Build internal tools with CouchDB

Retool makes it easy to build admin panels, dashboards, and utilities on top of your CouchDB data.

Connecting Retool to CouchDB takes just a few minutes, and lets you quickly build internal tools like admin panels on top of your CouchDB data. Paste in a connection string, whitelist the Retool IP, and you’re ready to start building.

Working with CouchDB is easy in Retool: you can pull in comments for moderation into a Table component, mark them as approved with a Button, and write the new data back to your DB with .update.

Retool gives you a simple GUI for .get , .insert, .delete, .update, .find, and .getView. We support reading from and writing to your CouchDB data: check out our CouchDB docs here.
