Install PostgreSQL on WSL 2 and Access it through pgAdmin on Windows

Why install PostgreSQL on WSL 2?

I tried to download from the official website and install PostgreSQL 13.1 for Windows x86–64, and this was the error I couldn’t get rid of — Unable to write inside TEMP environment variable path.

WSL 2

Why Use Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL 2)?

Unlike WSL 1, which uses a translation layer between Linux and Windows, the latest WSL 2 uses virtual machine technology to allow you to run a real Linux kernel directly on Windows 10. WSL 2 also allows you to run Docker natively on Windows 10.

This project is inspired and built on top of the 2D implementation of WFC in Houdini by if. I really appreciate his support through this journey as I started this project with zero Houdini knowledge. You can view his original article here in Chinese.

This project studies Wave Function Collapse (WFC), a constraint-based algorithm for Procedural Content Generation(PDG), and implements it in Houdini, a procedural content creation tool to create a 3D content generator that outputs diverse prototypes which could potentially be used in the design and entertainment industry.
