  1. syntax issues

    I have to use '.\mongosh' rather than '.\mongo' when using Power Shell windows
    Might be useful since the switch to mongoshell

  2. remove case sensitivity from tab search of commands

    currently mongosh uses case sensitive search of command on double tapping the tab key.

    While it seems adequate at first, entering a capital letter requires 2 key presses and it becomes annoying pretty fast for the good old mongo shell users.

  3. Retain multi-line input in history.

    Ideally, when using an inline text editor, the inline text editor would show the history command with its multi-lines retained.

  5. Paginate shell output

    When running a query or a command that returns a long output, the content scrolls off the screen and cannot be seen without using the terminal scrollbar.

    It would be nice if the content would only scroll to screen boundaries and pause like more or less.

  6. Vi mode for MongoDB Shell

    Please enable a 'vi' editing mode for the mongo shell.

    A first cut of key bindings would be:

    Basic command mode/editing mode toggling:
    i Insert before cursor
    Esc Toggle to command mode

    Cursor motion keys:
    h Move left
    j Move down
    k Move up
    l Move right

    w Move to next word
    b Move to the beginning of the word

    0 Move to the beginning of the line
    $ Move to the end of the line

    And delete/change:
    x delete next character to the right
    d

    {motion} delete amount specified by…
