- Link to Binary Data: MongoDB Compass vs Robo 3T vs Local Mongo Shell podcast on anchorfm
Lately, I have been working on a backend
REST API using Node.js, Express, and MongoDB. My initial go-to for accessing my
local database was the
Mongo Shell and
MongoDB Compass. However, at one point I was working with
MongoDB Compass was not able to provide me with the complete
binary data. It was too long for it to handle! It only provided me with a small, initial chunk. And BTW, the
binary data is too long to show up completely in
Terminal as well.
So I switched to
Robo 3T, which IS able to handle
data. What did I learn from this? Perhaps when working
Robo 3T is better to use, but when working in production,
MongoDB Compass is better.
I will be embedding this episode of Plugging in The Holes along with a transcript in the form of a post on interglobalmedianetwork.com for your hearing and reading pleasure. Bye for now!
