Liquibase vs PostgREST: What are the differences?

Developers describe Liquibase as "Source control for your database". Developers store database changes in text-based files on their local development machines and apply them to their local databases. Changelog files can be be arbitrarily nested for better management. On the other hand, PostgREST is detailed as "Automatic REST API for Any Postgres Database". PostgREST serves a fully RESTful API from any existing PostgreSQL database. It provides a cleaner, more standards-compliant, faster API than you are likely to write from scratch.

Liquibase and PostgREST can be primarily classified as "Database" tools.

Liquibase and PostgREST are both open source tools. It seems that PostgREST with 12.5K GitHub stars and 585 forks on GitHub has more adoption than Liquibase with 1.78K GitHub stars and 1.09K GitHub forks.
