    mongo-table-admin (MTA)

    Admin interface for mongo. Work with documents as table rows. Integrates Handsontable - great inline edit tool, and Pivottable - data discovery and analisys tool.

    js-standard-style downloads npm


    For me, data collection is usually not just a valid json. You can say I'm an old style, but I'd like to understand data structure, trends, clusters etc. Thats what pivot is about. And second thing, I like to fix data easyly when I see small problems. Not like a SQL query, but inlide edit - just like Excel table.

    • Inline edit using Handsontable. Add new rows. Delete rows. Add or modify columns.
    • Browse, analyze documents using Pivottable - group by rows, columns. Build graphs, export small datasets.
    • Query documents using JSON or new Visual Query Editor. Count before loading data. Manage projection and limit.
    • Use goodies like run sync function on every document, find dupes or group count.
    • Create new collection copy-pasting data from any source. Set data type - Number, Boolean, Array, Object, Date. String is by default.
    • Import data from xls, xlsx, csv, json, and those zipped.
    • Manage indexes, browse or edit collection schema.
