The new GUI Interface for PostgreSQL - pgAdmin4


The eagerly awaited new version of pgAdmin 4 is finally here with features that are more flexible and reliable than its predecessor (pgAdmin 3).

pgAdmin is the leading graphical Open Source management, development and administration tool for PostgreSQL object relational database management system.

For a very long time pgAdmin has been on version 3 (pgAdminlll). However, just of recent (in October, 2016) it was upgraded to version 4 (pgAdmin4).

This new application (pgAdmin4) is designed for operation on both the desktop and a webserver. It is written in Python using the Flask framework for the backend, and Javascript/jQuery/Backbone for the frontend.

The core functionality of pgAdmin4 remains similar to pgAdmin3, but there are a number of changes made. Read more on Dave's blog.

To learn step-by-step how to install pgAdmin4 and also install PostGIS on it, check this link here.

Some screen screenshots of what am doing with it at the moment.

Enjoy the new interface of pgAdmin4!

Thanks for reading
