Postico is a modern database app for your Mac.

Postico is the perfect tool for data entry, analytics, and application development.

- connect to
- connect to PostgreSQL version 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 servers
- connect to cloud services like Heroku Postgres, Amazon Redshift, Amazon RDS
- connect to other RDBMs that use the PostgreSQL protocol, like CockroachDB or Greenplum

Postico is the perfect app for managing your data. It has great tools for data entry. Filter rows that contain a search term, or set up advanced filters with multiple conditions. Quickly view rows from related tables, and save time by editing multiple rows at once.

For analytics workloads, Postico has a powerful query editor with syntax highlighting and many advanced text editing features. Execute multiple queries at once, or execute them one at a time and export results quickly.

For application developers, Postico offers a full featured table designer. Add, rename and remove columns, set default values, and add column constraints (NOT NULL, UNIQUE, CHECK constraints, foreign keys etc.). Document your database by adding comments to every table, view, column, and constraint.

But the best part of Postico is how well it works. Postico is made on a Mac for a Mac. It works great with all your other Mac apps. Use all the usual keyboard shortcuts. Postico gets the basic things like copy/paste just right, and also supports more advanced features like services for text editing.

What’s New

Version 1.5.22

- More detailed error message when connecting to SSH server fails
- Use a find bar instead of a find panel in the SQL Query, since the find panel occasionally crashed the app.
- Fixed a potential bug where Postico would have unnecessary high CPU usage after an SSH tunnel was closed.
- Fixed a problem where some SSH private keys could not be read (and Postico asked for a passphrase even though the correct one was already entered)
- Updated bundled libraries: libssh2 0809c4b, libpq 14.7, and OpenSSL 1.1.1t
- Fixed size of some buttons

POSTICO is Amazing!

I was using PGAdmin on my Mac and dealing with constant usability issues.

With PGAdmin I would have windows randomly resizing on me while trying to administer my local dev environment.

I switched to Postico and everything works great! The software’s UI is not only stable but much more responsive than PGAdmin ever was. I have been a happy user for quite some time but just got around to reviewing it. I wish there was a free version for developers to give it a try with a paid upgrade inside of the app for the full release. That would give me the ability to promote it more to others.

work completed in 6 months, vs 36 man years

I used postgres via homebrew and postico to automate a linux to windows server migration. A nearly identical project was 24 man years into an estimated 36 man year project using manual data corrilation.

My project was in 2016. II am sure that Postico has only gotten better. As I was using it for the project, there were several updates that improved it for my project.

Being able so sort my data on various columns in the result window without re-running the queries greatly sped up my work. My record barely fit on 3 monitors side by side. The postico features made my project viable, so I only needed to pull the results into excel when sending reports to management.

Finding intersections of keywords in arrays (records can contain arrays), a postgres feature, was instrumental in my solution.

The Nest

This is one of the best DB GUIs I've used. I'm comfortable with raw SQL, but I like a lightweight GUI for navigating the data and making quick changes.

This tool makes it seemless and natural to view/edit your data as well as jump into SQL mode to run raw queries.
