This was a long year of challenges, struggles, and concerns. Inevitably, the happenings during 2020 affected the development of pgModeler 0.9.3 but, fortunately, I've managed to deliver the stable release still in 2020 as I have promised months ago. This last release, as usual, brings only fixes for what was developed during the alpha and beta stages with minor new features. The whole set of changes of this release (considering the alpha and beta stages) has 242 entries being 61 new features, 102 changes/improvements, and 79 bug fixes. Finally, with this launching, we finished another development cycle and now I'm starting to plan the next move for this project. Details in the full post.
Create and edit database models easily with a simple and intuitive interface. The forms indicate which fields must be filled to provide the correct generation of SQL code.
Get, modify, and redistribute the source code without any charge. This project has a public repository that allows forks and full access to the source code. Developers can create their own versions from the existing code.
Built on top of the Qt framework, pgModeler can be compiled on Windows, Linux and macOS. The build scripts are easily configurable to resolve specific dependencies on each operating system.
Design once and export to multiple versions. With its dynamic code generation, pgModeler can export the designed models to different versions of PostgreSQL (currently from 9.x to 13.x).
Missing some functionality? Use the plug-in development interface and create your own extension for pgModeler without change a single line of the core code. See the official plug-ins repository for more details.
