You mean SQL not MySQL.

Also that might be one thing it does but it also allows people to transition from SQL queries they know to mongodb queries. It helps the learning process.

No, I mean MySQL. The tool linked is specifically tooled for MySQL queries.

I fully support it as a learning tool, but Mongo's query language isn't all that hard to pick up if you already know how SQL works. Getting stuck into the mindset of "just write relational DB-oriented software and then generate some Mongo queries for it" is an awful practice that is sure to lead to much pain and suffering.
