Run MongoDB and Set up Required Accounts

Let's get our MongoDB running and our GitHub and Zomato accounts ready for API setup.

Running MongoDB

To set up our API, we’ll first need to install the MongoDB database. This has already been done here, but we can verify that it’s working properly by running the terminal widget below. It will automatically run the mongod command and some text will be logged in the terminal window.

Now we need to start the mongo shell. Open another terminal in the widget and run the mongo command. Notice the text logged to the terminal window.
