Where do I install JSON Studio?


JSON Studio installs on Linux, OS X and Windows. You can install JSON Studio anywhere so long as your users have HTTP access to the host running JSON Studio and the Studio can access the MongoDB databases you want to access. There are two typical installations. In one, each user of the Studio installs a private version on their desktop or laptop. In the other, the Studio is installed on one shared server and all users access the same instance of the Studio.

All installation options are valid and work well. The only recommendation we make is that if your MongoDB databases are running in the cloud (e.g. one Amazon AWS) that you run the Studio on a machine in the cloud as well – i.e. close to the database servers. Traffic between your browser and the Studio is less verbose than traffic between the Studio and the Mongo database.
