I have pgAdmin on my dock, and can open it when the process isn't already running (ie. after a restart, or if I manually kill it).
If I open pgAdmin, close the window, then later try to open it from the dock, the app doesn't respond.
This dock behavior is similar to MySQL Workbench, except that MySQL has the "running process indicator" (little circle on dock below the icon), while pgAdmin does not, which means that right clicking on the pgAdmin icon does not give me the option to quit.
I tried using a bash function, which for MySQL would look like this:
killall MySQLWorkbench && open /Applications/MySQLWorkbench.app
This works fine for MySQL Workbench, but isn't necessary since I can restart it from the dock.
For some reason, with pgAdmin, the process doesn't get killed, so the app never opens:
>> killall pgAdmin\ 4
No matching processes were found
The app is clearly visible in Activity Monitor with the name
The only solution I have currently is to manually kill the process from Activity Monitor, but this is quite redundant.
How can I conveniently restart pgAdmin 4?
I would prefer a solution that allows me to restart it from the dock, but a bash script would also suffice.
- pgAdmin 4 : 4.17
- macOS Catalina : 10.15
