It does not embed a MongoDB Server. Therefore, you first have to install MongoDB with HomeBrew.

$brew install mongodb


  1. Download the latest version:
  2. Unzip
  3. Double click on MongoDB.prefPane. This will install it in your System Preferences

Note: To Mountain Lion users. This application is presently not on the app store and therefore it is not signed. You can still install it but don't be surprised to have an alert about it.
