SeeQL Title

Welcome to SeeQL (beta): An easy-to-use desktop application that helps you visualize your database tables (including all foreign and primary key relationships), to quickly generate complex queries.

Getting Started


You'll need a Postgres database to connect to.

How to Install

Beta Release 0.0.1

MacOS: seeql-0.0.1.dmg

Note: For now, you might need to go to your security settings to allow the app run on your system to allow the application to run.

Or from the terminal, run:

git clone
cd seeql
yarn run build
yarn start


Logging In

You have the option to log in with a postgres:// URI connection string, or enter your database credentials individually.


Viewing Database Information

After logging in, you'll see three sections - the side panel, the input box, and the database tables section. In the tables section, when you hover over a primary key in a table, any references to this primary key in other tables will be highlighted. Similarly, if you hover over a foreign key in a table, its related primary key will be highlighted.

Click on any table's info icon to view its information in the side panel.

Choose the Search option above the input box to filter which tables will be displayed. You can pin tables to the top of the page for your convinience by clicking on any table's pin icon.


Generating SQL queries & Viewing the results

You can write a SQL SELECT query in the SQL input box, or automatically generate a query by clicking on the rows of a table. Once your query is complete, click execute query. If your query has any errors, an error message will display telling you exactly where the error occured.


After clicking execute, you'll be able to see your results in the Results section. Clicking on a column name will sort your table data accordingly. You can filter which rows are visible by clicking the search icon next to each column name.
