Install with pip:

pip install brunns-row

(As usual, use of a venv or virtualenv is recommended.)


The basic approach is to create a wrapper object from some kind of description - typically a DBAPI cursor's description, or a csv.DictReader's fieldnames attribute - then to use the wrapper's wrap(row) method to wrap each row. wrap(row) returns an object from which you can access the row's fields as attributes. A couple of simple examples:


cursor = conn.cursor()
cursor.execute("SELECT kind, rating FROM sausages ORDER BY rating DESC;")
wrapper = RowWrapper(cursor.description)
rows = [wrapper.wrap(row) for row in cursor.fetchall()]
for row in rows:
    print(row.kind, row.rating)


reader = csv.DictReader(csv_file)
wrapper = RowWrapper(reader.fieldnames)
rows = [wrapper.wrap(row) for row in reader]
for row in rows:
    print(row.kind, row.rating)

Attributes names are simply the column names where possible, converted to valid identifiers where necessary by replacing invalid characters with "_"s, prefixing any leading numerics with "a_", and de-duplicating where necessary by adding numeric suffixes.


Requires tox. Run make precommit tells you if you're OK to commit. For more options, run:

make help


Requires hub, setuptools, wheel and twine. To release n.n.n:

make precommit && git commit -am"Release $version" && git push # If not already all pushed, which it should be.
hub release create $version -m"Release $version"
python sdist bdist_wheel
twine upload dist/*$version*

Quick version:

git commit -am"Release $version" && git push && hub release create $version -m"Release $version" && python sdist bdist_wheel && twine upload dist/*$version*
