Robomongo & 3T

The Robomongo tool has been acquired by 3T Software Labs, the creators of Studio 3T (formerly MongoChef). 3T will continue development of Robomongo in parallel with its own MongoDB GUI and the good news is that it will be making Robomongo free for all users from now on. This is an exciting new step for Robomongo and its community, which will benefit users and the wider MongoDB ecosystem.

“I know the guys at 3T well and I know they’ll do a great job of taking Robomongo forward — I can’t wait to see the tool develop further through their backing and the support of the great Robomongo community!”

Native and cross-platform MongoDB manager

Whatever platform you use today — Robomongo is available for you. Distributed as a native application, fast and snappy Robomongo uses very little of your machine resources.

Innovative and inspiring project

Since it was launched, Robomongo has provided an open source MongoDB tool that provides innovative functionality to meet the needs of enthusiasts and the wider community.

Embeds real MongoDB shell

Robomongo doesn't emulate the MongoDB shell, it embeds the same engine and environment, that is a part of mongo shell. Currently it embeds the latest MongoDB 3.2 shell.

Provides real autocompletion

Robomongo not only analyzes the semantic of the code, but also executes it in an internal JavaScript VM, allowing us to give you a runtime autocompletion that is impossible to obtain statically.

Fully asynchronous, non-blocking UI

All operations that you perform on MongoDB are done asynchronously and do not block main application thread. This makes Robomongo feel light and snappy.

Built on top of the established, powerful and open source projects, Robomongo is grateful to the worldwide community of creative and open minded people that support the tool. We are also happy to give something back to you.

It doesn't matter whether you want to use Robomongo for education, your hobby project or for commercial use — Robomongo will always be free and open source.


The document-oriented database that we all fell in love with. Robomongo integrates with MongoDB's shell to give you full power over stock tools.


Cross-platform application framework that is used to create native application for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.


Set of libraries for the C++ programming language. It is used both by the MongoDB database and Robomongo.


JavaScript engine, that is used by the MongoDB shell prior to 2.4 version.


Powerful source code editor and viewer, that is specially designed to handle tens of megabytes of text as efficiently as possible.


High performance, standard-compliant JavaScript parser, written in JavaScript. Used by Robomongo to understand code semantic.


Instrumentation framework, that helps Robomongo to avoid memory leaks and threading issues.


Popular cross-platform build system, designed to build, test and package software.

Does this mean the end of Robomongo as a free, open source tool?
Absolutely not. 3T has committed to continue development of Robomongo in parallel with its own Studio 3T IDE for MongoDB and will continue to support all existing Robomongo users, both free and paid for.
I recently bought/renewed my Robomongo subscription. Can I get a refund?
All customers who started or renewed a subscription with Robomongo in the last sixty days will be entitled to a refund (all transactions on or after 10-January-2017). On top of this, any live Robomongo subscribers who wish to transfer their licence into a three year licence for the Studio 3T Pro edition will be able to do so at no additional cost. Just visit the Robomongo site and sign in to register for your refund and/or a transfer of your license.
Have you shared my personal details with 3T Software Labs?
No. No personal details of any Robomongo customers have been shared or will be shared with anyone outside Robomongo. We will provide all subscribers with a contact address for 3T Software so you can register for your free upgrade to a 3 year licence for Studio 3T Pro if you wish to do so. But there is no obligation.
Will 3T continue to develop Robomongo?
Yes. We are putting the finishing touches to Robomongo 1.0 and plan to make it available within the next couple of weeks. The team is already working on adding MongoDB 3.4 compatibility and we will release the update as soon as it's ready.
Will the existing team of Robomongo developers continue to work on the tool?
Absolutely, the existing team of Paralect developers (including Dmitry) will work together with 3T’s experienced development team for the next six months to ensure a smooth handover for Robomongo.
Robomongo being open-source, I want to contribute to its codebase. Can I still do this?
Yes pull requests are very welcome! Pull requests will be reviewed and then, after a positive review, merged into the code base.
