Export CSV reports of database views.

Project description

Generate CSV reports by simply creating SQL views.

Authenticated staff members can then directly download these reports as CSV. It’s a nice agile way to deal with the changing requirements for reports.

Quick start

  1. Include the URLconf in your project urls.py like this:

    url(r'^reports/', include('view_export.urls')),
    
  2. Create an SQL view in your database:

    => CREATE VIEW v_staff_names AS (
    ->      SELECT first_name, last_name FROM auth_user
    ->      WHERE is_staff = TRUE);
    

    You’ll probably want to record this SQL in a file such as reports.sql or even better, add it to a Django migration.

  3. Start the development server and visit http://127.0.0.1:8000/reports/view-export/staff_names/ or http://127.0.0.1:8000/reports/view-export/v_staff_names/ to download the SQL view named v_staff as a CSV file.

No settings are required by default and there’s no need to add the package to Django’s INSTALLED_APPS. Staff login access is required, so you may wish to set the LOGIN_URL setting to /admin/login/ initially.
