Bolt SQL - Fast and beautiful database client image

Bolt SQL is a brand-new database client from the makers of TablePlus.

This new client focuses on speed and more cloud integration so you can more easily share your setup across machines or with your team.

As a die-hard TablePlus user, I was excited to see this beta, and I noticed the speed as soon as I exported and imported data into it. Both felt instant. It's not 100% feature-complete with TablePlus, but I imagine it'll be pretty close once they finish the beta. Let's look at some of the features of this new app.

Differences between TablePlus and Bolt SQL

TablePlus mainly focuses on native experience and fast interaction with GUI. TablePlus runs completely on your machine, and all data is stored within it.

Bolt SQL moves to the cloud, allowing you new features like configuration synching on all users' devices, real-time collaboration, sharing charts and reports, and even more AI integration coming in the future.

Friendly GUI tool, blazing fast, and tracking-free

Bolt SQL cherry-picked the features you use the mostand made them easy to access. The top priorities are performance, security, and privacy.

Real-time collaboration

Bolt SQL supports real-time collaboration so you and your team can work together!

Shared workspaces

Sync and your data on all devices so you can work everywhere. Bolt SQL uses end-to-end encryption; no one can access it without the private key.


With Bolt SQL you can generate bar or line charts from your queries to easily visualize your data.

More features coming soon!

The Bolt SQL team is planning on implementing the following in the coming weeks:

  1. Integrating chatGPT and other LLMs to improve the autosuggestions.
  2. Support more charts and a dashboard builder.
  3. Support advanced filters for the table view.
  4. Add table structure/index/foreign key editor.
  5. Support more database drivers like DuckDB, Redis, etc.

Bolt SQL Pricing

You can use Bolt SQL for free on the basic plan, but that doesn't include any cloud features. If you want to try the beta, they include an early bird coupon in the top bar header of the site for 50% off.

Visit Bolt SQL for more details and try it. It works for MacOS and Windows, and a Linux version coming soon.
