Pgcli is a command line interface for Postgres with auto-completion and syntax highlighting.
If you already know how to install python packages, then you can simply do:
$ pip install pgcli
If you're on macOS you can install it via Homebrew. Just be aware that this will install postgresql if you don't already have it.
$ brew tap-pin dbcli/tap $ brew install pgcli
If you're having trouble with the quick start, check the install page for detailed instructions.
$ pgcli --help Usage: pgcli [OPTIONS] [DBNAME] [USERNAME] Options: -h, --host TEXT Host address of the postgres database. -p, --port INTEGER Port number at which the postgres instance is listening. -U, --username TEXT Username to connect to the postgres database. -u, --user TEXT Username to connect to the postgres database. -W, --password Force password prompt. -w, --no-password Never prompt for password. --single-connection Do not use a separate connection for completions. -v, --version Version of pgcli. -d, --dbname TEXT database name to connect to. --pgclirc PATH Location of pgclirc file. -D, --dsn TEXT Use DSN configured into the [alias_dsn] section of pgclirc file. --list-dsn list of DSN configured into the [alias_dsn] section of pgclirc file. --row-limit INTEGER Set threshold for row limit prompt.

pgcli also supports many of the same environment variables as psql for login options (e.g. PGHOST, PGPORT, PGUSER, PGPASSWORD, PGDATABASE).
$ pgcli local_database $ pgcli postgres://amjith:email@example.com:5432/app_db $ pgcli -h localhost -p 5432 -U amjith app_db
