PostgreSQL on Mac?

Is there something like MAMP, but uses PostgreSQL instead? I found a
couple PostgreSQL dmg’s, but one was < 8.x. For those who use PostgreSQL
on Mac, how’d you install it (fink, package, please don’t say compile!)?

Thanks,
Joe

There’s a PostgreSQL port available via Darwinports.

Thanks for the replies everybody. I also found PostgreSQLX:

It’s just an app that you click to launch (yay), but it’s 7.x.

Joe,
look at this: http://www.magic3.org/postgrex/ , it’s only japanese, I
know…
and I can’t understand a word… but looking at the screenshoots it
seems
like a nice frontend gui for Postgresql 8.1.4 for Mac OS X (PPC and
Binary).

Let me know how it works if you have the courage I hadn’t to install it
on a
test machine!

You can also take a look at EnterpriseDB. It’s Postgres with
extensions to make it handle Oracle PL/SQL better. Their main selling
point is they’ve added ‘Oracle compatibility’ to PostgreSQL. They have
an OS X version with a front end GUI but it’s 8.0.x and not 8.1.x …

If you decide to use it with Rails, be aware that it doesn’t have a
Unix domain socket that I am aware of and it uses port 5444 to
communicate. So you would have to use TCP/IP port 5444 in your
database.yml if you go this route …

I compiled it. It was trivial to do so, and the documentation on the
PostgreSQL site is pretty good.
