Hey @swissspidy, Welcome to the Local Community Forums!
Thanks for reaching out about Local and Sequel Pro, and I’m sorry that this has interrupted your workflow!
I’ve moved this topic to the “Local Add-ons” category to help focus the conversation on possible ways that this functionality can be returned!
Removing Sequel pro is part of a larger effort of the Local team to streamline and simplify the third-party tooling that we encourage users to use. This allows us to deliver a leaner, more stable core Local experience that can be extended by developers through the use of Add-ons.
Sequel Pro is unique in that it was included a long time ago, before a Local add-on was even an option. As the latest stable version of Sequel Pro (v1.1.2) was released in April of 2016 and has become broken for many users, the Local team has had to field many support questions around users being confused about why Local encourages the use of broken software.
As you mention, the nightly build of Sequel Pro does work, and the maintainer of Sequel Pro has said that they are working on the project.
At the end of the day, if having a one-click connection to a Local site in Sequel Pro interests you, I encourage you to explore creating an add-on!
In particular, the TablePlus addon seems to function in a similar manner to what you are trying to do with Sequel Pro, so you might consider reviewing that add-on’s repo:
Hope that helps give some larger context into our decision to remove Sequel Pro from Local. If you have any questions, just let us know how we can help!
