Beekeeper Studio is a modern, and performant database GUI that supports Postgres, Oracle, SQL Server and more, and has full feature parity across MacOS, Linux, and Windows.
Beekeeper Studio was perfect when I began using all three major OSes regularly. - Jeff
Hi, I’m Matthew, I launched Beekeeper Studio in 2020 after becoming frustrated that no database manager for Linux or Windows was as fun or easy to use as Postico.
Like Postico, Beekeeper Studio prioritizes modern design, and an easy to use interface. However, unlike Postico, Beekeeper Studio also works on both Windows, and Linux. In fact, I run all 3 OSes regularly, so cross-platform parity is really important to me, and I think it really shows in the app.
Beekeeper Studio is also almost entirely open source. I publish both the free open source version of Beekeeper Studio, and a full commercial version with more features (like import/export). I probably shouldn’t tell you this, but if you’re using Postgres, the free open source version will likely work great for you.
Probably the biggest benefit to Beekeeper Studio over Postico, even for Mac users, is that Beekeeper Studio supports all the major relational databases, including MySQL, SQL Server, Sqlite, and Oracle.
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.
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
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
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
Beekeeper Studio may have a minimal, modern aesthetic, but it also packs a punch.
Beekeeper Studio’s attention to design (both visual and functionalities) helps ease the work - Long
