    MySQL GUI

    We at Eliacom have developed a new, open source online MySQL GUI.

    Check out our MySQL GUI Demo here.

    You can also download the MySQL GUI and install it on your server from our download page.

    One other neat thing, is that because we are in the beta release of our MySQL GUI, we're actually paying $10 for each unique bug that is logged. Learn more about reporting bugs in our MySQL GUI here.

    We also have Tutorials for our MySQL GUI that will show you how to install and use the system.

    MySQL GUI Tools Features:
    • Manage MySQL data, format, and relationships
    • Review and repeat database events from log
    • Excel-like interface for CRUD interactions
    • Manage all MySQL relationships with foreign keys
    • Complex referential integrity with cascading modification capabilities
    • Export MySQL data to Excel readable or SQL file formats
    • Personalized views including custom filtering, column ordering, and naming
    • Save and categorize queries
    • Manage MySQL indexes to speed up database performance


    MySQL GUI Tools Add-ons:

    • Custom input fields and validation make it easier to enter data
    • Drop-down lists and data parameters impose referential integrity to improve ease of input
    • Drag and drop for multiple list items
    • Simplified custom views gives you the same versatility of SQL with easier user interface
    • Easy traversing of all database relationships
    • Single window view of data and all relationships relevant to that data


    MySQL GUI Tools Additional Capabilities:

    • No installation necessary as system runs in internet browser
    • Supports hosted environment
    • Built with integrated security and data validation
    • Compatible with all major browsers
    • Tested with MySQL version 5 and PHP version 5.2 and 5.3


    We also do custom MySQL development and consulting, so let us know if you need advanced help.

    could you take a moment please and explain how your product can be both open-source and at the same time, cost $100

    you're up against some pretty stiff competition in the likes of mysql's own products, which are free, and heidisql, which is also free and which i will not give up for anything less than another free front end which would have to be a damned sight better

    also, where is the download for your code? because if you don't offer the code, you cannot really call it open source

    Thanks for you input!

    Being open source and unfree are not mutually exclusive. However, we only sell support, not the actual software, so it is free. See our MySQL GUI Support Page. There is a place to donate if people want to do that.

    The competition is pretty tough. Our system is made to be installed onto web servers though, and is accessible anywhere through a web browser. That means linux, mac, windows, whatever, without any installation on the client machine. That is hard to come by (unless you're talking phpMyAdmin).

    While it doesn't have all the functionality that some of the more mature desktop products have (we're of course working on that), it also does some things that the other products don't do: very advanced data validation, the way we navigate relationships is easier, and making very dynamic custom forms is a cinch.

    We're also preparing for releases of a number of add-on products that will bring open-to-the-world-forms, reporting, shared calendars, case management, and a few other things. Creating your own add-ons to the system also isn't hard, and we'll post some instructions eventually how you can do that at some point.

    You can download the full source code on the MySQL GUI Download Page. We also house the code under version control (for bug tracking, etc.) at LaunchPad.

    So open source, check.
    Free, check.

    We're definitely looking for constructive criticism as we develop if people have suggestions for things they think would be very useful (and perhaps isn't readily available elsewhere).

    either you guys made a recent major overhaul of your web site, or else i was on some other internet the other day, where it said download for 14 days, then please purchase a license

    We did recently make some changes in licensing to go completely free (for commercial use as well as personal). I thought all the changes had been pushed out before I made the post here. I guess was wrong, unless it's possible that you somehow saw a cached version of the website.

    Anyhow, sorry about the mixup. It is available for free now.
