TablePlus is a databases application GUI for many database engines. At the time of writing, it supports MySQL, PostgreSQL, Amazon Redshift, SQL Server, SQLite, and MariaDB. Support for Oracle and CockroachDB are on the roadmap.
TablePlus has two plans: a free tier and paid subscription model. The limitations on the free plan at the time of writing include:
- Limit 4 Connections
- No theme customization
- Only 1 plugin allowed
- No cloud features
- Limit 2 tabs, 1 window, and 3 favorites
While the free plan is somewhat limiting, it’s feature-rich enough to allow you to try it out and see if it fits your workflow.
I am an avid Sequel Pro user, but one advantage that TablePlus has over Sequel Pro is support for multiple databases within the same application. It’s hard to find a decent GUI for SQLite, so this app might be great for working with SQLite. I find it very capable of working with MySQL as well.
Another product that supports multiple database engines in the same application is JetBrains’ DataGrip app, so you might want to check that out as well if you need a multi-database engine GUI.
Check out TablePlus.io to learn more and download the app on OS X. If you are on Windows, TablePlus should be releasing a Windows version in January 2018.
