Postgresql database browser.

Overview

BiggerSQL is a Cocoa Postgresql Data Base Browser. BiggerSQL features flexible input, simplified table browsing, support for PL/pgSQL, online help, saving result sets in a variety of formats and much more. Source is included.

What's new in BiggerSQL

Version 1.3.8:
  • Web browser technology has been embedded in BiggerSQL. The browser can be displayed by choosing "Show Web Browser" from the File menu.
  • There are two new items in the contextual popup menu that will also invoke the Web browser. "View Bytea Field as HTML" and "View Text Field as HTML". Invoking either of these menu items when the cursor is over the appropriate field will bring the browser forward and attempt to display the contents of the field in the browser.
  • I have been using this feature to view html based email stored in one of my postgresql databases.
  • I have also used the embedded browser to interact with a database via cgi's without having to start a full blown browser.
  • There is also another new item in the contextual menu "Save Bytea Field..." . Choosing this item will allow the user to extract a bytea field into a user named file.
  • One caveat: This version was built against Version 8.0.0 Beta 3 of the Postgresql system. I did not have to make any changes in the source to accommodate this change. I do not think this should cause a problem...One early tester has found no problems on a version 7.4 database.

Nice work: very fast and seems stable. The buttons are a little unintuitive: "Info" shows all of the database tables in a useful sidebar, which can be clicked to show their contents. This button should be called "Tables" and live in the top of the app. The "run" button, although it is at the bottom of the screen, actually refers to the entry at the very top: it should be put there. Read the Apple HID guidelines, and this will be a great little utility.
