      Description

      Our existing suite of MongoDB tools are powerful and flexible but can be challenging to manage all CLI options, authentication, etc...

      A terminal-based GUI application (ncurses; something similar to the Linux Kernel config tool) for MongoDB tools would improve UX.

      Example workflow for mongoimport:

      • User invokes tool and is presented with GUI
      • User selects mongoimport
      • User then sets options such as file type, path, authentication, etc...
      • User selects "save "
      • Tool writes configuration to file
      • Operation can be executed immediately or the configuration can be loaded later
