myEASYdb is a WordPress plugin created to help managing your MySQL tables in the easiest and quickest way.
This version of myEASYdb let’s you browse and edit your exhisting tables by simply setting the name of the database you want to edit.
You can also define relations between fields. Relations can be defined when a field includes a value that is the key of another table.
By setting a relation you will be able to choose the field value by selecting the description of the related table in a drow down menu.
Future releases will include a wide range of operations on your MySQL tables like, for example:
tables design, fields validation setup, tables maintenance, print/export to PDF and CSV (comma separated text files), etc.
If you like to see myEASYdb in action check the Intro video.
Please note that this is my first WordPress plugin thus the minimum WordPress required version is 2.9.1 — the latest available version when I started to code the plugin.
If you are successfully using this plugin with an older WordPress version, please let me know!

- On which browsers do you test myEASYdb?
I develop and test the plugin on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome on Ubuntu Linux.
I do regulary upgrade the browsers to the latest versions as soon as they became available.
Everynow and then I do also test on IE8 in a VirtualBox environment.
