Connects to a MySQL database and exports selected data to JSON.

Project description

Connects to a MySQL database and exports selected data to JSON.

## Usage
```
mysql-to-json [-h] [-d DATABASE] [-H HOSTNAME] [-P PORT] [-u USER] [-p]
[-e QUERY]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-d DATABASE, --database DATABASE
MySQL database name.
-H HOSTNAME, --hostname HOSTNAME
MySQL host name.
-P PORT, --port PORT MySQL port number.
-u USER, --user USER MySQL username.
-p, --password Shh! It's a secret.
-e QUERY, --query QUERY
Query to run.
```

## Examples

All examples simple select all table information from `information_schema` and save it to `tables.json`

### Simple

This assumes we have full access to the mysql database from localhost.

```
$> mysql-to-json -e 'SELECT * FROM information_schema.tables' > tables.json
```

### Medium Complexity

This explicitly sets a user and asks for a password, while still connecting to localhost.

```
$> mysql-to-json -d mysql -u seth -p -e 'SELECT * FROM information_schema.tables' > tables.json
```

### All The Things!

This explicitly sets every command line option available.

```
$> mysql-to-json -h mydbserver.myhost.com -P 3306 -d mysql -u seth -p -e 'SELECT * FROM information_schema.tables' > tables.json
```
