7 Striking Features of MongoDB Tools

Posted by Mike Shah on March 30th, 2017

MongoDB is the open-source and document-oriented database aimed at developers who are looking for a scalable platform that can boost their productivity and efficiency. Unlike conventional databases where you store data in tables, MongoDB lets you keep JSON-like documents in a dynamic way. Using MongoDB tools will make it easier to manage a MongoDB database. Here are seven striking features of the best tools that will enhance your flexibility and simplify your job of managing databases: 

  • No need to install a software – One of the leading MongoDB tools lets you manage your database online through your browser. This way, you do not have to install client software on every machine, and you can take your work anywhere. The intuitive web-based GUI for MongoDB lets you query and browse full databases and documents from your web browser. It is supported by Linux, Windows, and Mac operating systems. 
  • It comes with everything you will ever need to manage a MongoDB database efficiently – Use the advanced drag-and-drop query builder online to query MongoDB documents. It comes with the JSON data viewer, MongoDB shell and data editor, and an online GridFS, too. 
  • A versatile data editor – Browse documents, edit existing values, and expand full view from a robust data editor. Likewise, you can add new value, edit value, insert new document, insert key-value, or remove field with a few simple clicks. One of the leading MongoDB tools comes with a database and collection browser that lets you display large collections by pagination, so it is easier to rename or add a new document, apply filter criteria, and drop a document. 
  • An interactive MongoDB shell – With a web-based command interface, you can update and query data and conduct administrative operations. Likewise, you can load as many shells as you want to conduct many operations simultaneously, or run multiple command statements. 
  • Intuitive query builder – Drag and drop a collection filed into the query editor and apply specific filter criteria to narrow down the results. Various conditions are supported by high-end MongoDB tools including equal criteria and regular expression. 
  • JSON data viewer – Expand the document collection data in a recursive manner and view them into a JSON viewer, or click on the viewer to view data on query results. 
  • GridFS – MongoDB tools come with a GridFS utility for retrieving and storing large files, while ensuring an easier way to view and manage them.
