MongoDB is an open source, NoSQL database that is incredibly dynamic. For some users, MongoDB databases and their content can be best accessed using a GUI (graphical user interface), which is essentially like a dashboard to manage the database and manipulate the data. There are many free MongoDB graphical user interfaces out there, and some are better than others. Here’s a list of some of the best MongoDB GUIs:
MongoChef is a multi-platform desktop GUI with full support for MongoDB. It allows for in-place data editing, and features a drag and drop search query builder.
MongoBooster is a free MongoDB GUI that offers a query builder, in-place editing, andÂ an IntelliSense feature that knows all completions, methods, ids, variables, etc.
This GUI is only for Windows, but it offers the same great features as the GUIs listed above, and is a good option for someone who would like a MongoDB managerÂ built specifically for Windows OS.
RoboMongo is a cross-platform MongoDB GUI. RoboMongo sets itself apart from the other MongoDB managers because it’s the first and only MongoDB GUI that embeds the real MongoDB shell.
