"An alternative to MySQL Management dashboards."

What do you like best?

Lightweight Web Based MySQL Management application.

It's plain simple to use. You upload a folder to your desired host, open a web browser pointing such location and voila!

At the login screen you setup HOST, User and Password. Then, the magic happens. User management, database data browsing and editing databases structures, importing and exporting data, and finally queries.

Definitely a full fledged low consumption web app to manage your databases.

What do you dislike?

Source code hasn't been maintained in a while, although it's fully functional right now, it could use some updates. Maybe a responsive web design is desired by users, so you can use it in your phone / tablet browser with ease.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Are you tired of another web based MySQL managers? Give SQL Buddy a shot, you can get it running in less than 30 seconds! Extract, upload to desired host, visit the remote host URL and you're done!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy MySQL remote management. All you have to do is setup your MySQL instances to allow remote connections, upload this software anywhere you can run it and get access to your databases painlessly.

"Best lightweight MySQL webapp out there."

What do you like best?

Whenever I'm working with MySQL databases I will always use SQL Buddy, simple, great UI and powerful, there's no need for something more complicated or server-heavy. If you're not doing something rather complicated with your databases, i can tell you it will fulfill your needs.

What do you dislike?

The webdesign could use some work, it should work in as many screens sizes as possible. It lacks of query auto completion, but as i said, if you aren't doing something really complicated with your databases, it should fit.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need a handy, easy to use and really light app to manage a MySQL database, give this one a try, it will do the trick, you'll get hooked to it in no time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to use MySQL app, you will find yourself not needing a desktop application while using this tool. Simple SQL jobs can be done with it.

"Handy, lightweight database development tool"

What do you like best?

SQL Buddy is a super handy little app for seeing a birds eye view of your databases. Would I use it in production? No. But when it comes to the small tasks that need to be done when developing a web app, it hands down beats the heavyweights like PHPMyAdmin.

The setup time is tiny, the UI is clean, it uses asynchronous requests for many of the operations making it fast – which is really the key feature when developing something with a database backend. You can easily reset and view data far faster than a DBs command-line tools or a heavier one.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes its relative lack of features can leave you searching the menus for a command, when you end up having wasted that time and needing to use a bigger tool anyway.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It greatly sped up my time spent managing and creating new database prototypes in development, and the viewing of the output of SQL queries in preparation for putting them into my code.

"An alternative to MySQL Management web apps."

What do you like best?

Easy to use, versatile and minimalistic UI. You can get it up and running as fast as how fast you can upload it to your server. You can get access to any remote or local server no matter where you're running your sql buddy app.

What do you dislike?

There should be a responsive web design template, and they should keep it up to date, maybe give it some no-sql db functionalities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Many mysql management suites can be a little too much for what you might need. SQL Buddy can fulfil basic sql tasks in a minimalistic and simple interface. You should give it a shot, no regrets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Easy to setup MySQL management web app, it comes really handy if you're running a flash drive with a portable web server to keep track of your services or anything related.

"Simple and amazing"

What do you like best?

It's great to be able to manage my SQL tables on the web. It's cross platform and much simpler than using a command line interface.

What do you dislike?

There aren't many things that I dislike about this software. But the look of the interface is a bit hard to use and not entirely nice looking.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SQL buddy is great, but make sure your SQL tables are secure and not vulnerable to attackers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've been able to manage SQL tables easier than ever before no matter what platform I'm on or what browser I'm using.

What do you like best?

Free, open source, easy to install, slick and responsive ajaxiified UI that also provides user ability to manually enter sql

I have no complaints - I suspect that since it is not as widely supported and developed by one person, it may not be as secure
