It is very useful to run
meteor mongo and query collections from the command line, for debugging purposes, etc.
Recently, I have added the
collectionFS package to enable image storage in the database. However, I am unable to query the database from the command line.
db.fs.collection_name.find() is not doing the trick, and I can't seem to find the correct command anywhere.
Best How To :
Go to the Meteor Mongo console:
See all the collections that are available:
Look for the one that has
Choose the one that has your collection name. For example, I'm using collectionFS with gridFS for images. When I type
show collections, I see
cfs_gridfs.images.files so I just do:
db.cfs_gridfs.images.files.find() to see those files.
Hope that helps.
