Experience the power
of database version control.

Supercharge your workflow by connecting SQL Server to source control. Roll back changes, view history, and more without ever leaving SQL Server Management Studio.

Hey SQL Shaders!

You've already taken a step towards a sleeker and more comfortable SSMS experience with SQL Shades. Now it's time to complete your journey by empowering your workflow with version control.

Introducing VersionSQL, a robust version control add-in hand-crafted specifically for SQL Server Management Studio. While SQL Shades enhances your visual experience, VersionSQL streamlines your database code management and teamwork.

VersionSQL is 2 minutes to learn, extremely fast to use, and solves the everlasting problem of source controlling the SQL database structure.


✅ Fits into your workflow

One with SQL Server Management Studio

VersionSQL works where you work, nestled inside the Object Explorer. No need to switch back and forth between separate applications.

Adapts to your database development style

Flexible configuration options fit with any database development model, from shared to distributed and beyond.

Filters out the noise

Powerful gitignore-style object filtering blacklists the parts of your database that you don't care about and whitelists the parts you do.

✅ Connects to your version control system

Fluent in Git and Subversion

Connects natively to Git and Subversion repositories hosted on-premises or in the cloud (e.g. Azure DevOps, GitHub).

Knows command line, too

Competently leverages the command line to check in SQL with any kind of source control that can do it (e.g. Mercurial, TFS).

Friend of folders

Filesystem your jam? VersionSQL will cheerily script out SQL objects as flat files to your chosen working directory.

✅ Gives you super powers

Historical clairvoyance

Pinpoint what objects changed, who changed them, when, how, and why.

Undo button for schema changes

Drop away! You have a safety net. Roll back changes to any point in history.

Deployment script generator

Deploy schema changes the easy way: Let the machines do the heavy lifting.

✅ Stays out of your way

Light as a feather

No constant background scanning to weigh you down. Keep SQL Server Management Studio snappy and your server unburdened.

High-perf scripting

Have a big database? VersionSQL's finely-tuned scripting engine will flip through it in a jiffy so you can get back to what matters.

Gently keeps you on track

Been a while since you checked in your changes? Expect a subtle reminder. Feel free to hit "snooze".

✅ Handcrafted with love

Does one thing well

VersionSQL is laser-focused on SQL Server version control. You’re getting a specialized tool for your exact needs — not a bulky product with features you won’t use.

Getting better all the time

Rather than coasting on brand reputation and a restrictive subscription model, VersionSQL grows and improves by leaps and bounds with every release.

The friendliest licensing

You have the freedom to keep running the software you've purchased without a subscription, and get discounts for supporting continued development. From one human to another: Thank you!

Commit right from SSMS and straight into GitHub, fantastic! Clients love seeing the historical version comparisons. Big relief, and top notch support too, all at a great price.
