Thread: postgreSQL GUI?

  1. #1

    Default postgreSQL GUI?

    Recent MS convert, thank you openSUSE and Mono.

    So short-term needing a replacement for the various tools MS traps you into to make it easy to work with SQL Server.

    I'm going to be using postgreSQL, and I'm wondering what's a good strategy as far as a GUI front-end. Any thoughts that meet the following requirements are welcome.

    1. No building from source. Don't have the time.
    2. Keeps package dependencies to a minimum.
    3. Won't require me to use KDE. My dev machine is too old to use KDE productively.

    I use DB Visualizer for all of my DB stuff. It's a GUI and lets you enter
    SQL as well. Java-based so it works on multiple platforms, has a free
    version (and a for-cost version for some features I never seem to need),
    connects to EVERYTHING I've ever needed (and a ton of things I don't need)
    via JDBC, etc. Give it a shot.

    PostgreSQL also has pgadmin which is GUI-ish and phpPgAdmin which is
    web-based like phpMyAdmin and lets you do a lot of things that way.

    As a fairly-new user of PostgreSQL I've been very impressed with it on
    multiple fronts. I came from a MySQL/Oracle (light... I'm no DBA)
    background so I'm comfortable with the command line but the GUI tools are
    still there as you get used to the faster ways of administration.

    Good luck.
