Version numbers

Version numbers of this project (mongoDB.app) try to communicate the included version of the included mongoDB binaries bundled with each release.

The version number also includes a build number which is used to indicate the current version of mongoDB.app and it's independent from the bundled mongoDB's version.

Adding mongo binaries to your path

If you need to add the mongoDB binaries to your path you can do so by adding the following to your ~/.bash_profile.

# Add mongoDB.app binaries to path
export PATH="/Applications/MongoDB.app/Contents/Resources/Vendor/mongodb/bin:$PATH"

Or using the path_helper alternative:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/paths.d &&
echo /Applications/MongoDB.app/Contents/Resources/Vendor/mongodb/bin | sudo tee /etc/paths.d/mongodbapp

Installing with Homebrew Cask

You can also install MongoDB.app with Homebrew Cask.

$ brew cask install mongodb
