  • Azure Data Studio

    A new database management tool from Microsoft, a lightweight version of Management Studio.

    • It runs on the Mac. I have not tested the other ones. Guest • 12 days ago Disagree   Agree
    • It's still in its infancy, but it does the basics. I can't picture myself actually developing in ADS, but that could change as time goes on. I already prefer to store my dev databases on Azure so that they are always available. Guest • Jun 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • There are a number of extensions available for AzureOperationsstudio that help with managing the SQL server. Guest • May 2019 Disagree   Agree
    • Preview for Windows has functionality of SSMS + better look-and-feel. For folks unaccustomed to writing/comprehending VS Code, some configuration tasks like adjusting interface settings may be a challenge. dbunchAug 2018 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

    • 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 1 disagrees Disagree   Agree
