pgAdmin III は Windows インストーラに同梱されています。また、ローカルマシンのサーバだけではなく、遠隔マシンの別OS上のサーバも管理する事ができます。注意が必要なのは、バイナリのリリースが更新されていないプラットホームがあることです。最新版を領したい場合には、ソースコードからビルドすることも考慮に入れてください。
The original PostgreSQL GUI, with an MS Access-style database browser, written in Tcl/Tk. Allows browsing, adding and editing tables, views, functions, sequencese, databases, and users, as well as graphically-assisted queries. A form and report designer are also under development by the PGAccess team, who could use help from some more Tcl/Tk coders and doc writers. (JMB 11.2002)
PGAccess has not been actively maintained for some time.
phpMyAdmin と同様のウェブブラウザベースのツールで、PostgreSQL の多くのオブジェクトを閲覧や編集できます。また、任意の SQL クエリの実行機能も持ちます。メンテナンスは phpPgAdmin team によって行われています。(JMB 11.2002).
phpPgAdmin と、その実行に必要な Apache や PHP パッケージは、スタックビルダを使うと手軽にインストールできます。スタックビルダはワン・クリック・インストーラに含まれています。
Windows, Linux, Solaris
The postgresql SDBC Driver allows to use the postgresql database from OpenOffice.org without any wrapper layer such as odbc or jdbc. The current version 0.7.6 can be considerded as good beta quality ( with some known issues and missing features). The driver is aimed at the 1.1 OpenOffice.org and OpenOffice.org 2.x versions, it does not work with OOo1.0.x trees. The final aim is to have an easier to use, faster, more feature rich database driver than the jdbc-odbc solution. The current version should already allow this in most places.

The druid is a tools that allows users to create databases in a graphical way. The user can add tables, fields, folders to group tables and can modify most of the database options that follow the SQL-92 standard. In addition to sql options, the user can document each table and each field with HTML information. Once the database is created, the druid can generate:
- HTML documentation: for all tables, with browsing facilities
- PDF documentation: for all tables
- Java classes: (one class for each table) that contain tables' constants (such as fields size) plus java code added by the user
- A data dictionarythat contains all tables and fields present in the database
- SQL script which contains all table definitions that can be piped to the DBMS
