Middleware for integrating Falcon applications with SQLAlchemy.
The falcon-sqla package provides a middleware component for managing SQLAlchemy sessions. The manager component can also serve as a base building block or a recipe for more complex use cases, such as applications leveraging multiple database binds.
Until this package is published on PyPi:
$ pip install falcon-sqla
The falcon_sqla session Manager can be used in two ways:
- As a Falcon middleware component
- As a context manager to explicitly provide a database session
- Create a SQLAlchemy engine.
- Pass the engine to the Manager() initializer as its first parameter.
- If using the manager as a middleware component, pass its middleware property to the falcon.API() (to be renamed to falcon.App in Falcon 3.0+) initializer:
engine = create_engine('driver+dialect://my/database') manager = falcon_sqla.Manager(engine) app = falcon.API(middleware=[manager.middleware]) # The database session will be available as req.context.session
A falcon_sqla.Manager can also explicitly provide a database session using the session_scope() context manager:
# Somewhere inside a responder with self.manager.session_scope(req, resp) as session: # Use the session # <...>
Custom Vertical Partitioning
Simple random selection of read- and write- database replicas is supported out of the box. Use the add_engine() method to instruct the Manager to include the provided engines in the runtime bind selection logic:
manager = falcon_sqla.Manager(engine) read_replica = create_engine('driver+dialect://my/database.replica') manager.add_engine(read_replica, 'r')
The Manager.get_bind() method can be overridden to implement custom engine selection logic for more complex use cases.
