pgcli vs RailsAdmin: What are the differences?

Developers describe pgcli as "Postgres CLI with autocompletion and syntax highlighting". This is a postgres client that does auto-completion and syntax highlighting. On the other hand, RailsAdmin is detailed as "A Rails engine that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing your data". RailsAdmin is a Rails engine that provides an easy-to-use interface for managing your data.

pgcli and RailsAdmin can be primarily classified 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, RailsAdmin provides the following key features:

  • CRUD any data with ease
  • Custom actions
  • Automatic form validation

pgcli and RailsAdmin are both open source tools. It seems that pgcli with 8.01K GitHub stars and 365 forks on GitHub has more adoption than RailsAdmin with 7.09K GitHub stars and 2.08K GitHub forks.

        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.
