The document-oriented MongoDB database has a whole range of administration interfaces which offer ways to look at the data stored within the database. They are now joined by Mongs, which confines itself to presenting a compact and minimalist representation of the stored data.

Mongs is roughly equivalent to CouchDB's Futon in terms of functionality. The web-based tool has been produced using the Aspen web framework for Python. Queries and sorts are encoded as JSON in the URL used to access Mongs. The JSON is placed within curly braces in the URL which also specifies the name of the server, database, collection and document index. The MIT-licensed Mongs source code is available on Github.
