    • This seems a really promising project. Now just a "preview" (alpha i guess? version 0.24). Hopefully this will evolve in a truly great SSMS alternative for Linux. Guest • Dec 2017 • 1 agrees and 0 disagrees Disagree   Agree

    • It's look promising. It still in in early stage of preview (maybe late alpha or early beta), but it can do basic needs to access sql server. the UI also quite neat. No clutters visible at the moment. Hopefully, it can have more advance features SSMS has in the future. What surprise me is that this app is based on electronjs, a javascript framework for desktop apps which leave small footprint on my system. kurotsukiMay 2018 Disagree   Agree
