I have been using RethinkDB for a couple of side projects and have been
very impressed with its API and features. One nice feature is the built-in administration user
web interface. Basically, when you download and start the database using
rethinkdb command you
don't need anything else. Just open the browser and point at
The "Data Explorer" allows to execute queries against a database.
When typing a query, a code completion tooltip appears.
I have discovered a very nice touch that shows how much the RethinkDB team "gets" a developer:
the tooltip text uses the actual live data in its suggestions. For example, I have two
databases named "samples" and "test" in my local instance. When I enter
r.db( in the Data Explorer
the tooltip suggests these names (plus built-in system database "rethinkdb").
Great job, guys
