Client Drivers

CockroachDB v19.1 is no longer supported as of October 30, 2020. 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.


For code samples using these drivers, see Build an App 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.
