Announcing MongoBooster 3.0

We’re so proud to release Mongobooster 3.0 today. In this brand new version, it gets more and more useful with our full-featured shell and several new tools.  

New free edition added with Mongobooster 3.0, this free edition is free for personal/commercial use but limited function.

Schema Analyzer

Schema Analyzer is a very useful build-in tool. Due to schema-less feature, collections in MongoDB do not have a schema document to describe field’s datatype, collection structure and validations. With our brand new Schema Analyzer Tool, you will get a document to describe the schema of certain collection from sampled(random, first, last) N or all records.

The document shows the probability of sampled objects , different types percentage, you could get a brief of certain collection’s schema. If you want more accurate result, you could sample more records or analyze whole collection, but it may took a long time to finish if the collection has millions records or thousands fields.

It also shows document validation of the collection, which is a new feature in MongoDB 3.2. There will be a validator window showing below the document. If you click the link, field will be highlighted in the window.

You could export this document to most popular document file types, like MS Word, PDF, HTML, along with JSON, TXT and CSV.  Mongoose.js schema file supported as well. Sample file

Test Data Generator

Create a large collection with random but “real data” is available in Mongobooster 3.0. We now provide more than 100 templates to create random faked “real” data, and you can use this tool to create test data with incredible large size. You could also define how much data is blank too, and how many docs to create. All settings will generate a script in the shell, and you could customize it with more complex business logic.



Test Data Generator


Test Data Sample

Import Data from RDBMS

In case you want to transform a project’s database from MySql to MongoDB, or need to import data from 3rd party database., now you could do it through our RDBMS data import tool. We now support MySql, PostgreSql and MSSQL. Like test data generator, you could just config it on UI or write more complex business logic in the shell.



Import Data

Read-only Status Lock

You do have full access to a production database, but usually you don’t want to change anything by mistaken, you could use the read-only status lock. There are two ways to use it:

  1. Set an entire connection read-only, edit the config make it read-only 

  2. Set any tab read-only temporarily, use the lock button on the tab toolbar

You could unlock temporarily of a locked config by using the unlock button too. The temporary lock/unlock only affects current tab.

Export to SQL file

We added import RDBMS to MongoDB, on the other hand, we also provide export MongoDB database/collection to .sql file.  Supported dialect includes MySql, MSSQL, PostgreSql and Oracle.





New Export/Import/Copy Progression

Like test data generator and import RDBMS to MongoDB, we put all the export/import/copy logic in the shell, you could review the code to make your changes. The progression is shown in the console.log/print tab.

Auto Refresh on result dataview

Under the dataview setting menu, a dataview auto refresh setting list is added. Whichever view you use, the dataview will refresh automatically in certain seconds.(Note: if you want to change your shell code, you need to pause the auto refresh which is besides the countdown)

Minor Enhancement

  • Transpile to ES5

Mongobooster’s code is written in ES6 as default, but Mongo shell hasn’t supported it yet. If you want to use the code we created in that, you could transpile the code to ES5, it’s in the context menu of the shell editor(you could find any command using Ctrl(Command)+Shift+P)* Support SSH key format: ECDH and ECDSA

  • Validator node on connection tree

Under collection node, a new validator node is added. Document validation is a new feature of MongoDB 3.0,  you could double click the node to view it.* Add clear dataview button on the rightest dataview toolbar
