Tip - MongoDB GUI with support for 3.0 and WiredTiger

When it comes to having a GUI for MongoDB on Windows, my previous, preferred software of choice has been Robomongo. Unfortunately (as of current writing) it does not seem to support MongoDB 3.0+ and WiredTiger. Looks like there’s a really good alternative, which I didn’t know about before. Meet: MongoChef.


It supports Linux, Mac and Windows, and has a license model that is Free for Personal, non commercial use, and then a fair pricing for commercial use.

Have just spent a very short time with it, but looks OK and gets the work done for now. Not sure I like the dialogs/features for assisting you with updates and queries, but it’s optional and if found not useful, then just don’t use those features.
