RavenDB Useful Tools

Here I will list all of the useful tools I come across when using RavenDB.

So here is the list:-

  • RavenDB add on for Glimpse Glimpse RavenDB.
  • RavenDB Mini Profiler – more info can be found here and here.
  • LinqPad which can be found here is a great tool which you can use to query RavenDB using Linq statements – if you have the correct third party driver installed.

    To learn how to get Linqpad to query RavenDB you will find all you need to do here.

  • Rest-Client which can be found here is extremely handy for testing Restful webservices which RavenDB is.


    Click the downloads tab and then select the following:-


    Once selected rest-client will fire up, it’s very straight forward to use, put in the url to your database where RavenDB is running and then you can use the POST, GET and so on as below:-


  • Fiddler 2 which can be found here

    Fiddler is a Web Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect traffic, set breakpoints, and “fiddle” with incoming or outgoing data. Fiddler includes a powerful event-based scripting subsystem, and can be extended using any .NET language

    We can use Fiddler to monitor what is going on when we work with RavenDB as well as use it to inject documents on the fly which is shown in the Tekpub video series.

  • If anyone has any other useful tools for working with RavenDB then please let me know and I will add to this list.
