how to clear console in mongodb
While using Mongodb console or shell sometimes my screen is cluttered with a lot of previous output which I do not need. So, is there a function to clear console in MongoDb?
Something like analog of clear in matlab. I have tried clc, clear but with no success.
Judging by Jira they have done it: You need to write cls in the shell.
You can also use a hotkey: CTRL + L.
In macOS: Command + K.
Check more hotkeys for the shell here.
If you are using MongoDB 2.0 or higher, the mongo shell supports both:
- cls command
- Ctrl+l (clear screen)
Note that both of these clear the screen and put the cursor at the top .. but you can still scrollback to see previous history.
In OS X Terminal.app you can also do:
- Command+K (clear scrollback)
Clearing the screen and/or scrollback buffer are independent of the history, so you can still cursor up/down to run previous commands.
