in our application, which would be our first preference.
We are in the same needs as posted by Rui. We need Mongo - Dart drivers (NOT Realm drivers) able to do such things or we will be forced to redirect our db logic towards other NoSql providers, and this would be a shame... MongoDb is so good and it's a pity to not use it, but business is business, you know...
dart is as promising on the backed as is on the frontend. Having a high quality dart driver for mongo will defiitely be helpful
This is very important for MongoDB also because Flutter is used for all platforms (Android, iOS, Web, Linux, Windows, macOS and in future, Fuchsia also.) apps. Firebase is also creating driver for desktop.

hi, I saw you released a realm db for dart and flutter apps, what about official mongo db drive to connect to server side mongo instance, I think tones if peoples want this feature, Firestone got an amazing sdk but if I don't want to switch to Firestore I need really good driver for this.

Rachelle you are probably posting the reply to the wrong thread.
The OP clearly state "Mongo" driver as he also mentioned a community-maintained driver as an example.
But the repository you posted is "Realm" driver, which is not the same product.
Hello Rachelle, If I understand, realm is a mobile database, while dart driver allows you to connect to a MongoDB instance on the server-side. How is this related? Thank you.

Hello all, this has been released - please check it out and let us know your feedback. https://github.com/realm/realm-dart
Any update about this? A huge army of dart/flutter devs are waiting for this :) Thank you.
I also suggest release a dart driver. Its important if MongoDB wants to increase its presence in cross-platform mobile applications.
