Robomongo RC7 is out with several improvements.
Robomongo RC7 shows exactly the same error message as a stock MongoDB 3.2 shell (without some logging metadata). For comparison, here is an output of the
mongo shell for the same script:
2016-03-04T17:48:00.066+0300 E QUERY [thread1] Error: Role name for getRole shell helper must be a string : DB.prototype.getRole@src/mongo/shell/db.js:1566:1 @(shell):1:1
2016-03-04T17:48:00.066+0300 E QUERY [thread1] is not shown in Robomongo, but we are planning to make it configurable.
We restored Logs panel. Now it shows all your queries and additional information:
Confirmation on close
When you close
Edit Document window with unsaved changes, you will be warned about it:
This feature was implemented by Anton Zering. Thank you, Anton!
ESC key to close this window.
Better document browsing
Sometimes you just need to quickly list documents in a collections. The quickest way to do this is to double click on a collection in a left sidebar. Sadly, but before Robomongo RC7 it also opens tree item and very soon your sidebar will be cluttered with expanded collection nodes and will look like this:
We solved this issue in RC7 and now your sidebar will always look compact (unless you really need to explore additional collection properties, like indexes):
Tip: you also can press
Enter when you have a focus on a collection in a sidebar for the same functionality.
Easier recursive expanding and collapsing
This is a minor but handy improvement implemented by our active community member Anton Zering. You now can use
Alt + Right (or
Option + Right on Mac) to recursively expand document node. It works for nested documents also.
To collapse recursively, press
Alt + Left (or
Option + Left on Mac). Keys
Right also collapse/expand documents, but not recursively.
