Be More Productive with
MongoDB & Prisma

Bring your developer experience to the next level. Prisma makes it easier than ever to work with your MongoDB database and enables you to query data with confidence.

What is Prisma?

Prisma is an open-source ORM that drastically simplifies data modeling, migrations, and data access for SQL databases in Node.js and TypeScript.

Query
// Creating a new record
await prisma.user.create({
firstName: “Alice”,
email: “alice@prisma.io”
})
Table
id firstName email
1 Bobby bobby@tables.io
2 Nilufar nilu@email.com
3 Jürgen jums@dums.edu
4 Alice alice@prisma.io

How Prisma and MongoDB Fit Together

MongoDB is a powerful NoSQL database that allows developers to intuitively work with their data. However, due to its schemaless nature, developers may run into data inconsistencies as they’re evolving their applications.

Prisma is a next-generation ORM/ODM that makes it easier to ensure data consistency by providing an easy-to-read schema and a type-safe database client with auto-completion for all queries.

Reading data in MongoDB with Prisma Client

Prisma Client provides a powerful API for reading data in MongoDB, including filters, pagination, ordering and relational queries for embedded documents and reference-based relations.

1const usersWithProfile = await prisma.user.findMany({
2 where: {
3 profile: {
4 isSet: true,
5 },
6 },
7 select: {
8 id: true,
9 profile: {
10 select: {
11 profilePicture: true,
12 },
13 },
14 posts: {
15 where: {
16 published: true,
17 },
18 },
19 },
20 take: 10,
21 orderBy: {
22 profile: {
23 firstName: "asc",
24 },
25 },

“We believe that the combination of MongoDB Atlas Serverless and Prisma Data Proxy will greatly simplify the process of building and deploying serverless applications in the cloud, especially for workloads that need to scale to high connection counts.”
