SQL bro

Do you even?

alt text

A bare bones SQL client. This was built for Jahnel Group’s 2017 War Week, to satisfy my own desire for an SQL client that would make those things I need to do frequently as a mid-tier developer easy - without preventing doing anything else - with a minimal interface. It was also built to learn more about the Electron platform, practice using Vue.js, and try out a new styling framework. Built on electron-boilerplate-vue.

Prior Art

  • Sqlectron (https://github.com/sqlectron) - a similar project, better executed. ;-)
  • Sequel Pro - much of the UI inspiration.
  • MySql Workbench - "The Bench."

Build Setup

# install dependencies
npm install

# serve with hot reload at localhost:9080
npm run dev

# build electron app for production
npm run build

# lint all JS/Vue component files in `app/src`
npm run lint

# run webpack in production
npm run pack

  • Flesh out grid component: (exports as right-click); inline editing issuing an "update")
  • Make "multiple" response object into tabs.
  • Show other "objects" under schemas: triggers, events? with good icons.
  • Add Tests for days.
  • Add flyway integration?! Show what migration you're on, and if there are others to do: clean/migrate (dev/testing only! No prod!)
  • Move the passwords out of localstorage into https://github.com/atom/node-keytar.
  • Table Inspection: a way to see table's indexes, triggers, keys, columns, etc.
  • Add tagged groups to tables (i.e., a way to put tables into folders)


  • Adapt grid output (dates, bools, NULL (Add color!)) to better representation.
  • lock header at top!
  • Fix up QueryCompleter with a regex against prefix to add tables/columns. Maybe turn on auto?
  • add VARIABLE support to query window? What what!
  • Search option: find column (in all tables/procs)
  • Work on ReadMe. Follow guide below; change what's needed.
  • Sort on column header? (reissue with SELECT * FROM (query) ORDER BY header)
  • Find a way to report OS errors back to the UI, such as during the writes to logs


  • add multiple DB types (sql server, at least. mongO?)
  • Styling for days.
  • Easter eggs?
  • https://github.com/vue-comps/vue-resize-handle ?
