Data loader for SQLAlchemy

Project description


clue_sqlaloader provides a mechanism for populating a sql database using SQLAlchemy and YAML.


clue_sqlaloader was primarily meant to run from inside other applications as a framework piece but can be run from the command-line as follows:

$ python -m clue_sqlaloader.__init__ sqlite:///somefile.db data.yaml

The typical way to use the loader from within Python is as follows:

from clue_sqlaloader import Loader
loader = Loader(sqlalchemy_session)

The format of the YAML should be similar to the following:

- model: mymodule.Group
  refname: !!refname "admingroup"
    name: admin
- model: mymodule.User
    username: testuser1
    groups: [!!ref "admingroup"]
    set_password: testuser1

The model and fields arguments are straightforward. The execute argument will call the given function name on the newly created object with the given value.
