dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

This is completely dependent on job function. If you need to just view/edit data, then this tool is hands down the most intuitive and easy to use for that purpose. Our support team will greatly benefit from the ease of use for sorting, filtering, and viewing data. However, for a development role it would be better to select a different tool unless, of course, that developer was trying to find data issues or see what the data looks like after operations have run.

Rider

Rider can pretty much be a drop-in replacement for Visual Studio in most scenarios. The development experience is wonderful, and I have rarely had problems with building, running tests, and debugging applications. You might need to keep around Visual Studio to publish or build installers, but the Rider team is constantly adding feature parity and new features, so the future looks even stronger.

Pros

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • Intellisense is rock solid.
  • Sorting, filtering, and grouping are super easy by just using the grid columns. No having to write queries!
  • UI is super intuitive.
  • There is a master-child detail designer where you drop tables into the designer, link up their relationships (whether there are foreign keys or not), and then you can view the linked data.

Rider

  • Runs on multiple platforms including Windows 10, Linux distros and macOS.
  • Very intuitive UI especially for developers with Java background.
  • It includes all the coolest ReSharper features.

Cons

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • No table/database designers (yet). They have said it's coming.
  • No way to create scripts to create the database/tables that other tools have. This makes it difficult for developers to use to generate DDL scripts.
  • Data export does an individual insert per row of data, which is a little inefficient. Other tools will do a single insert for a configurable amount of rows per insert statement.

Rider

  • If you are on Linux, it still uses Mono for a few things, such as the interactive C# window. This can be a slight issue if you are in Dotnet Core. While you can get the Dotnet script to work, there is a bug currently in the Dotnet script that doesn't allow the interactive window to work. However, you can run the Dotnet script in a terminal and get the same functionality, just not as easily.
  • Their built-in performance tools do not work on Linux.

Customer support provided by JetBrains is quite fast and effective. The issues we have encountered were solved within days, which we find reasonable and a very adequate time frame. Bug fixes are added to releases depending on their severity which makes perfect sense. However, we have not encountered any issue which we would consider to be a major problem.

Alternatives Considered

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

While DBeaver ended up being the goto for our development team, everyone else is going to be using dbForge Studio. The UI was hands down much easier to get used to, and the sorting/filtering options make it super easy for anyone to view the data the way they needed it. You don't need SQL query knowledge to use this product. DBeaver DOES have a master detail type data view buried into some right click menus, however, you can't just link up a bunch of tables and see/scroll through master records and have all the child tables update. It's useful, but not as useful as dbForge Studio.Valentina was just way too hard for people to navigate and use on a daily basis.

Rider

Rider is hands down smoother and way less glitchy than Visual Studio Enterprise. There are way more refactoring capabilities and spell check so that your code is readable, maintainable, and easy to follow. Since Rider is cross-platform, our developers are no longer constrained to only using Windows. We can now get a familiar development environment across Mac, Windows, or Linux!

Return on Investment

dbForge Studio for PostgreSQL

  • Saved a TON of time when looking at massive amounts of parent/child data by allowing us to just use the master-detail browser.
  • Very little training time needed for employees that are already used to using SQL Management Studio. This is a proper Windows UI application.
  • Very cost effective to purchase the standard edition for every employee that needs it, but the free edition does most of what they need too!

Rider

  • Development experience led to faster development times due to better performance, well worth the licence cost.
