GUI for MongoDB needed to mange Meteor app


Deploying a MeteorJS app, thus using MongoDB for the database. How do we use a GUI to manage the database?

I tried using RoboMongo and MongoChef but neither works.

Anyone with Meteor apps managing their collections with a GUI?

Imagine this task. Someone has posted a faulty link into the collection. I can use Mongo directly to alter the link, but this isnt a reasonable or fast solution when the app gets bigger. In every other server I have used, there has been some graphical interface to manage the collections.

Another less secure solution would be to develop an admin backend in Meteor so admins can log in and edit the posts, but as I said, that would be very insecure.

I was looking for a similar solution when parse announced they were shutting down. I’m currently using I think it’s the most decent interface I’ve found so far.

You can also try QueryAssist - - professional IDE for MongoDB with advanced IntelliSense, SQL queries, in-place editing and more. Both free and commercial versions are available.

There’s also [the MongoDB IDE, Studio 3T] ( which used to be the MongoDB GUI, MongoChef.

It’s the most convenient, most developer-friendly GUI I’ve used. You can edit data in place, switch between Tree, Table, or JSON views to manage collections, query through a drag-and-drop visual query builder or their built-in mongo shell interface, among loads of other features (e.g. SQL Query, Aggregation Editor, Query Code, etc. - some are Pro features though, heads up!)
