Overall Satisfaction with Sequel Pro

I use Sequel Pro on a daily basis and it helps me to better manage and organize our project databases, without needing to use a browser based solution like phpMyAdmin. We use it in both local, staging and production environments.
  • Creating new databases and managing them, like editing some specific fields and options
  • Great interface; it's easy to execute functions like SQL commands that automates our workflow
  • The way it imports existing databases makes everything much easier, so we just need to import ZIP or SQL files
  • Improving the way we create new connections to remote databases
  • I couldn't find any way to configure my local server (MySQL), so I need to make changes on server outside the application. I know that there are other tools that integrate it, so you don’t have to leave the workflow
  • It could have a feature to integrate our databases or connections (favorites) with other devices, like using Google Drive or Dropbox. It would be really useful!
  • The user interface is great. Since all of our computers are macOS based, we can all use it and share knowledge with our colleagues
  • It enables me to make things in such a faster way that it enables us to spend our time with coding and providing more solutions to our clients
  • The workflow is much improved with the import and export feature, so we don't waste time with that kind of work.
It's so much easier to use, it's the perfect balance between something deep enough to manage and customize databases, but it's easy enough to get into really fast.
It's my definitive solution for managing local and remote databases, and it's the best tool I've ever used for MySQL administration. I've literally learned how to use Sequel Pro in a matter of minutes.
We develop a lot of Wordpress websites and it works just fine. Maybe it’s not that appropriate for large scale applications, since it can suffer from the performance viewpoint.
