SQL Surfer 2.0 is a web 2.0 SQL editor and all-in-one browser-based IDE for database development. It boasts a cutting edge AJAX interface fueled by jQuery and a true code editor powered by Edit Area. SQL Surfer 2.0 runs on any ColdFusion server (version 6.1 and up, enhanced for CF8) and any Firefox or WebKet based (Safari, Chrome) web browser.

With a quickly growing list of features, I wanted to get a project page up to share the progress.

The current development version is relatively stable, but with a handful of interface bugs and a number of features I still want to add.

NEW * 1/16/2012 - Tweaked the build, fixed some bugs. You still have to build it from source, but it's pretty easy.

Last Update:

Just updating some news about recent tweaks.


The SQL Surfer build process creates two versions of the application. One for Coldfusion 6.1 and 7 with basic features, and one for ColdFusion 8, enhanced with a database schema browser.

SQL Surfer is a 1-file deployment standalone tool. If you attempt to save a query to disk, you will need disk write access (to the same folder).
