Installing sqlyog on Mac OS X Yosemite

I like to use sqlyog for my work with mysql, but only windows binaries are supplied on the google code site.

Another option is to use sqlyog in wine, so to install wine a simpler option is to use Homebrew (

Installation for homebrew is quite straightforward, however you need to have installed the command line tools with xcode, if not please install that first.

The installation instructions are already on the first page of the homebrew website, so i will not reproduce this, once brew is installed, install wine.

brew install wine

when i tried installing wine, brew asked me to install a dependency and nicely told me to do the following

wine: XQuartz is required to install this formula.
You can install with Homebrew Cask:

  brew install Caskroom/cask/xquartz

so i just did that, once this was completed i could complete installing wine.

Now head over to and install the latest sqlyog, at the time of writing this blog the version was 12.0.9 (SQLyog Community Edition - 12.09 (32-Bit))

Download the installer file, this will be in your Downloads folder. Use terminal and navigate to Downloads folder and install using the following command.

wine SQLyog-12.0.9-0.x86Community.exe

This installed sqlyog on my mac.
