C# is by no means originally a Mac or iOS platform, with Xamarin’s work and Mono, it has certainly become a viable tool. Unlike most of our other code projects, these are source code examples of work we have done, and found useful. They are available as source, but also as a single downloadable assembly.
On the Mac platform, there exists a few options in the realm of the Relational Database Management System. Unfortunately, these systems are all either very pricey, or have poor support from applications because they lack either marketshare or mindshare. Today there is a huge amount of support for several open source products, of which PostgreSQL is among the best, and with a very commercial friendly licensing terms, it is a very attractive database for the Mac user, developer and enterprise all.
Highly scalable, and with an excellent support base in the open source community, bringing high quality tools and support the PostgreSQL on the Mac platform seems a natural fit, and that is the intent here. Providing a base of a solid server package in addition to lightweight management and client tools. In addition to that free base there are support contracts available, as well as CD installers.
The ODBCKit is an open source framework for Cocoa developers to leverage the underlying Open Database Connectivity resources in the business network. Built with the intent of providing an easy and approachable toolkit for Cocoa Developers, it has evolved into a little bit more, also providing a couple of Automator Actions to the provide user level access to the ODBC databases.
The PGSQLKit is an open source framework for Cocoa developers to leverage the power of PostgreSQL in their applications. Built with the intent of providing an easy and approachable toolkit for Cocoa Developers, it has evolved into a little bit more.
We get a lot of questions about Open Source tools that use PostgreSQL. LedgerSMB is among the most common, as it seems to give a lot of people trouble. Rather than answer the question repeatedly, here is a document the illustrates the process. We consider it donation-ware, if you find it useful, send us a few bucks. The download is, however, free.
