What's the difference between a PostgreSQL GUI, PostgreSQL viewer, PostgreSQL IDE, and a PostgreSQL admin panel?

A PostgreSQL GUI (Graphical User Interface), Postgres db viewer, PostgreSQL IDE (Integrated Development Environment), and Postgres admin panel are all PostgreSQL management tools designed to interact with and manage a PostgreSQL database. Although the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, there are subtle differences in their functionalities and purposes. A Postgres GUI refers to a graphical application that provides an interface to interact with a PostgreSQL database. It typically includes features like database browsing, table management, query execution, and data visualization. A Postgres viewer is a tool that focuses primarily on viewing the contents of a PostgreSQL database. It may offer some editing features, but its main functionality is read-only. A Postgres IDE, on the other hand, is an Integrated Development Environment specifically tailored for working with PostgreSQL databases. It provides advanced development capabilities and a robust environment for developers to manage database-related code. Finally, a postgre SQL admin panel offers features like user and role management, backup and restore functionality, performance monitoring, configuration management, and security settings. It is typically used by non-dev users when they need to manage a database. Forest Admin is first of all a PostgreSQL admin panel, but its flexibility makes it possible to be used as a Postgres db viewer or Postgres GUI tool (both Mac and Windows).

Why choose Forest Admin as a Postgres admin panel?

How to setup Postgres admin accounts

Forest Admin has the most advanced and granular access control system among all Postgres admin panel solutions. There are 4 default levels of administration permissions: Admin, Developer, Editor, and User. It is a security layer that decides on who can access the Project Settings, and edit the UI layout. User access can be customized with Roles that make it possible not only to restrict access to some data but also allow users to perform specific actions – or not.
