Rule your mongoDB clusters!
A Sinatra based admin console for mongoDB


Mongo3 allows you to manage your mongoDB clusters using a web based admin console.
The console provides for getting an overview of your mongo landscape and drilldown to
see various information about your databases. You will be able to manage your clusters
by performing common database admin tasks directly from the web console.

The initial release of Mongo3 will be a read only shallow mode. Further development
still needs to take place to build up the functionality from the existing code base.



  • Easily administer your mongo cluster information

  • Get a real time snapshot of what your configuration looks like

  • Drill down on clusters, databases, collections and indexes

  • Manage all mongo artifacts from a single web interface


  • Collection rename

  • Database creation

  • Manage logs

  • Support for shards and replication

  • Add support for drilling down array and embedded documents [done]


  • mongo + mongo_ext

  • agnostic-will_paginate

  • memcache-client

  • sinatra

  • mongo_rack

  • main


gem install mongo3


Configure It!

You will need to give mongo3 some information about your mongo configuration. 
In order to do so create a .mongo3 directory in your home directory and create 
a file landscape.yml. You will need to specify the envs, host and ports specific
to your configuration, but here is a sample.

    host: localhost
    port: 27017

    host:     beta_host_name
    port:     27017
    user:     bobo
    password: secret

Launch It!

Launch it. Fires up sinatra and opens up the console
NOTE!!: The gem now leverages mongo_rack ( a mongoDB based session store ).
By default, this assumes a mongoDB instance is running on localhost and on default port!

> mongo3

Alternatively you can use a different mongo instance to store mongo3 session information
or use memcache by specifying the --pool options as follows:

To use the mongo session store on localhost at port 27030 with db name 'mongo3' and collection named 'sessions' 

> mongo3 --pool "mongo://localhost:27030/mongo3/sessions" 

To use memcache session store on localhost at port 11233 with namespace 'mongo3'

> mongo3 --pool "memcache://localhost:11233/mongo3"

The pool options assumes the following format:

--pool {mongo|memcache}://{host}:{port}/{db_name|namespace}/{cltn_name}
