After setting up local PostgreSQL, I'm looking for a SQL GUI tool to help me manage relational databases, such as MySQL, PostgreSQL. The first tool I used is pgAdmin4, but when I launch it, it can not be opened and throw errors:

And then I tried to solve this problem but failed finally. Thus, I gave up to use it and turn to other tools.

Why TablePlus

Finally I decided to choose TablePlus as the GUI tool of managing database. The reasons are:

  1. It is cross-platform tool for Mac, Linux and Windows.
  2. It has elegant UI and uses easily.
  3. It supports multiple databases including MySQL and PostgreSQL.
