A question guys, I'm looking for a DB client. We are using SQL Management Server Studio, but its way way overkill for a frontend guy like me.

Min Requirements:
- Needs to be simple
- Must support MSSQL
- Plugin support and/or dark mode
- Free and/or not too buggy evaluation (like Sublime or Winrar)
- GUI should be reasonably modern
- Should also be native. Our database is a denormalized mess.

    There is a mssql extension for vs code. This might give what you are looking for. I've never used it though, I just use the features in MS Sql management studio that I need.

    This got me interested so I installed the mssql extension. It looks useful but is missing a server explorer. After a bit of searching I found something else, the SQL operations studio, which might be worth taking a look at.

    @Robinha Is there a difference between it and Azure Data Studio?

    @theuser I don't think so. It looks like they rebranded it to Azure Data Studio

    Not native, not dark, but supports any database that has JDBC driver and works quite nice: DBeaver

    Not cheap, but very comfy to use and supports many databases: DataGrip

    Personaly I use DataGrip (as a plugin for IntelliJ). Couldn't be happier.

    I mostly use DataGrip, but recently I found Valentina Studio which supports MSSQL and is very nice
