How to install Robo3T(Formerly RobMongo) on Ubuntu

Robo3T formerly known as RobMongo is one of best GUI tools for the managing and querying MongoDB database. I have been using it quite often for creating applications with MongoDB and Node.js. Recently a new version made available but there were no instructions for installing it on Ubuntu. So I thought it would be a great idea to write a blog post about it.

To install it. First, we need to open terminal and download tar.gz file from official site with the following command.
wget https://download.robomongo.org/1.2.1/linux/robo3t-1.2.1-linux-x86_64-3e50a65.tar.gz
robo3t-install-download-ubuntu

Once download will complete we need to extract tar.gz file with following command
tar -xvzf robo3t-1.2.1-linux-x86_64-3e50a65.tar.gz
extract-tar-file-robo3t-robmongo-ubuntu

As now we have extract it into the folder we need to move that under /usr/local/bin directory to make it available for all the users. So todo that we need to first create robo3t directly under /usr/local/bin folder with following command.
sudo mkdir /usr/local/bin/robo3t
mkdir-robo3t-robmongo-ubuntu

Then we need to move all the files of extracted folder into robo3t folder under /usr/local/bin directory with following command.
sudo mv  robo3t-1.2.1-linux-x86_64-3e50a65/* /usr/local/bin/robo3t
move-content-to-robo35-ubuntu

Now, We need to give permission to newly created directory with following command.
sudo chmod +x robo3t ./robo3t
permission-robo3t-robmongo-ubuntu

Once you are done with it. You are ready to use robo3t. You can run it from command line from usr/local/bin directory via following command.
./robo3t
run-robo35-command-line

And it will run the Robo3t like following.

robo3t-on-ubuntu

That’s it. Hope you like, Stay tuned for more!!.
