Whether you were looking for a MongoDB client or MongoDB GUI for Linux, we’re glad you’ve found our MongoDB IDE, Studio 3T!

Studio 3T is distributed as a gzipped tarball (.tar.gz). We follow a common directory pattern on Linux in that Studio 3T’s root directory contains a “bin” folder that contains a runnable .sh file that starts Studio 3T.

To install Studio 3T, open your shell and cd to a directory of your choice. There, unpack and run Studio 3T like so:

For the 64-bit version of Studio 3T 3.5.0 for example:

$ tar -xvzf studio-3t-linux-x64-dist.tar.gz
$ ./studio-3t-3.5.0-linux-x64-dist/bin/studio-3t.sh

For the 32-bit version of Studio 3T 3.5.0 for example:

$ tar -xvzf studio-3t-linux-x86-dist.tar.gz
$ ./studio-3t-3.5.0-linux-x86-dist/bin/studio-3t.sh

Once you’re done installing Studio 3T on Linux, read our Getting Started guide, then jump right into using its wonderful features like Table ViewIntelliShellSQL Query – just to name a few 🙂
