MongoBooster 3.3 is out

So happy to release MongoBooster 3.3 today.  This version includes a few useful shell script extensions (cursor.getShellScript, cursor.saveAsView…) along with some useful minor improvements and bugfix.

shell script extensions

1. cursor.getShellScript()

Cursor.getShellScript()  method return the MongoDB find shell script produced by the MongoBooster Fluent Query Builder.

For example: 

Run the following Fluent query script in MongoBooster:

1
2
3
4
5
6
db.user.where('age').gte(18).lte(65)
.select('name age -_id')
.sort("-age name")
.limit(5)
.skip(100)
.getShellScript()

We got the following MongoDB shell find script

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
db.user.find({
"age" : {
"$gte" : 18,
"$lte" : 65
}
}, {
"name" : 1,
"age" : 1,
"_id" : 0
})
.sort({ "age" : -1, "name" : 1 })
.limit(5)
.skip(100)

Run the following aggregate Fluent Query script in MongoBooster:

1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8

db.companies.aggregate(qb.where('founded_year').gte(2000).lte(2010))
.group({_id:"$category_code",count:{$sum:1}})
.sort('-count')
.skip(100)
.limit(5)
.getShellScript()
```
We got the MongoDB shell aggregate script :

```js
db.companies.aggregate(
[
{
"$match" : {
"founded_year" : {
"$gte" : 2000,
"$lte" : 2010
}
}
},
{
"$group" : {
"_id" : "$category_code",
"count" : {
"$sum" : 1
}
}
},
{
"$sort" : {
"count" : -1
}
},
{
"$skip" : 100
},
{
"$limit" : 5
}
])

2. cursor.saveAsView() 

Cursor.saveAsView() save find/aggregate cursor as a MongoDB readonly view.  The method requires MongoDB 3.4 and above.

db.user.where('age').gte(18).lte(65)
.select('name age -_id')
.sort("-age name")
.limit(5)
.skip(100)
.saveAsView("user_view", {dropIfExists:true}) //drop view if it exists.
db.companies.aggregate(qb.where('founded_year').gte(2000).lte(2010))
.group({_id:"$category_code",count:{$sum:1}})
.sort('-count')
.skip(100)
.limit(5)
.saveAsView("companies_view", {dropIfExists:true}) //drop view if it exists.

3. cursor.getAggregationPipeline()

Cursor.getAggregationPipeline() return the aggregation pipeline produced by the MongoBooster Fluent Query Builder..

.select('name age -_id')
.sort("-age name")
.limit(5)
.skip(100)
.getAggregationPipeline()
```

We got the following MongoDB shell aggregate pipeline:

```js
[
{
"$match" : {
"age" : {
"$gte" : 18,
"$lte" : 65
}
}
},
{
"$project" : {
"name" : 1,
"age" : 1,
"_id" : 0
}
},
{
"$sort" : {
"age" : -1,
"name" : 1
}
},
{
"$skip" : 100
},
{
"$limit" : 5
}
]

Minor UI Improvements

MongoBooster Update-View

Minor Improvements & Bugfix

  • New,  add “Copy Key/JSON Path(s) to Clipboard”  item to the context-menu of tree/grid view.  This action will return the full JSON path of the selected item.  e.g. “object.array[0].subObj.field”

  • Fixed,  Property ‘xxx’ does not exist on type ‘{}’ warning.

  • Fixed,  typings for  ISODate constructor.

  • Fixed,  Replica Set  connection error with Kerberos

  • Improved, add more display page size options [5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000]

  • Improved, resize app icon (the app icon on macOS is too large)
