This downloads a MongoDB release zip/tgz from fastdl.mongodb.org.

It is heavily influenced by electron-download and mongodb-download


Note: Requires Node >= 4.0 to run.

$ npm install --global mongodb-downloader
$ mongodb-download --version=3.6.0
const download = require('mongodb-downloader')

  version: '3.6.0',
  arch: 'ia32',
  platform: 'win32',
  cache: './archives'
}, function (err, archivePath) {
  // archivePath will be the path of the archive that it downloaded.
  // If the archive was already cached it will skip
  // downloading and call the cb with the cached archive path.
  // If it wasn't cached it will download the archive and save
  // it in the cache path.

If you don't specify arch or platform args it will use the built-in os module to get the values from the current OS. Specifying version is mandatory. If there is a SHASUMS256.txt file available for the version, the file downloaded will be validated against its checksum to ensure that it was downloaded without errors.

If you would like to override the mirror location, three options are available. The mirror URL is composed as url = MONGODB_MIRROR + '/' + MONGODB_CUSTOM_DIR + '/' + MONGODB_CUSTOM_FILENAME.

You can set the MONGODB_MIRROR or NPM_CONFIG_MONGODB_MIRROR environment variable or mirror opt variable to use a custom base URL for grabbing MONGODB zips. The same pattern applies to MONGODB_CUSTOM_DIR and MONGODB_CUSTOM_FILENAME:

or for a local mirror

MONGODB_MIRROR="" MONGODB_CUSTOM_DIR="our/internal/filePath"

You can set MONGODB_MIRROR in `.npmrc` as well, using the lowercase name:


Cache location

The location of the cache depends on the operating system, the defaults are:

  • Linux: $XDG_CACHE_HOME or ~/.cache/mongodb/
  • MacOS: ~/Library/Caches/mongodb/
  • Windows: $LOCALAPPDATA/mongodb/Cache or ~/AppData/Local/mongodb/Cache/

You can set the MONGODB_CACHE environment variable to set cache location explicitly.
