Screencast: pgcli basics

I created a screencast to showcase some of the basic features of pgcli.

pgcli is a client for postgres that can do autocompletion and syntax highlighting.

This video covers:

  • Installation
  • Launching pgcli
  • Switching databases
  • Basic auto-completion for SELECT, CREATE, INSERT and JOIN statements.
  • Expanded output
  • Multi-line mode


If there is enough interest, I'll produce a few more screencasts of other features available in pgcli. Please reach me via twitter or email to provide feedback.

I'm also working on a new project called mysql-cli. I've launched a kickstarter campaign for that project and I'd like your support. Please forward the project to your friends and coworkers.
