pgModeler - PostgreSQL Database Modeler - is an open source data modeling tool designed for PostgreSQL. No more DDL commands written by hand let pgModeler do the job for you! This software reunites the concepts of entity-relationship diagrams and the features that PostgreSQL implements as extensions of SQL standards.

Please, let me know how the pgModeler is working on your system! Help to improve this project, give your feedback about the software or report any bug at Issues page. Additionaly, follow the pgModeler profile on Facebook or Twitter and be up-to-date with new features, fixes and releases.

Donate to pgModeler

Much effort, coffee, chocolate, time and knowledge has been devoted to this project so that a usable and constantly improved product can be delivered to the community. If you liked pgModeler and think it deserves a contribution please donate any amount (via PayPal) on project's official site.

Developers and Reviewers wanted!

pgModeler grown bigger and reached a state that its lonely developer cannot handle all the modification and new feature requests as well to create a user's manual. So if you know C++ and Qt framework programming and wants to contribute with coding or an user's manual let me know! I'll be grateful for any help to the project!


For details about installation process from source code visit the Installation section on Wiki. If you don't want to compile pgModeler there are binaries available for purchase at official site.

Known Issues

  • pgModeler sometimes can crash during the export, import or validation process due to some threaded operations that, depending on size and arrange of the model, causes race conditions.
  • Due to particularities on executing bundles on MacOSX the file association does not work correctly on this system. So it's not possible to open a model file by clicking it on Finder.
  • To use pgmodeler-cli command on MacOSX you must call it by executing the following command inside the "" path: ./startapp pgmodeler-cli [PARAMS]
