mongodb-prebuilt-cross

badge

Install mongodb prebuilt binaries for command-line use using npm. This module helps you easily install the mongodb command for use on the command line without having to compile anything.

MongoDB is an open-source, document database designed for ease of development and scaling.

IMPORTANT: The main repository has no windows support and the maintainer seems to be inactive. Thanks @ralflizard for adding windows support. I will maintain this project so create an issue or PR ;)

Installation

Download and install the latest build of mongodb for your OS and add it to your projects package.json as a devDependency:

npm install mongodb-prebuilt-cross --save-dev

You can also use the -g flag (global) to symlink it into your PATH:

npm install -g mongodb-prebuilt-cross

If that command fails with an EACCESS error you may have to run it again with sudo:

sudo npm install -g mongodb-prebuilt

Now you can just run mongod to run mongodb:

mongod
