There is a link to it in my comment. It allows you to graphically design and modify your database by applying high level constructs such as buttons, checkboxes and select drop down lists, instead of having to write SQL DDL manually.

It makes it 100 times easier to create a database, at least for me. It supports SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL and SQLite …

Showed our experimental app to a potential user last week and the next day he emailed us saying a colleague saw him using it and said "what the h*ll are you using?! This is amazing!"

He shared that quote with us and it was great to hear.

Also, one person has entered the planning contest we posted on dev.to ; and he left a very encouraging reply.

And believe it or not, there's a whole amazing, helpful community tied to it just like web development! Pretty neat. Another direction to stretch some Java and JavaScript skills 🧑‍💻
