I've been working a lot in PHP lately and almost always to connect to a mySQL database. I'm used to working in Terminal and the command line to create, read, update and delete (CRUD) my web pages and for people just starting out with mySQL, there is of course the more user-friendly phpMyAdmin. However, I've been mooching around the net and stumbled upon something I now don't know why I hadn't searched for before - Sequal Pro.
So what does it do?
Sequal Pro is a database management software and it's quite quite slick, let me tell you. There is virtually no wait time for pages of information to reload/refresh, as opposed to using phpMyAdmin, and it's more visually convenient than using the command line as it has a really easy to use GUI which allows you to view databases, tables and their contents with a few clicks of the mouse. The best thing of all is that it's free. You can check it out here on the Sequal Pro web site.
I am so impressed with this little gem that I wanted to post a recommendation here to urge everyone who uses mySQL to at least try it out.Tweet
