In our interview with Nick Vatamaniuc, he shared the value of being able to open Fauxton and inspect, query and modify data, stating it is a powerful and useful feature. He went on to explain that he can speed up product development, for example by letting a front end developer populate the database by hand; with some “mock” data and a few mouse clicks they can refine their design. He stated that it can also help in production when something isn’t working quite right and there is a need to see the state in the database, noting that for newcomers this makes it easy to learn and experiment.
