Google Cloud GUI
At the moment, a simple GUI for Google Cloud Datastore, mostly useful for working with the Datastore emulator during development.
In the future, based on feedback from the community, support for additional Google Cloud Platform APIs may be added.
How it works
Google Cloud GUI relies on gcloud for authentication. This means that in order to connect to a production datastore, you first need to
gcloud auth login with the credentials for your GCP project(s).
Don't run Google Cloud GUI anywhere public, as any user who has access to it, would get access to all the projects that gcloud on that machine has access to!
yarn global add google-cloud-gui (recommended)
Starting the server
google-cloud-gui [--port=<PORT>] [--skip-browser]
--portsets the HTTP port (default 8000)
--skip-browserskips opening the GUI in the browser when the server starts
Using the GUI
The GUI should be available at
http://localhost:8000) and will initially show no projects.
Start by adding a project by clicking the top left "+" button. In the dialog enter the project ID and the emulator host:port, or leave it empty to use the production Datastore.
The projects are stored in the file
After adding a project, you will be able to browse the Datastore namespaces, kinds and entities.
At the moment you can only view and delete entities (no creation or editing). Click the eye icon to view an entity as a tree (useful for large or nested entities that don't fit in a table row).
The project is composed of
client directories. To run locally:
yarn start- this will start the server on port 8000 with Nodemon for auto-reload on sources change.
yarn start- this will start a development server on port 3000 and open the browser at
To build locally, under the project root run
build.sh - this will create the
build directory with the server and transpiled client. Under
server.sh to run the server and client locally on the same port.
