MongoDB for VS Code

MongoDB for VS Code lets you easily work with MongoDB directly from your VS Code environment. Using the MongoDB extension, you can:

  • Connect to a MongoDB instance or cluster
  • Navigate your databases and collections
  • Prototype queries and aggregations

You can install the MongoDB extension from inside of VS Code via the VS Code Extension Marketplace. Help us improve the MongoDB for VS Code by posting your ideas and suggestions for improvements.

  1. Improvements to Terminal Shell (split)

    It would be nice that When the VSC extension is added, it creates an entry in the integrated terminal settings (terminal.integrated.automated.windows/mac) like: -

    "MongoDB": {
    "path": "mongo",
    "args": ["$Env:MDBCONNECTIONSTRING"]
    }

    Which I can't currently get to work.

    So that when I split a currently connected MongoDB intergrated terminal session, it spawns another mongo session with the same connection parameters at the same level.

    Also at the moment $Env:MDBCONNECTIONSTRING only seems to be set when the MongoDB:Launch MongoDB Shell is run, not when a connection is made to the a MongoDB server (connections).

    At the moment, if…

  2. Specify default database in Advanced Connection Settings form

    The Create New Connection using the Advanced Connection Settings form does not provide a place to specify a default database. I'm specifically interested in this so I like running selected lines and it'd be a way to not include 'use(<db>)' with every query.

  3. Linting/Validation support for query language

    It would be nice if MongoDB for VS Code had a built-in functionality to verify query syntax, best practices, etc.

    Conceptually, this would work similarly to how ESLINT works for JavaScript.

    would be nice to be able to filter by database/collection name in the connections panel, similar to what is found in MongoDB Compass.

  7. New Playground Result tab for each query

    When two playgrounds are run at once (e.g. two aggregations), the result of one overwrites the result of the other rather than opening a new 'Playground Result' tab.

    The desired behaviour is for a new Playground Result tab to be opened per run (preferably numbered 'Playground Result 1', 'Playground Result 2', etc.

  8. Open documents in the same tab

    Every time I want to check a doc, It opens it in a new tab Which makes it difficult to navigate across the workspace. I would recommend open docs in the same tab and maybe device some mechanism to open the docs in a new tab if the user wants to compare two or more of them.

  9. Handle 64bit numbers correctly

    Javascript doesn't support 64bit internally, so if I try in Chrome/console: x = 285870311191169181, it becomes 285870311191169180, and the same thing happens in VS Code.
    The solution would be to return a NumberLong("285870311191169181") text result.
    In fact, it seems to be an issue in Compass as well... but it works in mongo shell.
    Check the screenshot.

  11. Tree collapse/expand in the connections panel

    After opening a few options of the tree sometimes I want to collapse all and explore a completely different path, having the option to expand/collapse all would be neat!

  14. Kerberos Authentication for VSCode

    Hi,

    All our databases are secured using Kerberos authenticatoin. I do not see Kerberos/GSSAPI authentication option for this plugin. Looking forward to see this added to the plugin so that we can offer this to our developers. Compass supports Kerberos authentication so it should be an easy port to this plugin. I hope :)

    Thanks

  15. Improvements to Terminal Shell

    When a connection is setup, allow additional configuration for the Terminal Shell

    1. Allow a colour scheme for the shell, so that the user can set background/text colours, so red for LIVE. Very useful when on LIVE/TEST/DEV etc. A clear indication of where you are.

    2. Set a friendly name or full connection string for additional line in the terminal shell, so you can see where you are at all times, where you are connected to.

    You can have multiple shells connected at anyone time and again it helps to see what that shell is connected to.

    You only have to drop…

    "driver": "MariaDB",
    "server": "localhost",
    "previewLimit": 50,
    "port": 3306,

  18. Conditional confirmation prompt

  19. Allow launching mongodb shell with connections which are not currently connected

    Currently, it's possible to launch the MongoDB Shell from an active connection.

    It would be nice to have the action to launch a shell from also for inactive connections in the tree.

  20. Option to disable comments for aggregation stages

    Detailed Description

    Option to disable comments for aggregation stages by default. I would assume that link to documentation website will make more sense, considering complexity of aggregation stage use cases. And even that should be optional.

    Context

    I run a lot of quick aggregations to get data insights, comments are just wasting 50% of playground's screen space and not too helpful for me.
