Anyone care to extol the virtues of their favorite MySQL front end? Or do you find yourself launching the Terminal to "do it yourself"?
(I'm still looking for the answer to MS SQL Server Enterprise Manager.)
I used to develop some with VB Script/SQL Server 2000, and found Enterprise Manager very useful.
I'm looking for a product that works basically like Enterprise Manager, runs on OS X, and lets you administrate MySQL databases for use with PHP Web apps.
I've scoped out YourSQL, SQL 4x Manager J, CocoaMySQL, DBDesigner 4, and DataWerkz. (At this piont, rolling my own is not an option.) Anyone like any of these, or is there something better out there?
It has some nice features but probably the best one is the ability to copy databases and tables between sites (e.g. from your development machine to the remote site). It is also excellent for loading a table from an Excel file.
I use phpMyadmin for MySQL management but only because it's what the webhosts use. Otherwise, I like Navicat because it has a great interface and is a real application (not web-based).
Incidentally, I came upon a book called Mastering phpMyAdmin (check amazon) for those who, like me, are still new to dbases.
