PgAccess: A Graphical Client

PgAccess is a graphical administration application for PostgreSQL. It is designed to be similar in function to PC database software, such as Microsoft Access.

The interface allows you to view and modify various aspects of your PostgreSQL database using graphical representations of database elements, such as tables, queries, and views (among others). It can be a convenient escape from the sometimes tedious task of using the psql command line interface.

PgAccess was written in the Tcl/Tk scripting language; this increases its level of portability, as it can be installed and run on any system that supports the Tcl/Tk scripting language (including Linux/UNIX, Windows, and MacOS). As PgAccess is a client side application, PostgreSQL is not required to be on the machine running PgAccess.
