Datazenit Desktop Edition

We are proud to announce Datazenit Desktop Edition for Windows, Mac and Linux. The new desktop edition is built on top of Electron framework and offers better UX and integration with operating system.

Datazenit Desktop App – Modern GUI for MySQL and PostgreSQL

Datazenit is a modern database administration tool for MySQL and PostgreSQL.

Last month we launched Datazenit 1.0.0, our first public release. Up until now Datazenit was only available as a self-hosted web-based app that had to be started from terminal and accessed via browser. We thought that we can do better and decided to build a fully-integrated desktop application that is easier to use and quicker to try out.

Datazenit Desktop Edition works on all major operating systems: Mac OS X, Linux 32/64bit and Windows. The Windows package comes bundled with Java, but on other operating systems you will have to make sure that Java is present on the system.

Datazenit Desktop and Server Editions are available for download.

Introducing Datazenit Community

We have created a community forum for all interested parties - beta users, our customers, database enthusiasts and developers. It is powered by an excellent open source discussion platform Discourse, created by Jeff Atwood. Authorization works using existing Datazenit Store accounts – you just need to use the "Sign in" button in the forum and you will be logged in via This is implemented via SSO which is supported in Discourse out of box.

Don't forget to introduce yourself – we would love to hear more about you. If you have something you are currently working on and want to share there is a topic for that. Another topic worth checking out is the official Changelog thread where we post latest release info. During the beta testing period we are releasing a new version at least once a week.

Datazenit is moving to Scala

The beta release got a little bit delayed because we are currently moving Datazenit to Scala. Scala is a scalable, statically typed and object-functional programming language. It compiles to Java bytecode, which runs on Java Virtual Machine. Why should you care? JVM allows more flexible deployments to cross-platform targets and will make the setup for self-hosted customers a breeze. Scala's type system has made Datazenit less prone to bugs and has improved the overall performance.

When we first started Datazenit the language of choice was Python. Since then the project has evolved, we have learned our target audience better, and Python has become less suitable for the goals we are trying to achieve.

This may sound like huge change, but in fact it is not. The good news is that the move to Scala is 90% finished. You can expect an update pretty soon.

Great software takes time and we don't want to make any compromises on that regard.

Visualization early preview

Datazenit is currently in alpha version. Closed testing has begun and tonight we think it's time to shed some light on one of the key features of Datazenit: visualizations. We are planning to release Datazenit with at least six types of charts: line, spline, scatter, pie, bar and area chart. The range of charts will be continuously extended. Community will be able to extend functionality for Datazenit, e.g., via 3rd party plugins.

Some of the already available settings of visualizations can be seen in the examples below – it's a select from a movie rental database.

Regular line chart with stacked values

Visualizations can be edited in the settings box alongside, the changes appear in real time. The same goes for editing the select query – data set is updated instantly.

Pie chart

Visualizations can be customized by adjusting pre-defined chart themes, line width, opacity and curve smoothing options, legend positioning and format, labels on axis, resizing chart & more.

This is our first post in a series of upcoming insights into Datazenit leading up to the beta test. Stay tuned!

What is Datazenit?

Datazenit is a web based solution for database administration. Its abilities go beyond the standard tools of a rich content editor, and include data visualizations, an intelligent schema builder, and many other features that ease and enhance database management. Datazenit is designed to make databases accessible, safe and easy to use.

Our final goal is to support many different data sources, but we will start with some of the most popular relational databases: MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle & MSSQL.
