Getting Started
SQLTools is a set of VS Code extensions that connect to, query, and display results from a SQL database manager. (See a full list of supported databases here).

The installation process is straightforward:

  • Open VS Code
  • Click the Extensions view (in the left bar), then search for @tag:sqltools-driver. This lists all the drivers available for SQLTools.
  • Install the driver for your database. This also installs the core SQLTools extension.
  • Click the SQLTools icon (in the left bar)
  • Create a connection to your database. To do this, hover over CONNECTIONS in the SQLTools pane. Click the "Add New Connection" icon and choose the driver and enter the connection parameters.
  • You can then open and query it from within VS Code.

Our aim is to build a tool that is genuinely helpful for developers. Therefore we welcome any feedback or additional feature requests – please submit them through the GitHub Issue system.

If you need help sooner, get in touch with the maintainers directly – we might be able to help you out.
