Another interesting feature is the ability to manage as many MongoDB database as you want. There’s no limit on how many database connection this app supports, which makes it a real candidate to the best MongoDB administrative front-end, at least on the Linux ecosystem.
Under the hood and supported OSes
Under the hood, the application is written in the C++ programming language, using the Qt toolkit for the graphical user interface, and designed to be deployed on Linux, Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems. At the moment, the qMongoFront application only supports the Linux platform, but it can be easily ported to the Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X operating systems.
