TinyShell is ideal for anyone who wants command line access to their server, but is limited by HTTP access. Furthermore TinyShell comes with a native MySQL command line client, that some say is even better than MySQL’s own command line interface. TinyShell works in all modern browsers, including IE 7+, FF 3+, Chrome, Safari and it even works on iPhone and iPad. It is completely module based and supports multi line commands, tabbing and much more. Browse the plugins section for more details on the default behavior and functionality.

Visit the TinyShell project page at SourceForge to download the latest version.

Following video demonstrates the Oracle plugin, that is a copy of the MySQL plugin.
