New Release of Tuples - Native PostgreSQL Client for the Mac

October 30, 2010 in Software (E)

[] London, United Kingdom - Lost Bytes today is pleased to announce a new version of Tuples, the only PostgreSQL native client for the Mac. The new release includes previously requested changes to the user interface along with bug fixes such as adding space to the Connection List, allowing each connection to take up as much space as necessary. The Editor received a new component, the information box that sits beneath the database structure and displays information about the currently selected table or column.

Tuples is a PostgreSQL client designed exclusively for the Mac. It is developed using Cocoa and Objective-c as opposed to non-native clients. Its user interface uses well known and expected Mac metaphors and icons, significantly reducing the learning curve for new users. It is composed of two sections - the Connection List and the Editor.

The Connection List allows the user to manage database connections and lists previously configured connections. It allows for the creation and edition of connections and double clicking on an existing connection will open an Editor window to the server defined by that connection.

The Editor is where the user will spend most of the time working. Its composed of several sections:
* A tree that defines the database structure
* An information box where table and column information are displayed
* An editor that supports all features you'd expect from a SQL editor, such as syntax highlight
* A feedback pane to display query results, errors and query history
* A list of open buffers

The combination of the Connection List and open buffers gives the user an unprecedented amount of flexibility allowing for the opening of as many Editor windows as necessary and within these the creation of as many editor buffers as necessary. Lost Bytes is made up of Mac enthusiasts who believe that native clients, with their natural fit and performance, are the best way to interact with your computer.
