Simple Postgres Commands I always forget

Here are some simple Postgres commands that I almost always forget

I am a simple man with simple needs. Here are the Postgres commands I use most often that I always forget so have written them here.

  • Connecting in locally – psql -d db_name
  • Listing databases – \l
  • Listing tables – \d
  • Listing schemas - \dn
  • Connecting to a different table – \c
  • Getting help with these \ commands – \?
  • Quitting – \q

I fully expect I will be the only reader of this post!
