Hello there! Welcome back to our series, "Generated by AI, Deployed on Catalyst." We're excited to continue providing cutting-edge step-by-step tutorials to create and deploy apps for popular use cases on Catalyst in less than 5 minutes.

For this tutorial, you can learn how to connect to a database in MongoDB Atlas using Catalyst—just follow these easy steps or refer to the video here:

Step 1: Sign up for a free MongoDB Atlas account and create a cluster and database to connect to. If you have an existing database, you can skip this step.


Step 2: Generate a code in Postman to connect to the database using an API request


Step 3: Initialize a Catalyst project using the CLI. If you haven't installed the Catalyst CLI, you can follow along with this tutorial.


Step 4: Implement the code generated from Postman within the Catalyst Advanced I/O function


Step 5: Test locally using the Catalyst serve command and deploy your project using the Catalyst deploy command.


If you experience any issues after following these steps, please add your query as a comment in this post and we'll help you with the steps.
