MongoDB Shell

The MongoDB Shell (mongosh) lets you connect to MongoDB to work with your data and configure your database.

Help us improve the MongoDB Shell by posting your ideas and suggestions for improvements.

To report bugs, please use our MONGOSH JIRA project.

  1. Support .mongorc.js file

    A core bit of functionality from the original shell is to support reading from the .mongorc.js file in a user's home directory. This feels like core functionality that mongosh should support.

  3. Ability to execute a javascript file from inside the shell

    Currently the only way to execute a javascript file from the mongo shell is to re-direct the input at shell login time (e.g. mongo --username <username> ... < myscript.js). It would be helpful to have a way to execute the script from inside the shell via some sort of "run" command (e.g.from inside the shell "run /my/path/myscript.js".

  4. creating an option to import csv files with semicolon separator

    There isn't an option to specify semicolon as delimiter on mongo shell when importing csv files. We are forced to import through MongoDB Compass when file has semicolon separator.

    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…
