Love Beekeeper Studio and want to help, but can't write code? We have some ideas for you.
Top feature: It's smooth 🍫, fast 🏎, and you'll actually enjoy using it 🥰
One of our frustrations with other open-source SQL editors and database managers is that they take a 'kitchen sink' approach to features, adding so many features that the UI becomes cluttered and hard to navigate. We wanted a good looking, open source SQL workbench that's powerful, but also easy to use. We couldn't find one, so we created it!
Beekeeper Studio supports connecting to the following databases:

We have you covered, read our guide to contributing in 10 minutes without coding.
Want to write some code and improve Beekeeper Studio? Getting set-up is easy on Mac, Linux, or Windows.
# First: Install NodeJS 12+, NPM, and Yarn # ... # 1. Fork the Beekeeper Studio Repo (click fork button at top right of this screen) # 2. Check out your fork: git clone [email protected]:<your-username>/beekeeper-studio.git beekeeper-studio cd beekeeper-studio/ yarn install # installs dependencies # Now you can start the app: yarn run electron:serve ## the app will now start
This repo is now a monorepo, we have several places with code, but only really a couple of important entry points.
All app code lives in
apps/studio, some shared code lives in
shared/src. This is shared with other apps.
Beekeeper Studio has two entry points:
background.js- this is the electron-side code that controls native things like showing windows.
main.js- this is the entry point for the Vue.js app. You can follow the Vue component breadcrumbs from
App.vueto find the screen you need.
Generally we have two 'screens':
build/release-notes.mdwith the latest release notes. Follow the format that is there.
git log <last-tag>..HEAD --oneline | grep 'Merge pull'to find PRs merged
git tag v<version>. It must start with a 'v'
git push origin <tagname>
This should also publish the latest docs
Beekeeper Studio wouldn't exist without Sqlectron-core, the core database libraries from the Sqlectron project. Beekeeper Studio started as an experimental fork of that repository. A big thanks to @maxcnunes and the rest of the Sqlectron community.
