Copy contents of a SQL database to another

Project description


Copy tables from a source database to a destination database, with both databases using different SQL engines. This can be used, for example, to copy the contents from a MySQL or MSSQL database to Postgres. While less civilized, the opposite operation might also work :-P


Please install dbcopy using the Python pip command:

pip install -U dbcopy

Depending on the database backend, you may need to also install a connection adapter. Recommended adapters can be installed as extras with the package:

pip install -U dbcopy[postgres,mssql]


You must always specify a source database connection URI and a target database URI:

dbcopy --drop postgresql://localhost/demo sqlite:///demo.sqlite3

There are additional parameters to skip individual tables or normalize tables and column names to the common snake_case form. For these options, please see:

dbcopy --help
