    Atom

    Atom is great for developers looking for a completely hackable experience. There is a ton of plugins available to you, and you can really build an editor that matches your own personal taste. The performance is also pretty neat and does not impact your CPU as much as the competition.

    DbVisualizer

    Whenever you have to access data sources from more than one database engine provider, you should consider using DbVisualizer for the task. Switching between multiples IDE consumes time and resources (memory), and you also need to learn menus, shortcuts, etc., for each IDE, while using DbVisualizer allows you to work consistently no matter which database engine you are connecting. You can use it to simply navigate through data structures, write SQL sentences or even create new tables and views, develop stored procedures, etc.

    Pros

    Atom

    • Atom is highly customizable and allows for various themes and extensions that can make your code easier to read.
    • Atom has many code hinting features that allow users to write faster and integrate with services likeLINT that can clean up your code once your done to meet your internal teams style choices.
    • It's very fast and manages projects well - Accessing other files within a related folder(s) is very easy and intuitive.
    • It's free!
    Mark Nowowiejski | TrustRadius Reviewer

    DbVisualizer

    • Timed queries that add their result to the result grid for every execution are helpful. Creation of graphs also extremely helpful.
    • Query history and auto-recover feature makes sure we don't lose our queries.
    • Actions like exporting grids to Excel or other tools is a very easy task.

    Cons

    Atom

    • There should be a better user tips manual page to learn keyboard shortcuts
    • It would also be beneficial if mathematical and data analytic tools were added
    • it has quite high start-up timing when you open large projects to work on it
    • Sometimes, atom closed suddenly and do not open again
    • It still lacks better options with the previews even though there are already some by users adding plugins
    • It doesn't have self-correct features for lint errors, unlike IntelliJ

    DbVisualizer

    • When exporting databases to jpg or png image, it should be possible to print banner type without losing quality and legibility
    • Be able to define sections or a set of tables with an identifier of colors that help a better visualization or understanding of large databases
    • Implement a cooperative mode for work teams

    Well Atom is open source so the re-new is a no brainer. The only way I would stop using Atom is if the developers somehow made it not function well. Or, if the project got forked to a commercial version or something. Or, there could be the case that development stops or that it was not updated on this or that platform

    We never had problems with it. It is able to connect to all data sources (Oracle, Informix, DB2, SQL Server) that we currently use.

    I give Atom a 9 because it is one of the most modern text editors built with JavaScript intentionally to allow the editor to be changed and modified with custom functionality that a team may need. I think I would otherwise give atom an 8 due to support, but it gets a 9/10 because of the extensibility/plugin capability.

    Menus are simple and well organized. You can use the same shortcuts no matter which database engine you are connecting to. Configuration of data source connections is simple while keeping all required options.

    Atom has an active forum and a Slack group where you can ask technical questions. Occasionally, the authors will pop in to answer a few questions here and there, but most of the time, its other helpful users who will assist you. Though they aren't the most knowledgeable, they are at least timely.
    As for plugin support, that differs with each plugin, but as I mentioned before, many plugins are no longer maintained.

    Alternatives Considered

    Atom

    They are both pretty good; however, Sublime is free to use but on a trial basis. Atom is free open source. Sublime doesn't have the Github integration or a project file browser. Sublime does have a workspace view option but haven't really used it as much as Atom.
    Laura Glover | TrustRadius Reviewer

    DbVisualizer

    DbVisualizer provides a good value when compared against other 3rd party products with similar features as well as products with similar functionality made by the database vendors. The user interface is good and user friendly / intuitive and easy to learn. It doesn't take too long for an experienced DBA / database developer to come up to speed.

    Return on Investment

    Atom

    • The tool we use when we need quick fixes. Allows fast, reliable scripting to fix urgent problems in our applications.
    • When applications grow from 5-10 files to 100's, they need to be migrated to a heavier-duty IDE. This can be cumbersome and quite annoying, but is necessary to maintain code integrity on such a large scale (since it cannot be done with the limited default toolset of Atom).
    Dylan Cauwels | TrustRadius Reviewer

    DbVisualizer

    • The pricing for DbVisualizer is fair.
    • The tool also succeeds in non-functional areas I find important, such as being able to install and/or run without requiring administrator privileges on Windows.
    • Has capability to generate diagrams and models from existing databases which is very helpful in reverse engineering.
