pgAdmin 4 supports all PostgreSQL features, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. It is designed to query an active database (in real-time), allowing you to stay current with modifications and implementations.
Features of pgAdmin 4 include:
auto-detection and support for objects discovered at run-time
a live SQL Query Tool with direct data editing
support for administrative queries
a syntax-highlighting SQL editor
redesigned graphical interfaces
powerful management dialogs and tools for common tasks
responsive, context-sensitive behavior
supportive error messages
online help and information about using pgAdmin dialogs and tools.
When pgAdmin opens, the interface features a menu bar and a window divided into two panes: the Object Explorer tree control in the left pane, and a tabbed browser in the right pane.
