  • JSON Formatter

    Navicat is the best DB Admin ever and I'm really happy it added Mongodb support.
    The first thing I noticed, is it lacks a good JSON formatter like other Mongodb GUIs with:

    1- JSON5 notation
    2- Collapse and expand on embedded documents and arrays (collapse all and expand all)
    3- Inline editing and inline type changing
    4- Type coloring

    TreeView has some of these features but it only show one doc at a time and there's not way to collapse whole document only showing _ID.

    Studio 3T has done good job regarding this.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    If you want to edit an embedded document, right-click it and select Edit Document.

    Please note that Type coloring feature is available in Grid View.

      I know these, although Grid View is good for sql database it's not good for documents. Every nosql database manager has a descent tree view which show all objects together. You can look at robo 3t which is very simple and free.

        Thanks for your suggestion. I have forwarded it to our development team. We will keep improving Navicat in future.
