Moving to Mac: MySQL

Ok, first off… MySQL folks, please get that next release out as soon as possible. It sucks that MySQL won’t start automatically. Now that that’s out the way…

The MySQL GUI tools are, well, just like their Windows counterparts. They work, more or less, and get you by. On the PC, I used SQLYog. It’s a great tool that does great things. For the Mac, I found Navicat. It seems to do everything I needed it to, which includes basic structure edits, import, export and moving of data/structure across hosts. It also has niceties of some more advanced programs, including scheduled backups, GUI builders, and so on.

I think I’ve found a winner, and it turns out that for those of you stuck with Windows, you can get a version for that OS too.
