An ibis backend for querying datasette

Project description

github pypi

ibis-datasette provides a datasette backend for ibis. This lets you query any datasette server using a familiar dataframe-like API (rather than SQL).


ibis-datasette is available on pypi:

$ pip install ibis-datasette


Once installed, you can connect to any datasette server using the ibis.datasette.connect function. This takes the full URL to a database For example, to connect to the legislators database.

In [1]: import ibis

In [2]: con = ibis.datasette.connect("")

Once connected, you can interact with tables using ibis just as you would a local sqlite database:

In [3]: ibis.options.interactive = True  # enable interactive mode

In [4]: con.list_tables()

In [5]: t = con.tables.legislators  # access the `legislators` table

In [6]: t.name_first.topk(5)  # top 5 first names for legislators
  name_first  count
