Liquibase vs pgDash: What are the differences?

Developers describe Liquibase as "Source control for your database". Liquibase is a leading open-source tool for database schema change management. Liquibase helps teams track, version, and deploy database schema and logic changes so they can automate their database code process with their app code process. On the other hand, pgDash is detailed as "In-Depth PostgreSQL Monitoring". It is a modern, comprehensive monitoring solution designed specifically for PostgreSQL deployments. It shows you information and metrics about every aspect of your PostgreSQL database server, collected using the open-source tool pgmetrics.

Liquibase and pgDash can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.

Some of the features offered by Liquibase are:

  • Supports code branching and merging
  • Supports multiple developers
  • Supports multiple database types

On the other hand, pgDash provides the following key features:
