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.

  1. 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.

  2. Ability to select a specific property to display in the sidebar document list

    Make it possible to select (and remember for each collection) a property to display in the list of documents, instead of the standard '_id' property (For example: 'name' property, instead of '_id')

  4. ability to run to a specified aggregation stage and see output

    Essentially the same as https://mongoplayground.net/

    if you add multiple aggregation stages you can pick which one you want to run up to, and inspect the output.

    This makes it dramatically easier to tweak larger pipelines without having to comment further stages out.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  12. predefined connections array on settings, this helps on devcontainer setups alot

    sqltools is already using similar idea to handle connections
    "sqltools.connections": [
    {
    "name": "Container database",
    "driver": "MariaDB",
    "server": "localhost",
    "previewLimit": 50,
    "port": 3306,
    "database": "....",
    "username": ".....",
    "password": "....."

  13. Improve Performance of Result Display - Stream Results to JSON Display

    It looks like currently the playground results don't appear until the full set is collected from the server. This is extremely slow sometimes depending on the latency to the cluster and document size.
    As soon as you have one document returned in the cursor, you can start showing the data in the results panel write the JSON streaming fashion as each document is deserialized.

  15. show last 'n' entires

    An option to show last 'n' records. Currently, we have an option to see 10 at a time and then click on 'show more' for every 10 records which is tedious. An option to show last n would help a lot.

  16. Write playground as TypeScript file

    Feature Request

    It would be nice to write MongoDB playground in Typescript, then we will have design time validation and good suggestions in IDE.

    Detailed Description

    It would be awesome to have types for MongoDB interfaces and the ability to import your own types.

    import {Sale} from './types';
    
    use('mongodbVSCodePlaygroundDB');
    
    const sales: Sale[] = [
      { 'item': 'abc', 'price': 10, 'quantity': 2, 'date': new Date('2014-03-01T08:00:00Z') },
      { 'item': 'jkl', 'price': 20, 'quantity': 1, 'date': new Date('2014-03-01T09:00:00Z') },
      { 'item': 'xyz', 'price': 5, 'quantity': 10, 'date': new Date('2014-03-15T09:00:00Z') },
      { 'item': 'xyz', 'price': 5, 'quantity': 20, 'date': new Date('2014-04-04T11:21:39.736Z') },
      { 'item':

  17. Separate Terminal Instances for Different Playground Scripts

    Currently, when running multiple scripts, all output is directed to the same terminal.
    This could lead to a lot of confusion and difficulty in tracking the progress of individual scripts, especially when they are running concurrently.

    For example, when running two scripts that both output progress percentages, the output in the terminal looks like this:
    Progress: [====== ] 13.70%
    Progress: [===== ] 11.37%
    Progress: [====== ] 13.71%
    Progress: [===== ] 11.37%

    It's challenging to distinguish which progress percentage corresponds to which script. This issue is exacerbated when more scripts are running simultaneously.

  18. Allow specifying connection string via an environment variable

    I have a local replica set that's using randomized ports which results in a non-deterministic connection string, but I have it stored in an environment variable that I use to connect via the shell.

  20. Configurable playground name/path

    Currently, only files ending with .mongodb or .mongodb.js are considered playgrounds. It would be helpful if this was more configurable, perhaps a regex that could be compared against the file path/name so we could consider all files within a folder as playgrounds.
