Connect PostgreSQL to Retool and build internal applications like admin panels and dashboards using a drag-and-drop GUI.
Retool connects directly to your PostgreSQL database (via a connection string or regular credentials) and lets you run raw SQL (or issue commands via a GUI) to manage the data in your PostgreSQL tables. For example, you can render users from Postgres into a table and add a button that, when clicked, runs an SQL query and marks that user as approved.
Query your Postgres data via raw SQL, or use Retool's GUI wrapper to safely write, update, and delete without accidentally dropping tables. You can also inspect your schema, save and share queries, and run ad hoc analyses quickly. Pull queries into a text or table component for easy reference and inspection.
Retool gives you a library of 50+ drag-and-drop components to quickly build a UI for your app with out-of-the-box components like tables, buttons, text inputs, and much more. Read, write, and update your PostgreSQL data in minutes.

I tell every technology leader I talk to that they should look at Retool as a way to reduce the burden of building admin UIs and democratize that kind of stuff across their company.

An admin panel for reading from and writing to your customer data, built on PostgreSQL. This app lets you look through customers and take action on your data.
For the most part, internal tools have the same building blocks: tables, text boxes, drop-downs, etc. Retool gives you a simple way to connect these building blocks with [PostgreSQL](https://docs.retool.com/docs/postgresql-integration "postgres integration") so you can build and ship internal tools in hours, not days.
