Connect Retool to your MySQL database and build internal applications like admin panels and dashboards using a drag-and-drop GUI.
Retool comes with a native integration to connect directly to your MySQL database (via a connection string or regular credentials) and lets you run raw SQL (or issue commands via a GUI) to manage the data in your MySQL tables. For example, you can render users from MySQL into a Table component and add a button that, when clicked, runs an SQL query and marks that user as approved.
Retool gives you a drag-and-drop interface to build internal apps on top of MySQL and perform the actions you need without doing anything destructive. No need to worry about errant DROP DATABASE commands getting you paged late at night.
Access our library of 50+ pre-built UI components packed with functionality like tables, buttons, and text inputs. Skip the headache of searching for the right front-end templates and build your app in minutes.

Whether you're building a basic front-end or a detailed inventory management app, internal tools have the same building blocks: tables, text boxes, drop-downs, etc. Retool gives you a simple way to connect these building blocks with MySQL so you can build and ship internal tools in hours, not days or weeks.
