Deleting a collection using MongoDB Ruby Driver

Suppose there is a db named ‘music’ with a collection ‘rock_bands’, deleting this collection from this db using the MongoDB ruby driver would be like this :-

client = Mongo::Client.new([ ‘127.0.0.1:27017’ ], :database => ‘music’)
client[:rock_bands].drop()

Using Mongo Shell here’s how you drop a collection :-

> use music

switched to db music

> db.rock_bands.drop()

true
