Mysql prompt tip

November 25, 2019

You can change the mysql prompt client so you know where you are.
Very usefull when you manage a lot of mysql databases and you forget which one :-)

For example, if I’m working on the FooBar projet, I can use this prompt :

mysql --prompt="@FooBar> "

Then I’ll have something like that :

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the current input statement.

@FooBar> show databases;

Neat ! Never lost in databases anymore :-D
