Looks quite nice.

Currently stuck on pgAdmin 1.22, as I won't touch the "modern" Electron version of it.

I've recently discovered DBeaver, and am quite happy with it. https://dbeaver.jkiss.org/

Likewise, was wondering whether someone would mention it here. I'm quite impressed and considering at some point paying for the premium features (mainly support of NoSQL databases).

Even for just PostgreSQL, Postico is fine on Mac but then on Linux the best I've found is DBeaver.

Thanks, I will have a look into it.

I wish pgAdmin 4 was built on Electron. It is that horrible.

It is awful. I hope one day it's as good as pgAdmin3, but I'm not hopeful. It's great to develop it in the same way as postgresql because that's how the developers are used to working, but it would really benefit from a more open development model using github or gitlab. I don't understand why they chose their tooling for pgAdmin4, but I'm sure it must be buried in the mailing lists somewhere...

Thankfully BigSQL are still updating pgadmin3 to work with postgresql 10: https://www.openscg.com/bigsql/pgadmin3/

I just cross-checked, yep I got it wrong, but it isn't much different than from Electron.


Electron what?

You are right, it is not Electron, I mixed it up because it is anyway the same idea.

> Written in Python using the Flask framework for the backend, and Javascript/jQuery/Backbone for the frontend, it can easily be deployed as a WSGI application for multiple users in practically any network environment. A small runtime application allows it to be run as a desktop application - this is a Qt executable that incorporates a Python interpreter and web browser along with the main application in a single package that can be installed on a developer laptop as with previous versions of pgAdmin.
