Is there some visual program that allows me to look at my mongo database like mqSQL or is mongo shell the only option?
Something like mqSQL maybe. Where you can just click on whatever you want to see and do as opposed to mongo shell where you type your commands?
Was just wondering, its no big deal but it would be nice if something like that existed.
Solution: Nevermind. Mongodb Compass. Found it.

Um , I think your over complicating it. Its just a file thats all. when you make a database it makes a blank.sql file I write them myself with a mysql work bench

You can get a free mongo account and create a database in Atlas or Compass. I connected to my account on Atlas. The connection string is a bit more complex, because it will have your username and password as well as a url to the cluster its on, but it's not terribly difficult to set up.
