DB API 2.0-compliant Linux driver for SQL Server
cTDS is a full Python DB API-2.0-compliant SQL Server database library for Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X supporting both Python 2 and Python 3.
The full documentation for cTDS can be found here.
Generate documentation using the following:
make doc # Generated to ./.gh-pages
Documentation is hosted on GitHub Pages. As such, the source code for the documentation pages must be committed to the master branch in order to update the live documentation.
Local development and testing is supported on linux-based systems running Docker. Docker containers are used for both running a local instance of SQL Server on Linux and creating containers for each combination of Python and FreeTDS version supported.
# Install as a "develop" egg pip install -e . # Install tests. pip install -e .[tests] # Run tests (requires SQL Server running) python setup.py test
Development and testing will require an instance of SQL Server on Linux running for validation. A script is provided to start a Docker container running the database and create the login used by the tests.
# Start a docker-based SQL Server instance. make start-sqlserver # Run tests as needed ... # Stop the docker-base SQL Server instance. make stop-sqlserver
Testing is designed to be relatively seemless, using Docker containers and SQL Server on Linux. All test targets will ensure a running database instance docker container exists and is accessible prior to running.
