pgcli vs PostGIS: What are the differences?

What is pgcli? Postgres CLI with autocompletion and syntax highlighting. This is a postgres client that does 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.

pgcli and PostGIS can be categorized as "Database" tools.

Some of the features offered by pgcli 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

pgcli and PostGIS are both open source tools. pgcli with 8.01K GitHub stars and 365 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular 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.
