We’re committed to supporting a community edition of Beekeeper Studio -- tech accessibility is really important to us, and not everyone can afford to pay for a database manager. Everyone deserves access to good software.

Buying a copy of Beekeeper Studio is the best way to support the continued development of the community edition. Thank you! 🙏
