If you edit code with Visual Studio Code, install this extension which allows you to run XQuery and JavaScript queries against a MarkLogic database. It also adds syntax highlighting for the MarkLogic XQuery (version "1.0-ml") dialect. The GitHub repository README.md contains instructions for how to get started.


  • Run XQuery code on a MarkLogic server with the “MarkLogic: Eval XQuery” command
  • Run JavaScript code on a MarkLogic server with the “MarkLogic: Eval JavaScript” palette command
  • XQuery-ML syntax highlighting (thanks to Paxton Hare’s Sublime plugin)
  • It’s asynchronous; long-running queries won’t freeze the editor
  • Changes to the configuration take immediate effect, switch databases and credentials on-the-fly
  • Readability: pretty-formatting of query results based on their contents
