A client CLI utility for Datasette instances
A client CLI utility for Datasette instances.
Much of the functionality requires Datasette 1.0a2 or higher.
Things you can do with dclient
- Run SQL queries against Datasette and returning the results as JSON
- Run queries against authenticated Datasette instances
- Create aliases and store authentication tokens for convenient access to Datasette
- Insert data into Datasette using the insert API (Datasette 1.0 alpha or higher)
Install this tool using
pip install dclient
If you want to install it in the same virtual environment as Datasette (to use it as a plugin) you can instead run:
datasette install dclient
Running a query
dclient query https://latest.datasette.io/fixtures "select * from facetable limit 1"
To shorten that, create an alias:
dclient alias add fixtures https://latest.datasette.io/fixtures
Then run it like this instead:
dclient query fixtures "select * from facetable limit 1"
Visit dclient.datasette.io for full documentation on using this tool.
