16.8. Extending Workbench

MySQL Workbench provides an extension and scripting system that allows the developer to extend MySQL Workbench according to requirements. While the core of MySQL Workbench is developed using C++, it is possible to harness this core functionality using both the Lua and Python scripting languages. MySQL Workbench also provides access to a cross-platform GUI library, mforms, which enables the creation of extensions that feature a graphical user interface.

The extension capabilities enable the following:

  • Automate common tasks

  • Extend the Workbench user-interface

  • Create plugins (code which can be invoked from the Workbench menu system)

  • Manipulate schemata

  • Create custom Workbench features
