Froq is a tool for rapid database querying, providing access to different databases
Froq is a tool for rapid database querying, providing access to different databases. Froq 2 brings you enhanced, natural, easy, fast and fun access to your Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server and SQLite databases.
Froq 2 comes with many enhancements over the previous version, focusing on both usability and widening the range of supported databases, while offering a fresh and new interface.
The Froq Main Window
Froq has been extended to support more than just OracleВ®. Now Froq supports Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server as well as SQLite.
See the compatibility section for more information on the support of these databases.
A whole new experience
The Interface has been refreshed from top to bottom, to blend more with all your other Mac OS X applications.
Froq windows now support tabs to group your documents together, Froq provides you with the flexibility to re-arrange them as well as drag them out to form new windows.
Drag & Drop Filtering
The 'QuickFilter' has been extended to allow for more than one filter via an very recognizable interface. Furthermore with the new 'QuickFilter' you can now easily drop results from your current resultset onto the filter area, to start filtering immediately.
The Froq Info panel
You can now even drop results onto other tables (in the browser to the left) to start querying the target table, using the resultsets of your current selection.
The 'QuickFilter' has now also been extended with a 'custom filter' option, this allows you to make your selections as complex as needed directly in the main interface.
Froq Table Info
The Froq Info window has been updated, to show more information wherever possible. The Interface has been update to offer an easier navigable window. You can load info for more than Tables only, you can request Index and constraints info as well.
Froq Table Info, now even can show DDL info on different types of database object. This is, however, dependent on the database you use. See the compatibility section for more information.
The Froq Export panel
Froq's Export feature has been rewritten, to speed up the exporting of resultsets.
From now on you can export your resultsets, requiring only minimal system resources while not restricted to any limits other than some database might apply.
Need more dan simple browsing and editing ? No Problem ! With Froq's SQL Editor your can directly communicate with your database with the standard SQL Language. Froq allows for parameter input when supplied, and allows for your database to analyze your query (when supported).
Froq's printing functionality has been improved. You are now able to print resultsets, SQL commands and the results of an analysis. When necessary Froq asks you what to print, otherwise it will automatically choose the logical option for you.
Froq SQL Editor, with analysis function
Froq has been updated to perform better and faster there where possible. Many parts have been updated to work separately, not keeping the whole application busy, keeping you from working on other connections.
For instance the Information panel is now directly available using a separate connection to retrieve its information, and thus allowing your current work to continue.
Other automated features help work even faster, for instance Froq will connect in the background and check if your connection information is still up to date, and will update it if necessary, so you no longer have to do that yourself. This way you'll stay up to date with your own as well as changes made by others.
The new connection panel, allows you to easily organize all of your connections. You can now give them all a custom description and order them the way you wish, maintain a list of favorite connection for a better overview and even pre-select a tab label color for every connection.
For those who like there connection database server organized the tree-view is still available by the click of a button.
Froq contains multiple assistants, which can help you create simple objects, like tables or indexes, which can be very welcome of you don't speak fluent SQL.
The Froq Table Creation Assistant
You can use those assistants to create the object for you, or use its result as a base script, from which you continue. Either way, you can create database objects in just a few steps.
Mac OS X integration
Froq now further integrates with the rest of your software. It not only comes with a Spotlight plugin, to easy find your saved 'SQL Scripts' later, but now also provides a QuickLook plugin.
