Install Client Drivers

As of April 12, 2019, CockroachDB v1.1 is no longer supported. For more details, refer to the Release Support Policy.

CockroachDB supports the PostgreSQL wire protocol, so most available PostgreSQL client drivers should work with CockroachDB.

This page features drivers that we have tested enough to claim beta-level support. This means that applications using advanced or obscure features of a driver may encounter incompatibilities. If you encounter problems, please open an issue with details to help us make progress toward full support.
For code samples using these drivers, see the Build an App with CockroachDB tutorials.
