  • 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. Add syntax checking for JS and JSON

    The editor does not sense and redline JSON syntax errors. To work around this, I switch the file association to “JavaScript” whenever I am seriously editing a pipeline. Then I switch the file association back to “MongoDB” just before testing/executing the pipeline. This is inconvenient.
