Run a Postgres App

Since Neon compute is regular Postgres any Postgres app will run out of the box. You can also use all the standard client utilities like ‘psql’ and ‘pg_dump’, and client libraries and drivers to connect.

All connection to Postgres are done via an endpoint hosted at You can try it right away by running psql -h in your terminal.

At the moment it doesn't provide automatic connection pooling and you need to use pg_bouncer or a similar tool. Neon will enable connection pooling in the future releases.
