How to easily test SQL Codes online and share them with others ?

I am looking for some online service like - SQL Fiddle - but with better features. SQL Fiddle limits the database size to a small sample and does not have any proper user features to manage the fiddles systematically "like having a method of proper tags or comments about each fiddle etc."

It should allow me to quickly create a demo database online and then experiment with various queries on it. I did some searching online and found that there are quite a lot of such services available, like -

But it is not possible for me to manually tryout all of them. So I was looking for some tried and tested solution, which is already being used by a lot of users here.

Please suggest the best options in this regards, from your own experience.

Thanks a lot

If you want to experiment with queries just for yourself, you can install
- MySQL on your Windows/Mac/Linux PC
- SQL Server Express Edition on your Windows PC

Thanks for your comment Mark.
I would like to clarify that I am not looking for doing it on my PC. I am looking for some online method for doing such testing and I should be able to share that test /demo database and query with others easily. Please have a look at SQL Fiddle to understand the main concept behind it.

I would enjoy finding a good alternative to SQLfiddle but have not found one yet, and I have looked more than once.  SQLfiddle is deliberately limited in size, and that can be frustrating, but a free service cannot afford to give you massive dbms size.

The vast majority of those "playpen" environments like JSfiddle, CodePen etc  do not give access to a dbms at all, and if they do they probably allow just one dbms type (such as MySQL) and also in a very limited way.

Here is an example (SQLite)
note that one (of many) limitations here seems to be that you don't get a dedicated URL (which you do get at SQLfiddle)

There is also an Oracle console at the same site, but don't ask me how it is useful, as it does not seem to do much.

Thanks for your reply Paul. I agree completely. SQLfiddle is definitely good, but the size limit is causing lot of trouble for me. That's why I was thinking if I could find a better alternative with better features.

Hopefully, someone might be knowing about such an alternative, if that exists !

Thanks and regards

I don't think that something better than SQLFiddle exists.
I usually creates a VM and install MSSQL Developer edition and use AdventureWorks as demo database since it has plenty of tables with a good number of records. I know, is not online but it's somehow quick to set lab environments like this.

Old questions rarely attract new answers either.

I have been involved in this for some time now, and can lay claim to having "introduced" use of sqlfiddle into EE, and as I stated before I have looked for alternatives. I just do not believe that right now a better alternative exists.
