Pull back & update the entire document JSON


Solace here from www.StarCommanderOnline.com - I just wanted to say THANK YOU to this community. I appear to now be free from any major bugs and defects in my product.

With out Meteor & this community, this would not be possible.


I built an in game editor, but every time I edit something or add a new field, I have to go modify the form. How can I pull back the entire JSON document, edit it, and resubmit the entire json field back, rather than simply just item by item?


Can you clarify what you mean by having to modify the form?


Here’s the form I use to modify stuff. Except it’s out of date with the data I have attached to an object.

So, instead, I go to MongoDB manually, and update stuff. This is a visual editor tool I have, and I want to take this…

And do this…


You should be able to JSON.stringify your document and stick it into a textarea/code editor, then when you click update, take the string, JSON.parse it and update the document in mongo?
