Beekeeper Studio

Free & Open Source SQL editor and database manager for MySQL, Postgres, SQLite, SQL Server, and more.

Hmmm! This project has started to get some traction recently. It's mission: improve technology accessibility by providing a free and open SQL editor and database manager that is full-featured and easy to use.

I've always been a little bit surprised that there aren't better options for OSS SQL clients. It's such a broadly applicable tool category and the good options have historically been either a) single-client, b) proprietary, or c) unpleasant to use. There has been a lot of momentum around Beekeeper of late (check out the repo) and I'm interested to follow its evolution. As of today it doesn't support the world of analytical databases, but that's just a matter of time (and some new adapters).
