Project description


A simple and fast cli application to load a csv into postgres


pip install csv2pg


csv2pg --help

csv2pg expects the same parameter than psql to setup the postgres connection

# Loading data.csv into public.my_table
csv2pg -h localhost -p 5432 -U postgres -d postgres public.my_table data.csv --verbose
# Using postgres env to set connection variables PGPORT=5432 PGDATABASE=mydb PGUSER=myuser csv2pg public.my_table data.csv --verbose

Dialect discovery

With python csv.Sniffer() class the csv parameters like delimiter, quotechar, escapechar, lineterminator are automatically detected. They can be overriden with cli options.

Basic database utilities

csv2pg will automatically create the table using the header of the csv file. Caution, the option --overwrite will drop the table before inserting the new records in.
