PostgreSQL hstore formatter

Project Description

This small module implements a formatter and a loader for hstore, one of PostgreSQL supplied modules, that stores simple key-value pairs.

>>> dumps({u'a': u'1'})
>>> loads('"a"=>"1"')
{u'a': u'1'}
>>> src = [('pgsql', 'mysql'), ('python', 'php'), ('gevent', 'nodejs')]
>>> loads(dumps(src), return_type=list)
[(u'pgsql', u'mysql'), (u'python', u'php'), (u'gevent', u'nodejs')]

You can easily install the package from PyPI by using pip or easy_install:

$ pip install pghstore
