DataGrip Adds Cassandra Support

Support for Cassandra has been added to DataGrip, JetBrain's IDE for databases and SQL. The 2018.3 release also improves PostgreSQL support, and the ability to generate SQL for selected objects.

DataGrip is a combination of an intelligent SQL editor and collection of database tools packed together and running on top of the IntelliJ platform.


The addition of NoSQL Cassandra support follows the inclusion of Clickhouse support in the previous release. You can now write queries, observe data, and generate scripts for Cassandra from within DataGrip. Support has also been added for extensions and stored procedures in PostgreSQL.

Another improvement to data handling is that if you use DataGrip's SQL Generator to get the DDL from objects, you can also choose to generate the SQL files for those objects. It's a minor change, but a nice one, and once generated they can be edited within DataGrip.

Refactoring support is another area to have received an improvement that might make a real difference, with the addition of support for Introduce alias.  Refactoring improves code to be written better, and DataGrip will now automatically add aliases when completing table names, so the code is more readable and understandable.

Other improvements to code completion are better handling of Group By clauses so that DataGrip shows you a list of non-aggregated fields; and the presentation of a list of all columns in completion after the Select, Merge and Insert Into keywords.

Completion now works well for named parameters of stored procedures, and when you use an ambiguous name, DataGrip now shows you the context.

Join handling has also been improved, with a new setting called Invert order of operands in auto-generated ON clause. If it’s set to off, the From table will be the first in the Join conditions.

The new version can be downloaded from the JetBrains website.
