Datasette plugin for executing SQL queries from templates

Project description


PyPI CircleCI License

Datasette plugin for executing SQL queries from templates.

This plugin makes a new function, sql(sql_query), available to your Datasette templates.

You can use it like this:

{% for row in sql("select 1 + 1 as two, 2 * 4 as eight") %}
    {% for key in row.keys() %}
        {{ key }}: {{ row[key] }}<br>
    {% endfor %}
{% endfor %}

The plugin will execute SQL against the current database for the page in database.html, table.html and row.html templates. If a template does not have a current database (index.html for example) the query will execute against the first attached database.

You can pass an optional second argument to specify a named database to use for the query. For example, if you have attached a news.db database you could use this:

{% for article in sql(
    "select headline, date, summary from articles order by date desc limit 5",
) %}
    <h3>{{ article.headline }}</h2>
    <p class="date">{{ }}</p>
    <p>{{ article.summary }}</p>
{% endfor %}
