node-postgres 4.0.0

A powerful PostgreSQL client for the Node.js platform, written in pure JavaScript, with built-in libpg bindings for native operations
node-postgres will allow Node.js-driven applications to store and retrieve data from PostgreSQL applications.

The library contains a pure JavaScript driver for various PostgreSQL operations, and additional JS bindings for the libpg library, for supporting extra features that JavaScript alone can't cover.

The basic JavaScript driver is recommended though, since its much faster and covers all the basic database transactions.

The two connection systems (JS and via libpg) are inter-changeable and don't require any code modifications.

Main features:

  • Query queue
  • Active development
  • Fast
  • Heavily tested
  • Row-by-row result streaming
  • Built-in (optional) connection pooling
  • Responsive project maintainer
  • Many supported PostgreSQL features
