So we started out with a service called Adminium, it was really useful. But when we hit the table limit, we realized we were paying for something we could easily get for free. My friend Cyrus suggested RailsAdmin, so we made the switch. I like RailsAdmin because almost everything works without any configuration. It’s basically a UI for your PG db. We use it to debug issues and update content.
