MongoDB admin UI server written in Node.js
JavaScript CSS HTML Shell

readme.md

MongoUI: MongoUI (mongoui) is a web (browser) admin interface for MongoDB.

MongoUI is an open-source web and desktop app which allows to administer local and remote MongoDB instances via GUI. No need to type commands in a terminal anymore. Convenient interface will allow to create, update, remove and filter/search documents. You can switch between collections or even databases with just a single click.

Currently a standalone tool (run as an app locally or on your server); desktop app later. This is a brand new v2 of MongoUI. Old version use DerbyJS, then new version uses Webpack, React, React Router, React Bootstrap and of course Express and Node.

MongoUI v2 looks like this:

Here's a short video that shows filtering, editing, and switching collections:

Why

Tired of typing db.users.findOne({_id:ObjectId(...)}) just to look up data structure. Even more typing to modify the data. Not happy with the user experience of other MongoDB admin tools?

Meet MongoUI! Alternative to exprss-mongo and Robomongo.


Installation

npm i -g mongoui
mongoui

Dev Installation

Download MongoUI

SSH:

git clone git@github.com:azat-co/mongoui
npm i

or HTTPS

git clone https://github.com/azat-co/mongoui.git

or CURL

curl -O https://github.com/azat-co/mongoui/archive/master.zip

or WGET

wget https://github.com/azat-co/mongoui/archive/master.zip
unzip master.zip
cd mongoui-master

Install Dependencies

npm i

Usage

Build and Run MongoUI in Regular Mode

npm run build && npm start

Then, open http://localhost:3001 in your favorite browser.

Build and Run MongoUI in Development (Hot-Reload) Mode

Front-end development in one terminal:

npm run dev-server

Back end development in another terminal:

npm start

Open http://localhost:3000/ in your favorite browser.

Note: there are two ports, 3001 and 3000. In dev mode you need to go to 3000, in regular mode, navigate to 3001. This is because in dev mode, we are using webpack dev server on 3000 and the API (index.js) is alway on 3001.


Additional Tasks

You'll need MongoDB running for MongoUI to work:

mongod

Front-end build:

npm run build

Configs

Configurations are in the config.json file. Modify as needed (remote databases should work just fine!).

{
  "database": {
    "default": {
      "host": "localhost",
      "port": 27017,
      "name": "mongoui",
      "username": "",
