I like MySQL and have been using each release of their GUI tools for Mac OS X and have slowly been getting used to the newer MySQL Workbench tool that replaced their previous GUI tools. I also use MAMP on some dev machines, so using both together is a must-do.
There is a way to setup MySQL Workbench with MAMP/MAMP Pro and these are the list of steps I did to get both apps to work together. There could be better ways so I'll update this post over time.
- Click "New Server Instance".
- Choose "localhost". Click Continue.
