We open DataGrip 2017.3 EAP

Hello! There is a long tradition of letting you try out our new product features before the official release, so welcome DataGrip 2107.3 Early Access Program.

EAP_DataGrip_20173EAP@2x_splash

This version improves the workflow with consoles and files, adds new Execute actions and introduces right alignment of numbers. Let’s take a closer look at the new features:

Ability to choose a console

The context menu in the data source was upgraded. Choose Jump to Console and you’ll now have a menu which allows you to quickly switch between consoles which were created already.

EAP_JumpToConsole

The same options will appear when attaching the console to a file.

EAP_AttachConsole

Several Execute actions

There was only one Execute action before; now there are three of them. Change the behavior, and assign shortcuts: they are completely independent. For example, you can create an action which will execute the whole script, without having to choose the exact query from the script.

EAP_ExecuteActions

JOIN statement completion

It became even smarter! Now it offers you the variant with the complete clause.

Right-side alignment of numerical data

For better readability, now DataGrip aligns the numerical data in the table editor with the right hand side of the column.

EAP_Align

Choosing schemas

We moved Schemas… node from the database tree, now use Context menu → Database tools → Manage selected schemas or simply press Alt+Enter on the data source.

EAP_schemas

DataGrip now prompts you to choose a database/schema along with a data source when you try to run an SQL file from the context menu.

EAP_SchemasInRun

And there is a small improvement for those who didn’t like to use the mouse to choose the schema of the console or the search path.

EAP_ShortcutForChooser

Now there is an action called Set Current Schema. You can assign a shortcut or invoke it from Find Action (Cmd/Ctrl+Shift+A).

EAP_SetCurSChema

Support for Exasol

We added the support for Exasol database, thanks to authors for their help! And we’ll be happy to hear the feedback from those, who use Exasol.

EAP_Exasol

Other enhancements
– Time is always displayed in UTC.
– Generate DDL on tables node doesn’t include views anymore.
– DDL generation for tables is better.
– DDL generation in MySQL works with escaped quotation marks. But the fix can raise performance problems. See details.
– All attributes (except obj_file and ink_symbol) are generated in the function DDL for PostgreSQL.

That’s it! Your feedback is welcome in our twitter, forum and the issue tracker.

  1. What would be extremely useful for me is if DataGrip could support graphical relation changes to a set of table schemas, such as clicking and drawing relations, with the ability to forward engineer those changes. Will that feature come to light? Thanks.

    I find it difficult to believe that yet again no attention has been paid to the issues of im- and exporting so-called “CSV” files generated by Microsoft Excel or Access.
    In ALL European countries, except IRL and the UK perhaps, these files use semicolons to separate values within a row. But way worse, a comma is used as a decimal separator!
    Datagrip has no facilities or options to import these values other than as TEXT.
    My fingers are itching to solve this problem. It can’t take more than half a day get this done.
