Parse database connection strings

Project description


Parse database connection strings in python. Currently only supports MySQL.

>>> import cxnstr
>>> params = cxnstr.to_dict("myhost:3306/MyDB?read_default_file=~/.my.cnf")
>>> params
{'host': 'myhost', 'port': 3306, 'db': 'MyDB', 'read_default_file': '~/.my.cnf'}
>>> import pymysql
>>> conn = pymysql.connect(**params)

See doctests for full connection string specification.

The library also includes a command line program for parsing connection strings and outputting in various formats:

$ cxnstr -t json "myhost:3306/MyDB?read_default_file=~/.my.cnf"
{"read_default_file": "~/.my.cnf", "db": "MyDB", "host": "myhost", "port": 3306}
