Install pgAdmin4 in Xubuntu 16.04

31 Mar 2017 ᛫ 1 min read


pgAdmin4 is a rewrite of pgAdmin3 built using Python, javascirpt, and jQuery. It allows for pgAdmin to be accessed locally or via webserver. Here’s how you can install it in Xubuntu 16.04.

Create a virtual environment for pgAdmin4

pgAdmin has a lot of other python dependencies. To save your machine from unwanted updating of system modules, it is good practice to install pgAdmin in a virtial environment of its own.

Here, I’m using virtualenvwrapper:

mkvirtualenv pgAdmin4

The python version I’m using is Python 2.7.12.

Download the pgAdmin4 wheel and install using pip

pip install pgadmin4-1.3-py2.py3-none-any.whl

Your pgAdmin4 will be installed in **/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pgadmin4/**

Configure pgAdmin to run on Desktop mode

Create a in **/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pgadmin4/**

nano <location-of-virtualenv>/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pgadmin4/

and add the line SERVER_MODE = False


Run pgAdmin4

python <location-of-virtualenv>/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pgadmin4/

Access pgAdmin4

Go to http://localhost:5050
