Working with MySQL Doesn’t Have to Suck

That’s the tag line for Querious, an awesome MySQL database management tool from Araelium Group. It’s like MySQL Administrator combined with Sequel Pro.

Prior to Querious, I would have to use both of those other apps plus some CLI to manage all the data systems I’m responsible for. Now, with Querious I can use one GUI and resort to the CLI only when absolutely necessary. It has a lightweight feel like Sequel Pro plus you get the full administrative capabilities of MySQL Administrator + phpMyAdmin. If you have to import a massive SQL dump, either split it up or prepare for the app to crash (unless you modify max_allowed_packet).

All in all, Querious is a must-have for MySQL DBAs that work exclusively on a Mac and is definitely worth the $25 price tag…
