Firstly, it's free. But not free in a sketchy ad-supported freemium way. Beekeeper Studio is 100% MIT open source, and we are committed to providing a privacy-respecting, full featured SQL client for years to come.
Sometimes it's the little things, like when you paste a MySQL url into Beekeeper Studio we automatically parse out the user, host, port, and database name.
Still not convinced? Hmm.... well here is a super compelling list of features.
We're a small team of two people building software we care about. We're not part of a big corporation, and we don't have our own database to sell you. We use databases on a daily basis, and we got frustrated that there wasn't a straightforward and approachable cross-platform SQL client we could enjoy using, so we built one 😀
We hope you enjoy using Beekeeper Studio as much as we enjoy making it.
Give Beekeeper Studio a try.
