MongoChef is now Studio 3T. Learn more HERE!

On Linux, Studio 3T (formerly MongoChef) is distributed as a gzipped tarball (.tar.gz). We follow a common directory pattern on Linux in that MongoChef’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 mongochef-linux-x64-dist.tar.gz
$ ./mongochef-3.5.0-linux-x64-dist/bin/mongochef.sh

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

$ tar -xvzf mongochef-linux-x86-dist.tar.gz
$ ./mongochef-3.5.0-linux-x86-dist/bin/mongochef.sh
