Active Admin vs pgweb: What are the differences?

Developers describe Active Admin as "The administration framework for Ruby on Rails applications". Active Admin is a Ruby on Rails framework for creating elegant backends for website administration. On the other hand, pgweb is detailed as "Web-based PostgreSQL database browser written in Go". This is a web-based browser for PostgreSQL database server. Its written in Go and works on Mac OSX, Linux and Windows machines. Main idea behind using Go for the backend is to utilize language's ability for cross-compile source code for multiple platforms. This project is an attempt to create a very simple and portable application to work with PostgreSQL databases.

Active Admin and pgweb belong to "Database Tools" category of the tech stack.

Some of the features offered by Active Admin are:
