I love using RoboMongo for debugging locally, and would like to use it on my staging server which uses MongoLab. However it looks like I’ll have to find an alternative tool. Do you guys know any decent alternatives?
Maybe http://www.litixsoft.de/mms/ - they have a free community edition.
Check out MongoChef
I tried both - I couldn’t get MMS to connect to MongoLab, but MongoChef works great. Thanks
Wow, I didn’t even know about MongoChef. I like it better than RoboMongo already. Thanks!
Thanks… Getting the hang of it… Robomongo user here
Give MongoBooster a try. Support MongoDB v2.2-3.2, provides update-in-place, SSH tunneling, Lodash & Moment.js integration, ES6 syntax support and true intellisense experience, Cross Platform (Window, Mac, Linux).
While not the best mongo explorer, the new Compass tool is pretty useful for analyzing the data in mongodb.
DrMongo is nice
Another reason to use MongoChef is that it support SSH tunneling, allowing you to connect to a production MongoDB that’s bound only to localhost on a server. Very handy.
I can vouche for this aswell - moved from Robomongo to MongoChef a few months back, and can’t say I’m looking back
MongoBooster V2 is out. This major release includes fluent query builder, GUI for mongotop and mongostat, dark theme, user-defined snippets, restore last working state , auto-update and a few minor improvements. Even better now, MongoBooster, it is free for non-commercial use.
Robomongo is far from abandoned. He recently had a Kickstarter but didn’t reach his target. Even though he didn’t make it, the support he received convinced him to continue. There are now frequent updates but you can only get the most recent if you pay 12$/month, otherwise you must wait 20 days.
MongoDB has their own solution. It’s called Compase
How about using a client made with Meteor – Mongoclient
We tried it and it works great for us. And it’s open source (and active) so you can improve it if it missing anything.
@jitterbop Compass is cool, thanks for the tip! But it’s read-only.
I’m planning to add extension framework to Mongoclient soon, so adding new features will be really easy keep following mongoclient
And thanks for your great opinions.
