pgAdmin III is THE Open Source management tool for your PostgreSQL databases. Features full Unicode support, fast, multithreaded query and data editting tools and support for all PostgreSQL object types.
pgAdmin III is bundled with the Windows installer, and you can use that such a client to administer a remote server on another OS. Note that binary packages for platforms like RPM don't show up in every point release, you currently have to go back to v1.8.0 to get the last full set of packages.
Free Administration Centre for the PostgreSQL database. Includes a graphical administration interface, an SQL query tool, a procedural code editor and much more. pgAdmin III is designed to answer the needs of most users, from writing simple SQL queries to developing complex databases. The graphical interface supports all PostgreSQL features and makes administration easy. Available in more than 30 languages and for several operating systems.
browser-based, requires webserver

JetBrains IDEs - DataGrip, IntelliJ IDEA, PHPStorm, PyCharm, RubyMine, etc ...
Windows, Mac OS X, Linux
JetBrains has a dedicated SQL IDE — DataGrip which can connect to PostgreSQL as well. It provides code completion, multicursors, local query history, navigation, refactorings and language injection support. https://www.jetbrains.com/datagrip/
Other JetBrains Products, for example PHPStorm, have built-in database plugin, and it has the same functionality as DataGrip.
After you configured the data sources of your project, you can easily create tables, foreign keys, indexes much easier than usually, because the IDE is very smart; for example by foreign keys it automatically sets the name of the key, and the related columns. For me it is so far the best experience by creating a basic database schema. Even with editable EER models was it slower... By the settings ofyour data source you can configure the SQL dialect of your database. After that if you want to add stored procedures or triggers, you will have code completion which is favorable too. So I think JetBrains products speed up your work if you exactly know what you want, and how can you make it.
For any JetBrains IDE there is a free license for open source projects. For enterprise usage there is a 30 days trial, after that you can buy personal or commercial license which are very cheap compared to other products.
For PyCharm (even the Community Edition) you can install the free JetBrains plugin Database Navigator (Settings -> IDE Settings -> Plugins). It appears to deliver the same functionality described above for PHPStorm. You will get a new menu DB Navigator, left to the Help menu.

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

RISE - Model Driven Development using ERD / UML
RISE is a free software suite for model driven information system development. Use a single source RISE model to generate your entire information solution including database, web services and documentation. Boost development throughput and improve quality and maintainability!
The RISE user experience is based on a project concept, similar to that of most integrated development environments. The user works with resources and drawings that are part of a single development project.
RISE supports a fully graphical approach to information modeling and system engineering, using ERD (Entity Relationship Diagram) as well as UML (Unified Modeling Language). This includes drag-and-drop of entities, their attributes and relations, as well as of views and entire web services.
RISE supports graphic editing of complex objects such as views and orchestrated methods. RISE automatically safeguards the combination process, thus, assuring a technically correct result.
RISE provides several ways to generate code from the model; directly to file, via the RISE Server or as an Internet service. RISE provides code generators for the database layer (SQL/DDL) as well as for the server side application layer (web services and persistent classes). All database scripts are incremental allowing you to install and maintain any number of databases from a single model.
Feature list http://www.risetobloome.com/Page_1_S.aspx?ITEM=1355
RISE PostgreSQL code generator
The RISE PostgreSQL code generator generates native PL/pgSQL scripts. Model your information in the free RISE Editor and generate your database script.

RISE PHP for PostgreSQL code generator
The RISE PHP for PostgreSQL code generator renders PHP source code for database access. Model your information and programming interfaces in the free RISE Editor and generate your code. The generated code implements the classes and methods corresponding to the information interfaces specified in the RISE model.
