Overall Satisfaction with Sequel Pro

Sequel Pro is used by our developers for accessing MySQL and alternatives like MariaDB. We work with many different clients and websites so having a GUI application that stores credentials for this database but also provides the ability to perform basic to advanced tasks and queries has proven far more efficient than using the terminal or web-based applications like PhpMyAdmin.
  • Searching and filtering
  • Connections over SSH
  • Raw SQL when you need it
  • Database and table management
  • User management, credentials and roles
  • Some queries can be slow and fail to stop
  • Support for different types of database structures like SQLite or NoSQL would be awesome
  • It's free. You really can't go wrong there.
  • PhpMyAdmin, DB Browser, Base, MySQL Workbench and Querious
Free is a huge selling point, but beyond that it's secure, powerful and easy to use.
I always suggest Sequel Pro for accessing databases. It's free, secure and easy to use. Because it's an application that lives on your machine and possesses the ability to connect to databases over SSH it means we don't have to expose web-based database management applications or expose the database port publicly on the server. The only time Sequel Pro is not an option is if the database is not MySQL or an equivalent.
