This repo contains scripts for building and running the Mongo Express web app for administering MongoDB database.

To run and install:

docker pull mongo-express

Here is ink to mongo-express image on Docker store.

Linking mongo and mongo express

If you are using the d-mongodb repo from, you can link the two containers and give Mongo Express admin access by setting some environmental variables.

To get the mongodb admin username and password, use docker logs and give it the name of the mongodb container:

docker logs leaping_spiderman
