Load a csv file into a database
loadcsv is a programa and a library to load CSV files to databases and for converting CSV files to SQL inserrt or update statements.
The utility gets the names of the columns from the first row of the CSV file.
I wrote this utility because I was tired of doing always small scripts for doing this kind os loads.
By now the utility suport MySQL, PostgresSQL and sqlite, but can be used with other SQL databases using the utility to generate the SQL statements and sending them to the database:
Usage: loadcsv [options] filename.csv If no database provided, display SQL to stdout Options:: -h, --help show this help message and exit -D DRIVER, --driver=DRIVER database driver mysql, pgsql, sqlite -H HOSTNAME, --hostname=HOSTNAME database server hostname,defaults to localhost -d DBNAME, --dbname=DBNAME database name (filename on sqlite) -u USER, --user=USER database username -p PASSWORD, --password=PASSWORD database password -P PORT, --port=PORT database port -t TABLE, --table=TABLE database table to load --test run text, do no commit to the database --delimiter=DELIMITER CSV file field delimiter, by default semi-colon
he project code and bugtracker is hosted on Bitbucket.
pip install loadcsv
