To get it working it was just a matter of installing the gem and running the humongous command:> sudo gem install humongous
It is supposed to launch the browser automatically when you run the command, but it failed for me. When I ran the command again it told me that it was already running on http://0.0.0.0:9000/ so I just navigated to that URL manually and it worked like a charm.
I’m sure there are lots of advanced features of MongoDB that are not supported in the UI but for quick and easy MongoDB browsing and editing, I think this is pretty slick. Kudos to the author.
I also discovered a minor issue with Humongous that I logged in the project’s GitHub issue tracker. I plan to fix this issue and submit a pull request unless the author gets to it first.
