pgAdmin is the most popular and feature rich Open Source administration and development platform for PostgreSQL, the most advanced Open Source database in the world.

If you are reading this then you are probably using pgAdmin as a tool to help in your day to day database management activities with PostgreSQL. But, did you know there are a variety of ways you can maximise your productivity by customising the pgAdmin workspace using the Preferences dialog’s various options? This article will show you some of the options for customising the workspace using the Browser node of the Preferences tree control.

pgAdmin can be deployed as a web application by configuring the app to run in server mode. One can check out server deployment on how to run pgAdmin in server mode. In this blog, we will discuss how to manage the pgAdmin users when running in server mode.

Almost exactly three years ago I wrote a blog on my personal page entitled Testing pgAdmin which went into great detail discussing how we test pgAdmin prior to releases. Back then, all of the automated testing was performed using Jenkins, with a number of jobs that ran various test suites whenever new code was checked in. All of this infrastructure ran in a virtual private cloud on AWS consisting of a large number of virtual machines and other resources, hosted for the project by EDB. I recently undertook a project to move the testing infrastructure to our Github project, using Github Actions.
