It will look familiar to anyone who has used a Mac before. Just connect to a database and begin working with tables and views. Start with the basics and learn about advanced features of PostgreSQL as you go along.
Postico for macOS is an intuitive app for looking at data. Filter rows, sort them, rearrange columns. You can examine long text or images conveniently in the sidebar. Even related rows from referenced tables are shown.
Edit rows directly, or use the sidebar — a great choice for long text. You can even change multiple rows at once. Batch saving (with SQL preview) lets you commit changes to multiple rows in a single transaction.
Add and remove columns, rename them, change types. Modify tables and views without having to remember the ALTER TABLE syntax. The unified structure editor displays everything you need to know about a table. Comments and constraints are shown right next to the columns.
When you need hard questions answered, PostgreSQL offers many advanced tools for data analysis: Common table expressions, recursive queries, filter aggregates, window functions. To access these tools, Postico sports a powerful query view with support for multiple result sets. The editor has all the standard features you expect, like syntax highlighting and automatic indentation.
Features and Highlights
Native Cocoa controls ensure consistency. Keyboard shortcuts follow platform conventions. Commands like undo/redo or copy/paste work just as you'd expect. And of course, the tool plays nice with other apps and services you use every day.
The app was designed from the ground up with Apple's modern design language in mind. Its high resolution artwork looks great on Retina displays.
Secure out of the box
It uses industry standard encryption: both SSL and SSH can be used for secure connections. Server certificates are always validated. Passwords are stored safely in the system keychain. A warning is shown if the server requests a plain text connection.
Dependable Customer Support
When you have a question, you can contact the developers directly — "We personally answer all customer emails. You don't have to deal with outsourced support agents, and you'll never get a canned response".
A Companion to Postgres.app
Postgres.app is the fastest way to run a PostgreSQL server locally. Since Postico is made by the maintainer of Postgres.app, the two apps co-operate perfectly.
Optimized for small displays
A slim toolbar conserves vertical screen estate. The sidebars can be hidden to show more of your data. And if you don't want to waste a single pixel, switch to full screen mode.
Note: Only 5 connection favorites, only a single window per connection and the table filters are disabled. Requires 64-bit processor.
