Subject:Is there a professional quality mySQL GUI for Linux?
View as plain text  
Can anyone recommend a real, quality, professional level mySQL GUI for
Linux? 
KDE, Gnome, whatever. Doesn't matter. Beggars can't be choosers right.

Something along the lines of SQLYog (Enterprise ideally).

I'm kind of disappointed that I can't seem to find anything. They're all
either some Admin tool designed to setup users and all that stuff. Yawn. Or
they're so limited, I might as well just use an XP VMWare and a windows GUI
client instead.

Sadly SQLYog has no intentions of porting to Linux :-\

mySQL Query Browser is for the most part useless. It's v1.1.18 and gives
almost no benefit to using the CLI mode. You can't sort by clicking
headings. They UI is awkward to use. You can't even set the font sizes, so
it's HUGE (at least in my KDE it is).

mySQL Workbench is "Alpha", and I couldn't even get it to connect to the
localhost server (despite the other tools in that package "work")!!?

phpMyAdmin is wonderful -- for a Web UI tool. But not very practical for
serious development.

Anything else in my search is either equally amateur or simply just an
inactive or dead project.

How is it that mySQL is effectively a Linux native tool for all intents and
purposes, yet there isn't nearly the level of GUIs for it that there are for
Windows?!
