Cross-platform client for PostgreSQL databases 
Web-based PostgreSQL database browser written in Go.
Release Linux Build Windows Build


Pgweb is a web-based database browser for PostgreSQL, written in Go and works on OSX, Linux and Windows machines. Main idea behind using Go for backend development is to utilize ability of the compiler to produce zero-dependency binaries for multiple platforms. Pgweb was created as an attempt to build very simple and portable application to work with local or remote PostgreSQL databases.


  • Cross-platform support OSX/Linux/Windows 32/64-bit
  • Simple installation (distributed as a single binary)
  • Zero dependencies
  • Works with PostgreSQL 9.1+
  • SSH Connections
  • Multiple database sessions
  • Simple database browser
  • Execute and analyze custom SQL queries
  • Table and query data export to CSV/JSON/XML
  • Query history
  • Server bookmarks

Heroku Deploy


Before running tests, make sure you have PostgreSQL server running on localhost:5432 interface. Also, you must have postgres user that could create new databases in your local environment. Pgweb server should not be running at the same time.
Execute test suite:
make test
If you're using Docker locally, you might also run pgweb test suite against all supported PostgreSQL version with a single command:
make test-all
