  1. Use Standard Tab Switching Shortcut

    I'd really prefer if you use a more standard shortcut key combo for tab switching. Current shortcut is really weird on a MacBook. LOL

    Previous tab: cmd + {
    Next tab: cmd + }

    Terminal, Safari, Chrome, TextMate, everyone does this. You know we engineers work a lot on the MacBook. PLEASE!

    Otherwise, loving the app. I'm buying after the trial!

  2. sparse index icon

    Add different icon for sparse indexes.
    Queries have different behavior for sparse vs non-sparse indexes.
    Expanding a collection to see the indexes may fool you to sort on a field only to find out it was a sparse index and the query cannot use it.
    Similarly icon for hashed indexes would be nice. May be simple overlay of # and S would be enough.

  3. Wordwrap JSON please

    Editing a long string of text inside a JSON object is hard since the text doesn't wrap and is in one line. Version 2.0.4 Windows

  4. Connection name included in tab title or server info

    Currently when I open a collection in a given server for analysis, the tab only shows the collection name without any indication of the connection used. This can be tricky if I have similarly named collections in multiple databases to which I have an open connection. The tab top part shows the server IP, which helps, but I’d personally prefer the connection name. Maybe there could be some option to include connection name in tab name or replace the IP with the name?

  5. table view - keep sorted column when refreshing

    Currently the sorted column is reset and the rows are re-arranged so I cannot look for changes by simple refresh.

  7. Similar feature from Mongoose (Populate)

    Would be great if we had an option to populate ObjectIds (like Mongoose Populate or SQL join) as a feature for MongoChef.

    Mongoose Populate:
    http://mongoosejs.com/docs/populate.html

  8. Add support for authentication database and connecting to specific database

    Suppose we have the following connection string: mongodb://user:password@localhost/test

    In this example and according to the documenation, the 'test' database will be used for authentication as well as the database you connect to. The documentation specifies an 'authenticationDatabase' query parameter to customize this a little bit.

    For example: mongodb://user:password@localhost/test?authenticationDatabase=admin

    This changes the connection string to mean that you should connect to 'test' but authenticate against 'admin'. It would be nice to have GUI support for this.

  10. Show a clear way to differentiate between records pulled

    In the JSON view there is no clear indication where one record begins and the other ends in case there are multiple results.

  11. Collapsed Nodes in Tree View (Preference)

    I would love to have an option/preference to allow me to have a collection open/refresh in Tree View will all documents collapsed or expanded; this way I can choose which way I want to see my data.

    Just a pet peeve when I have 100 documents and only want to see the collapsed view.

  12. Table View: JSON doc in tooltip when user hovers over a field that has multiple nested values

    Table View - When a user hovers over a field that has multiple fields nested - that portion of the JSON could be shown in a tooltip. A user can browse through data very easily.

  13. MongoChef: Give option for setting the default view for lists of 1 document.

    I'm not sure if it the best idea. What I'm trying to achieve is this scenario:
    I have default view set to tree view, but when I have displayed only 1 document, it's better shown in the tree mode. I think 1 document lists are common cases, e.g. after following reference, searching by specific _id, after using findOne. In Robomongo changing view is one click task, here is 2 click (with delay of opening list and selecting).

  17. stats overview

    It would be nice if you could add a simple overview where you can compare the collection stats of a db + the db stats of an instance

    I'm most intrested in count, size, storageSize and index size.

    Smaller solution: format the stats mentioned above human readable (2,5GB instead of 2512354123)
