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.


To report bugs, please use our VSCODE JIRA project.

  2. Driver templates in VSCode

    It would be great if the VSCode Extension automatically generated boilerplate code (JS, Java, Python, C#, Go) based on the file type.

  3. Connection & DB colors

    please add connection and database coloring which applies to explore list, opened tabs and playground files. Intellij and Navicat both support this feature which prevents any confusion about test and deployment server.

  4. Reuse db connection

    It's much slower than other mongodb clients like Robo 3t every time I run a query, it seems that it create a new connection to the database and then executes the query. Is there any way to keep and reuse an existed connection so that to speed up the query executions?

  5. Change Object ID display format from '{$oid: 'xxxx'}' to ObjectId('xxxxx')

    It just uses only 1 line instead 3 lines. And we can copy it directly.

  8. Intellisense for playground code

    Hovering over getCollection and other supported methods doesn't show any intellisense. This would save us time from having to go to the docs and looking that method up. Also the sort method which I think its a normal JavaScript method doesn't show intellisense inside playground so please add some intellisense.

  9. Better Failed to Connect Error Message

    Currently, I get Failed to connect: connection <monitor> to X.Y.Z.W:27017 closed. It would be helpful to tell the user why that is or give a hint as to why the problem occurred. I have to keep it in the back of my mind that most of the time the issue is because my IP changed and my atlas doesn't have my ip whitelisted.

  10. Set a default connection or auto detect a running MongoDB session

    Automatically set up a connection via the MongoDB Extension instead of pasting the connection string manually every time.

    Either by
    1. detecting a running mongo session
    2. Loading default connections, from a place on the system

  11. Connection based "theming"

    Add the ability to color code playground tab and/or editor's background color in the playground based on the connection that is active.

    Eg: default background for my localhost connection and a more colorful one for staging environment or production ones even.

  12. Use Ctr-Enter to execute instuction where the cursor is.

    Currently, is kind of tedius to execute a targeted line. Other editors accept Ctl-Enter to execute the line, which is very convenient.

  13. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. We do not have to repeat use('db') every time

    After executing use('db') we don't need to include the command with each run, especially when we want to run the selected line.

    At present, if I run some selected lines to run from play ground it doesn't works if the lines doesn't includes the use('db') command.
