Video tutorial: List View and JSON Editing for MongoDB right in your browser.

In this video tutorial, MongoLab shows you how our browser-based List View gives you a visual window into your MongoDB collection, letting you scroll through a consecutive set of documents each in its entirety. After finding a particular document, we open it up in a new page with a detailed JSON-validating editor and add an element to an embedded array. About a week ago, we released Episode 6: Table Views and Saved Searches in our standard administrative toolkit. Going in reverse order with our MongoLab Introductory Screencast Series we're calling this one Episode 5: List View and JSON Editing.

As a benefit of having a cloud-hosted database like MongoLab, administrative and utility tools can be provided with a browser. Any connectivity headaches and version interoperability issues like tool and driver mismatches disappear. Instead those issues are automatically resolved by the team that hosts the service (that would be us). This frees you and your team to focus on your business needs directly. And like other As A Service offerings, cloud connectivity means that we can make incremental updates with minimal disruption to your workflow.

We're always looking for feedback on where we can make updates and improvements, so please let us know what you think by making a comment below, or emailing More episodes are forthcoming at

Thanks for watching.
