adminMongo: MongoDB GUI

adminMongo is a Web based user interface (GUI) to handle all your MongoDB connections/databases needs. adminMongo is fully responsive and should work on a range of devices.

adminMongo connection information (including username/password) is stored unencrypted in a config file, it is not recommended to run this application on a production or public facing server without proper security considerations.

  2. Install dependencies: npm install
  3. Start application: npm start

  • Manage from a connection level for easy access to multiple databases
  • Create/Delete databases
  • Create/Delete/Edit collection
  • Create/Delete/Edit documents
  • Create/Delete indexes
  • Query documents
  • Collection statistics
  • Export collections in JSON format


  • Documents need to have an "_id" value which is a string, integer, or MongoDB ObjectId. Documents using Composite ID indexing is currently not supported.


adminMongo will listen on host: localhost and  port: 1234 by default.
This can be overwritten by adding a config file in /config/app.json. The config file can also override the default 5 docs per page.
The config file options are:

        "app": {
            "host": "",
            "port": 4321,
            "docs_per_page": 15

Note: Any changes to the config file requires a restart of the application


Create a connection

After visiting you will be presented with a connection screen. You need to give your connection a unique name as a reference when using adminMongo and a MongoDB formatted connection string. The format of a MongoDB connection string can form: mongodb://<user>:<password>@<port>/<db> where specifying to the <db> level is optional. For more information on MongoDB connection strings, see the official MongoDB documentation.

Note: The connection can be either local or remote hosted on VPS or MongoDB service such as MongoLab.
