Mycli vs PostGIS: What are the differences?
What is Mycli? A CLI for MySQL with auto-completion and syntax highlighting. Mycli is a command line interface for MySQL, MariaDB, and Percona with auto-completion and syntax highlighting.
What is PostGIS? Open source spatial database. PostGIS is a spatial database extender for PostgreSQL object-relational database. It adds support for geographic objects allowing location queries to be run in SQL.
Mycli and PostGIS can be categorized as "Database" tools.
Some of the features offered by Mycli are:
- Auto-completion as you type for SQL keywords as well as tables and columns in the database.
- Syntax highlighting using Pygments.
- Smart-completion (enabled by default) will suggest context-sensitive completion.
On the other hand, PostGIS provides the following key features:
- Processing and analytic functions for both vector and raster data for splicing, dicing, morphing, reclassifying, and collecting/unioning with the power of SQL
- raster map algebra for fine-grained raster processing
- Spatial reprojection SQL callable functions for both vector and raster data
Mycli and PostGIS are both open source tools. It seems that Mycli with 7.75K GitHub stars and 475 forks on GitHub has more adoption than PostGIS with 645 GitHub stars and 246 GitHub forks.

PostGIS makes it easy (and fast) to do geographic queries, such as nearest-neighbor and bounding box queries.
