The pgAdmin 4 ClientΒΆ

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
  • helpful hints
  • 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 Browser tree control in the left pane, and a tabbed browser in the right pane.
