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.

PyCharm

  • When Python is the main language of choice, an IDE like PyCharm is a great choice
  • Web development and server development (services) development is also very well supported
  • React programming needs some additional assistance as JSX is a new file format which mixes HTML as a JS string. That is amazingly integrated as well
  • However, this IDE has heavy memory requirements and needs a good machine

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.

PyCharm

  • Customizable interface: layout, color scheme, hot keys, etc may all be individually tailored to a user.
  • Platform intelligence: debugging, code analysis, dependency resolution, and auto completion make the PyCharm IDE efficient and a pleasure to use
  • Support / tutorials guide the user through learning the different capabilities (this was a big deal for me when I switched to using Python / PyCharm after coding in a text editor and R Studio)

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.

PyCharm

  • Copy-paste does not work correctly. The default printing is in the form of Insert. I always need to press the enter button to come out of the insert mode and also have to right-click and select copy or paste instead of default CNTRL c and CNTRL V. It is working good for some others in the team, and I am not able to fix this.
  • Too much of underlining the code considering negligible errors make the code look bad.
  • Auto suggestions sometimes does not work as expected.

PyCharm 8.5
Based on 13 answers
I rate 10/10 because I have never needed a direct customer support from the JetBrains so far. Whenever and for whatever kind of problems I came across, I have been able to resolve it within the internet community, simply by Googling because turns out most of the time, it was me who lacked the proper information to use the IDE or simply make the proper configuration. I have never came across a bug in PyCharm either so it deserves 10/10 for overall support

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.

PyCharm

I've used Sublime, VSCode, Wing IDE, Visual Studio, IntelliJ, WebStorm. For Java development, Intellij is best - being built by the same company as PyCharm it provides a helpful familiarity. The same can be said for WebStorm, although more lightweight IDEs are usually preferred, especially if we like having the team on the same IDE. Visual Studio is far too bulky and cumbersome. Sublime and VSCode are great when I project involve multiple languages.

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!

PyCharm

  • Definitely improves developer productivity.
  • Fixing syntax errors is super easy and fast which is normally difficult in languages like Python.
  • It provides the option to read the documentation within IDE itself which is great and saves a lot of time rather than googling things.
  • No negative impacts.
