Open Source ArcType Alternative

Beekeeper Studio, like ArcType, is easy to use, and has an intuitive interface. Unlike ArcType, Beekeeper Studio still exists :-).

Arctype got destroyed, and I searched an alternative and found Beekeeper Studio :-) - Radu

Beekeeper Studio is an independently run SQL editor and database manager. We offer two editions of Beekeeper Studio, a Community Edition which is free and open source, but has limited features, and the full commercial edition available for download here.

Beekeeper Studio is run by me, Matthew. I haven’t taken investment, and I’m not looking for an ‘exit’, I’m here to build software on my own terms, that means - open source, easy to use, and not full of spyware.

In fact, Beekeeper Studio launched a year earlier than ArcType, and because most of Beekeeper Studio is open source, you can be assured that we’ll be here for many years to come.

😍 You'll Love Beekeeper Studio

I built Beekeeper Studio because I got fed up with overly complex database apps that I had to re-learn every time I used them. I wanted something fast and light that felt like VSCode or Sublime Text, but for SQL.

Spoiler: I couldn't find a good app that fit my criteria, so I built one. That's why Beekeeper Studio exists today.

🕶 Intuitive and easy to use

Beekeeper Studio is the only cross-platform database client with a fast, modern UI that feels like it was built this century. Beekeeper is designed to be fast, smooth, and user friendly in a way that most database apps are not.

Beekeeper Studio fits right in. I didn’t have to take hours to figure out how to properly use it, and it was a seamless addition to my toolkit - CS

🔌 Easily manage multiple connections

Beekeeper Studio supports a wide range of databases, such as SQLite, Postgres, and even Oracle. Easily identify different environments by color coding each connection, and the whole app will change to match when you connect.

Nice support for multiple environments (I label prod red, dev yellow, localhost green) - Chander

🐧 Cross-platform (for real)

Beekeeper Studio works the same on MacOS, Windows, and Linux. Like you, we tinker with all types of computers, so we want our software to be top-notch, even especially on Linux.

Beekeeper Studio has a consistent experience across OSes, and syncs my connections between computers and OSes. - Jeff

💄 Not just a pretty face

Ctrl/Cmd+P - quicksearch your database and saved queries

Beekeeper Studio may have a minimal, modern aesthetic, but it also packs a punch.

Whether you're looking to quickly and easily edit data, write SQL like a pro, create & modify tables, or even share queries with coworkers, Beekeeper Studio has you covered.

Beekeeper Studio’s attention to design (both visual and functionalities) helps ease the work - Long
