MVIEWER is an ultra-basic TUI MongoDB browser made in Go.

An org I work for has strict policies on network access, so doing development/debugging on database infrastructure can be extremely slow and painful.

I built this tool as a quick & easy way to see if the changes/queries I’m making are working properly, while being SSH’d onto the server. It’s read-only, no projections, no aggregations, only filters.

mviewer -f <path/to/file> (where path/to/file is a plaintext file containing your Mongo URI string)

— or —

mviewer -s <mongo-uri>
