Mingo’s keyboard shortcuts

We are all tired of new shortcuts we have to learn. Mingo’s shortcuts mimic what you are already used to from a browser or your dev tool.

However, Mingo also has some new intuitive “hovering” shortcuts. Just hover over a document and press space or X to select the document. Or hover a document and CMD+C / CTRL+C to copy document value.

Data relations in Mingo

When documents reference each other, they usually do so by the _id of the referenced document.
