PaGoDump: release & trick

Release

First of all my congratulations to the whole advanced mankind – PaGoDump v1.0.2 is out!

For people in the tank PaGoDump v1.0.2 is a free GUI Windows utility for backing up a PostgreSQL database with Unicode support.

Trick

Now that PaGoDump takes command-line parameters and pgAdmin III v1.10 supports plugins as well, I rushed to take advantage of this:

  1. Open %pgAdmin%\plugins.ini configuration file in your favourite text editor
  2. Add these lines:
;
; PaGoDump (Windows):
;
[Separator]
Title=PaGoDump
Command=”C:\PaGoDump\PaGoDump.exe” –host=”$$HOSTNAME” –port=$$PORT –user=”$$USERNAME” –db=”$$DATABASE” –pwd=”$$PASSWORD”
Description=Perform a backup of the current database.
KeyFile=C:\PaGoDump\PaGoDump.exe
Platform=windows
ServerType=postgresql
Database=Yes
SetPassword=No

Pay attention that Command option is the one long line.

Take care!
