PostgreSQL for Gevent kept Simple

Project description


  • db(sql, *values).row/rows/affected
  • id = db_insert(table_name, _return='id', name=value,..)
  • affected = db_update(table_name, where=dict(name=value, item_in=tuple_of_values), name=value,..)
  • result = db_transaction(code)
  • raise db_rollback
  • db("""ALTER TYPE "my_type" ADD VALUE 'my_value'""", autocommit=True)  # Avoid "cannot run inside a transaction block".
  • db('SELECT * FROM "table" WHERE "name" LIKE %s', escape_like(fragment))
  • connection pool blocks only for the first connection - for quick deploy
  • auto reconnect and retry
  • optional log of each query
