Announcing NoSQLBooster 5.1!

We're so proud to release NoSQLBooster for MongoDB 5.1 today. This version includes visualizing GeoJSON Objects, mouse hover improvement for MongoDB operators along with some useful minor improvements and bugfix.

Let’s dive in and get an overview of what’s coming in NoSQLBooster 5.1!

Visualizing GeoJSON Objects

The most significant enhancement of version 5.1 is to allow users to visualize the MongoDB GeoJSON Objects quickly. The GeoJSON is a format for encoding geographical data structures, using the JavaScript Object Notation (JSON).

Visualize GeoJSON

Mouse Hover Improvement

NoSQLBooster 5.1 greatly enhanced mouse hover in the code editor. In addition to method and type definitions, hover is now able to display document and example for MongoDB operators.

Mouse hover for MongoDB operators

  • Press "F1" to view online help
  • Press "Shift+F1" to copy the example section to the clipboard

Use Keyboard Shortcuts to Switch Views

In version 5.1, you can use keyboard shortcuts to quickly switch between the editor, the results view, the database object explorer, and my queries panel.

  • Press "Esc" to bring the focus back to the editor
  • Press "Shift+Esc" to bring the focus back to the result view
  • Press "Command+Shift+E" to bring the focus to the object explorer (new in 5.1)
  • Press "Command+Shift+M" to bring the focus to my queries panel (new in 5.1)

Database Rename Operation

MongoDB doesn't have a built-in way to rename a database, unlike renaming collection, renaming a database is cumbersome. NoSQLBooster 5.1 adds a handy "rename database" operation. This simple UI operation makes renaming the database less painful.

Note that this rename database operation requires admin DB read and write permissions and this operation migrates only collections, indexes, and users, and other database objects need to be handled manually. Depending on the size of the collection, this may take longer to complete. Other operations which require exclusive access to the affected databases will be blocked until the rename completes.

Rename Database

"Rename Field" Improvement

In addition to renaming the field name of the select document, the newly added option allows you to rename the field names of all documents in this collection.
