Recently, I had the opportunity to explore the Databricks SQL extension for VSCode, and I was thoroughly impressed.
In December 2022, Databricks launched the
Databricks Driver for SQLToolsextension, and although it is still in preview, the features are already good and useful.
For data analysts, report developers and data engineers, having the ability to execute SQL queries against Databricks workspace objects is crucial for streamlining workflows and making data analysis activities much more efficient and quicker. The Databricks SQL extension for VSCode provides just that, with a simple and intuitive interface, this extension makes it easy to connect to Databricks workspace and run SQL queries directly from VSCode.
