SQLAntaresia is a cross platform MySQL management tool aimed at both developers and system administrators with a simple user interface.


The application should work reasonably well on all the platforms where the dependencies can be satisfied (Linux, *BSD, OSX, Windows, ...), but at this point has only been tested on Linux operating systems and Windows XP 32bit.


The code is hosted on github

Clone command:

git clone git://


SQLAntaresia is a python 2.6+ application and it also depends upon the following external libraries:

  • PyQt4 (4.6+)
  • PyQt4 QScintilla bindings
  • paramiko
  • MySQL-python
  • DBUtils
  • setproctitle
  • PyCrypto (For unix only)

Build instructions
