Screenshots and features of HeidiSQL
The very first dialog which asks for hostname and credentials. The list of wanted databases can be limited and sorted alphabetically.
Establishing connections to MariaDB/MySQL servers through an SSH tunnel, using plink.exe.
Administer MariaDB/MySQL accounts as easily as a toy. A pulldown showing assigned database objects reveals everything.
The list of currently running processes. Used to analyze executed SQL and to kill bad processes.
Details about tables and views. Switchable column headers. Used to rename, delete, empty and modify tables.
Table contents editable in a grid. Switchable columns and sorting orders. Various filtering mechanisms.
BLOBs can contain various file formats. HeidiSQL displays JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, PSD and some more image formats in a quick preview box.
SQL query editing: Customizable syntax highlighting, snippet files, completion proposal pulldown and editable results.
Find and replace text in query editors, supporting regular expressions with callbacks. This dialog also supports searching and replacing in table rows!
Open Large Files
When SQL files are bigger, HeidiSQL asks you to run these without loading them as a whole into the query editor
Dump selected databases and data into a single dump file, one file per table, directly to another host, to clipboard or to another database on the same server. Nearly as fast as mysqldump!
Save the result of any data grid to CSV, HTML, XML, LaTeX, Wiki markup or PHP files.
Import CSV or delimited files produced by spread sheet applications directly into a MariaDB/MySQL table. Users which are not allowed to execute LOAD DATA can activate a client-side parser.
Read lots of files per batch into BLOBs, using macros for neighbour fields. Binary safe.
Keeps your HeidiSQL version up to date with the latest features and bugfixes. Can be invoked automatically by option.
