Since MongoLab updated to use MongoDB 3.0, RoboMongo is unable to connect. This is a known issue and is supposed to be fixed in RoboMongo 0.9x, but development appears to be abandoned…
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?
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.
