G'day everyone, I've got Rails up and running, but am having trouble finding a stable MySQL client for OSX. I was looking at the 'Creating a weblog in 15 minutes' screencast from rubyonrails.org - what MySQL client is David using? I've found the MySQL clients (Administrator / Query Browser) to be highly unstable and rather pathetic under OSX. If David is indeed running Admin/QB I'll cry myself into a slab of VB. Cheers, Stephen

Try PHPMyAdmin .. http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/index.php It's a php web app so you'll need a php enabled web server to run it. Lot's of features.

I don't know which one he is using, but i really like the MySQL client from Navicat, as this one is very stable and has some advanced features other clients do not offer. the one, which i like the most is the option to tunnel the connection through a ssh connection. this way, you do not have to allow mysql connection from other servers than localhost, but still be able to work on the servers database. there is also a PostgreSQL version available.

If you get CocoaMySQL, be aware that the main version you find out there (0.5) does not support the newer password scheme of 4.1+. So if you're using a newer install of mySQL, grab the CocoaMySQL version here: http://cocoamysql.sourceforge.net/beta/CocoaMySQL_... There's another beta there that doesn't have the password hack.

I'll download the latest beta and check it out :) Navicat looks pretty good, although if I spend any money on software I might have to convert to PostgreSQL because its my preferred platform. I noticed they have a pgsql client which looks cool.. Thanks for your replies everyone...!

I have used Navicat but didn't like it. CocoaMySQL is very good, you can get it from sourceforge.net. I also use the Query Browser available for free in the download section of MySQL.com pretty sweet since it has the help built right in the client, although it is a working progress; but you should check it out.

There's also YourSQL which is pretty good, and seems too have been updated more recently. http://yoursql.ludit.it/

Navicat is the only tool I will use - Mac or PC. A DB connection tool is something you use every day, break down and pay for a good one. Cocoamysql and yoursql are garbage to me.

I've used all three, and paid for Navicat. I honestly prefer CocoaMysql. Jamie

Though after seeing the migrations screencast I'm switching to do everything with them instead. jpb -- Joe Block <email@example.com> Have GNU, will travel.

At the same time, I really liked the way of building database gradually using migrations (I think Chad Fowler demonstrated it very well in the Rails Recipes book). Best Regards, Roustem.
