or

  1. Fill in the details manually. Select PostgreSQL and click "Create."

Copy the connection details as shown in the "Connect" menu on the bit.io repo page.

Once you've established the connection (by clicking "Connect"), you're good to go! You can select schemas from the menu on the bottom left and view a list of tables on the left sidebar. Double-clicking a table opens it in the main workspace. From there, you can click on individual rows and edit their values in the right sidebar, or double-click on a specific cell and edit it directly.
