Hiya John! This is the answer for your first question:

  • You should defo do that actually! You should also seed your database with user related info like their emails , contacts , address, payment info, password and likewise stuff. Infact, with real world projects, you might end up integrating like multiple databases in your application.

Now regarding your second question:

  • You dont need a text editor for SQL. I'd highly recommend installing community version of MySQL on your local machine. And as soon as you done installing MySQL on your local machine, you can interact with it using MySQL console. Thats all you need to interact with your database.

I hope it helped. (:

Thank you, Ari Misha.
