DataGrip is not a language-specific IDE. It supports a wide variety of languages by default, such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Derby, H2, Sqlite, and many more. You can also specify your own JDBC drivers to get support for additional platforms. See More
DataGrip is Jetbrains' independent database IDE. Most of the features inside of DataGrip are implemented in the other IDEs, however if you just want to edit some databases, this is one of the best tools to get. Even though it is expensive, I still recommend it. If you are in education and you want to get these tools for free, you most certainly can! Jetbrains has an education license (and also links in with GitHub for Education) that you can get for a year and can renew as long as you're still in education. This license covers all of their products, too. See More
Lewis Crichton's Experience
A powerful table editor lets you add, remove, edit, and clone data rows. Navigate through the data by foreign keys and use the text search to find anything in the data displayed in the table editor. All your changes are stored locally and can be submitted at once. Multiple fields can also be edited at once. See More
As with all other IDEs, DataGrip is powerful and thus requires more resources than usual. It can use up to several GB's of memory when working with high-volume databases, and this has an impact on performance if your system is not equipped to handle it. See More
Started using it 10 years ago, because I am using Linux at home and this is a cross-platform tool, based on Java. We are using it with Oracle, MS SQL Server and probably soon PostgreSQL. Currently we are five people in our department using it regularly. Having some users stuck on old Office versions, we extract a lot of (summarized) data into XLS files. Pasting large SQL scripts into the editor can be quite slow. For any newcomer the biggest obstacle is that you have to separately download the database driver for your database yourself (apparently a legal issue) and then config the connection parameters correctly. It's the 1st entry in their FAQ for a reason. See More
SSMS eats up a lot of disk space and memory, but Microsoft seems to have addressed the issue in the newest version, quote "The current size of the bundle is less than half of what SSMS 17.x is (~400 MB). The size will eventually grow a little when the IS components are added back to SSMS, but it should not be as large as it used to be." https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/sql-server-management-studio-changelog-ssms?view=sql-server-2017 See More
