Managing Local Data
Use the RethinkDB Admin UI
When working in your local Nanobox environment, your RethinkDB component is given it’s own virtual IP to which you can connect. To view these credentials, use the Nanobox CLI’s
# View local app/component nanobox info local # ... data.rethinkdb IP : 126.96.36.199
In a browser, go to the IP of your RethinkDB component and connect on port
8080. This will load the Admin UI included in the RethinkDB server. For example:
Use the rethinkdb Utility on the Server
console into your locally running RethinkDB container and use the
rethinkdb utility to manage your database. Use the
nanobox run command in the root of your project to start your local dev environment and RethinkDB. In a separate terminal, console into your data component.
# start your local dev environment nanobox run # --- # in another terminal, console into your rethinkdb component nanobox console local data.rethinkdb # use the rethinkdb utility to manage data rethinkdb ...
Note: This same method works for both
Use a Third-Party Client
RethinkDB has a list of third-party clients you can use to manage your data. You can connect to your local RethinkDB database with a third-party client using the IP shown for your database in the
nanobox info local output.
