Tip of the Month
Users of mysqlsh can easily change the output of their data for the duration of their session from table, tabbed, vertical, or JSON (in pretty, raw, or array option). And these changes can be made the default by storing the settings in the configuration file (which is the ~/.mysqlsh directory on Linux and macOS, or the %AppData%\MySQL\mysqlsh folder on Windows).
