MySQL Compatibility with MacOS Sierra

Does anybody know of any compatibility issues or quirks with MySQL Community Server/Workbench on macOS Sierra? I recently did an installation on a Mac that had never held MySQL before and it doesn't seem to be working correctly. (Now maybe I just set it up wrong, but the since the installer offers no advanced options that doesn't seem to be the case.)

I can create schemas and tables, but when I go to actually query the table nothing happens. The activity indicator spins endlessly. I took a look at Activity Monitor and it doesn't show

actually doing anything—the whole setup just appears to be deadlocked. Any ideas?

Here's what I'm trying to use:

  • MySQL Community Server 5.7.15

  • MySQL Workbench 6.3.7

  • macOS Sierra 10.12 (16A323)

I had this same issue. I found out that the first instance you open just continues to spin when trying to run simple select statements with what seems to be no reason. You cannot even close the tab once it is open without closing all of MySQL Workbench. However, if you open up the same instance again it seems to work fine.
