An indispensable tool for your database toolkit.

This is a handy, quick, Mac native tool for working with MySQL databases. Sure, it's got all your normal tools for working with databases, see table info, details, change schemas, write sql etc. but there's a lot of little hidden gems. Write a query or filter the rows in a database and if needs be you can select all the rows and copy it as a giant SQL Insert statement. Very handy for getting test data from a production database into your test database. Poke around in the tool, you'll be surprised at some of it's features. It's not perfect, if possible I would have given it 4.5 stars. There's some quirks that will drive you crazy. Getting the bundle, i.e. plugin to format your sql statement takes some real digging on the inter webs to make work. That could definitely be a lot easier to do. However, it is open source and available on Git Hub and I know the Moballo, LLC team is focused on trying to address some of the quirks. And, I know that it's already getting a following on Git. Looking forward to seeing all the enhancements to come.

Hey Astro269,
Thank you for the incredibly detailed review! We hope to be making quite a few fixes to those quirks over the next few months! :)
Happy querying!

Easy, Powerful, Friendly

This tool, just like Sequel Pro that it says it's a successor to, is an absolutely excellent tool for working with mysql.
This tool is better than the tools I've tried that are paid for. It's simply an excellent tool, with a powerful and complete feature set.
I would absolutely pay for this tool.
I've been a long-time user and fan of Sequel Pro, and after returning to using mysql after a couple of years, I was so saddened that it no longer worked. But this is like the long-awaited update to Sequel Pro I had wished for. I can't recommend this enough. It's not just good because it's free. It's just plain good.

Cannot Thank You Enough

And I'd love to thank you monetarily if possible. Sequel Pro was a daily-use tool for years, and honestly, it probably would still be right now. In time, it did begin to feel a little stale, though, albeit bug-free and stable for the most part.

Sequel Ace has become the daily-use option now, replacing its predecessor. The team has earned major respect in my book: the team could have easily churnt out a re-branded identical copy, tacked on a $50 price tag, and promised the world in upcoming releases, something seen far too often unfortunately.

However, as true professionals do, it appears they addressed known bugs first, made it feature-complete to Sequel Pro, ensured stability, mitigated panic and mass exodus in the rebranding efforts, and they're continuing to impress with every new tag they push.

Seriously, to the team behind this work in progress, I applaud and hold in high regard! THANK YOU!
