Navicat

By Deane Barker on January 6, 2005

Navicat – the World’s Best MySQL GUI: I worked with a lot of MySQL clients, but this is — by far — the best I’ve seen. Gorgeous interface, and support for all the cool upcoming features of MySQL 5.

It’s $95, but if you work with MySQL a lot, this would be invalulable. Put it together with a copy of PHPRunner and you’d really have something. Versions for Windows, Linux, and OS X.

  1. Navicat? Really? I downloaded the trial based on your post, but man, I didn’t find it very good at all. I use EMS’s Mysql Manager (http://www.sqlmanager.net/products/mysql/manager) and I just don’t see Navicat’s power. I’m not knocking your opinion, just don’t see what navicat offers that phpMyadmin doesn’t offer.

    Also your link to PHPrunner is busted, Its now http://www.xlinesoft.com/phprunner/

    PHPrunner seems cool for some, PHPLens is also a great alternative, but uber expensive and has a recurring cost model.

    Peace.

  2. I haven’t used the other ports, but “Navicat” for MacOS X works well. Sure I haven’t pushed it the limits, but for what I want it works well. Also has versions for Windows and Linux. I took a look at “EMS’s Mysql Manager “, but there is no Mac version.

    Another tool I came across was “Aqua Data Studio”, written completely in Java. Its not as nice as Navicat, IMO, but it should work anywhere that Java does.

  3. Hey guys , Mutant is absolutely rite. i really go with his words sqlyog is really awesome tool where i found my best and reaping best out it. why pay unnecessary to navicat?? just go for sqlyog :)
