Liquibase vs pgweb: What are the differences?

What is Liquibase? Source control for your database. Developers store database changes in text-based files on their local development machines and apply them to their local databases. Changelog files can be be arbitrarily nested for better management.

What is pgweb? 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.

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

Some of the features offered by Liquibase are:

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

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

  • Connect to local or remote server
  • Browse tables and table rows
  • Get table details: structure, size, indices, row count

Liquibase and pgweb are both open source tools. It seems that pgweb with 5.94K GitHub stars and 419 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Liquibase with 1.78K GitHub stars and 1.09K GitHub forks.

What is Liquibase?

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.

        Flyway vs Liquibase #Migration #Backwards-compatible

        We were looking for a tool to help us integrating the migration scripts as part of our Deployment. At first sight both tools look very alike, are well integrated with Spring, have a fairly frequent development activity and short release cycles.

        Liquibase puts a lot of emphasis on independence with the DB, allowing you to create the scripts on formats like JSON and YML, abstracting away from SQL, which it's also supported. Since we only work with one DB type across services we wouldn't take much advantage of this feature.

        Flyway on the other hand has the advantage on being actively working on the integration with PostgreSQL 11, for it's upcoming version 6. Provides a more extensive set of properties that allow us to define what's allowed on what's not on each different environment.

        Instead of looking for a tool that will allow us to rollback our DB changes automatically, we decided to implement backwards-compatible DB changes, for example adding a new column instead of renaming an existing one, postponing the deletion of the deprecated column until the release has been successfully installed.
