How to Download and Install SQLyog Community Edition for Mac
SQLyog is a powerful GUI tool to manage MySQL and MariaDB servers and databases in physical, virtual, and cloud environments. SQLyog has no dependencies on runtimes (such as Microsoft .NET and Java) and database abstraction layers (such as ODBC and JDBC). SQLyog runs on Microsoft Windows. It may also run on Linux and Unix via Wine.
However, if you want to use SQLyog on a Mac, you need to install a Windows emulator first. There are several options available, such as Parallels Desktop, VMware Fusion, VirtualBox, or Boot Camp.
