Thanks for stirring up the conversation, Robert.
Viewing the schema definitions in tabular form is nice and a similar experience to what you'd find in other database REPLs. I really like the simple access with :schema describe without having to fuss around with the mgmt object directly.
I know some folks in my company have a JSON-based schema tool, which sounds similar to what Marc has. It allows for a relatively painless creation (and exporting) a static schema rather than going directly through the ManagementSystem API. The benefit is that you can manipulate the JSON programmatically, plus it works through the Gremlin Server.
I'd think that Robert's Gremlin Console integration and JSON-based schema definition aren't necessarily only one tool can win. Both could co-exist since they have different objectives. For example, if the ManagementSystem returns a JSON representation, the Gremlin Console plugin does a transform from JSON to text tables.
