Node.js is a JavaScript runtime environment. Which makes it possible for back-end developers to use JS on server-side development of an app and APIs.

How can you use MongoDB with Nodejs?

1. Go through the setup process

2. Install Node.js

The Node.js version has to be compatible with MongoDB.

3. Install the MongoDB Node.js Driver

This driver will help you interact easily with MongoDB from within Node.js apps. To install the driver correctly, read the official documentation.

4. Create a MongoDB Atlas cluster and load data

Using Atlas will be super easy as it is MongoDB’s fully-managed database-as-a-service. Create a cluster in the Atlas tier. After it has been created, you can upload data.

5. Get info about cluster connection

In Atlas, go to the cluster. Click connect to open up The Cluster Connection Wizard. Add your current IP address and create a MongoDB user. Further, connect the app by selecting the node driver version.

6. Connect to your database from a Node.js application

  • Import MongoClient
  • Create the main function
  • List the databases in the cluster
  • Save the File
  • Execute the Node.js Script
