MongoCMS Save

MongoDB GUI Tool

Project README

Project no longer maintained


MongoCMS is just a very simple content editor for MongoDB collections. It makes manging rich content types very simple, clean and elegant.

Motivation

My primary motivation for building this tool was my personal blog (www.josebrowne.com). My process for updating HTML content was very painful (encode, decode, encode, decode..etc). Manually adding dates was also surprisingly tricky (ex ISODate("2011-04-24T09:00:00.000Z"). I tried EVERY tool out there and none solved this problem for me. I had two weeks off so I decided to give it a shot.

Features

  • Connect to local and Remote collections
  • Inline editing
  • Create/Delete documents
  • Create/Update/Edit or Delete data
  • Support for nested fields
  • Easy breadcrumbs navigation for nested data
  • Inline HTMl editing (with ace)
  • Easy date inputs (using HTML5 datetime input type)

More features coming soon..

Getting Started

Download

Connect

You can connect to bot local (mongod) instances as well as remote databases. For local connections the only required fields are HOST and database. Once connected select your collection from the list and you're good to go.

Editing Changes

MongoCMS currently supports full CRUD operations on Collections and Documents. Simply select or create a document in document list on left then begin making in-line edits. To save changes simple blur (click outside of inputs).

Special keys

The UI will optionally recognize and display certain root keys if they exist

  • created: will display relative time in collection list
  • views: will display view count in collection list
  • title: will use this instead of id string in collection list titles

Keyboard Shortcuts

  • Full Screen Ace Editor: CMD + Shift + F

TODO next

  • Create connection manager (right now just stores last credentials in localStorage)
  • Implement AMD (ex. require.js)
  • Infinite Scroll for Document list
  • Add "create collection" feature to connect dialog
  • Edit keys
  • Add config options

The HTML5 stack makes it very easy for many developers to contribute so if you have any other suggestions feel free to create a feature request.
