MySQL & SQL server have some awesome desktop-native tools which enable rapid ad-hoc querying & updating the database, with massive performance gains (specifically, eg. Navicat, and SQL Server).

RethinkDB has a built-in "Data Explorer"; however, this is really suboptimal for poking data with the mouse -specifically, all query requires writing a full JS statement by hand.

Outside of the web administration tool's "Data explorer", is there any high-leverage desktop GUI tool available for poking RethinkDB's data?


Try this: RethinkDB GUI Client for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux

ReQLPro is free Desktop GUI that was built to help fill that void for RethinkDB. Right now it mostly covers the "poking data with the mouse" need your looking for. It is still under active development and looking for feedback to help prioritize the roadmap.

It is an electron-built app, and runs on Mac OS X, Windows (Tested on Windows 10), and Linux (Tested on ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit)

The basic features available right now are:

  • Add/Edit/Remove Connections/Favorites
  • Add/Remove Databases
  • Add/Remove Tables
  • View table data in a table view with sorting and pagination
  • Quick links to delete or edit a document via row in the table view
  • JSON Text Editor for Creating/Editing Documents

Here is a screenshot that highlights the look and feel of the app: ReQLPro RethinkDB

Disclaimer: I help build and manage this app.

  • Cass, you have potential for a great answer here, but could you please add at least a screenshot and explain how data can be edited? Thanks! – Nicolas Raoul Jul 12 '16 at 4:10
