Tool to build postgres databases for development and testing.

Project description

A small, self contained python library for building postgres database locally that, on first run will:

  • Downloads and compiles a specified version of postgres.
  • Builds a database from a series of SQL commands and by restoring a database dump file.
  • Takes a snapshot of the newly built database files by taking a copy of the folder.

On subsequent builds, it will skip the long, expensive steps of downloading, compiling postgres and restoring a database from a .sql file and just rsync the files across.
