A PostgreSQL kernel for IPython
# A simple Jupyter kernel for PostgreSQL
Install with pip install postgres_kernel
To use, run one of:
`bash jupyter notebook # In the notebook interface, select PostgreSQL from the 'New' menu jupyter qtconsole --kernel postgres jupyter console --kernel postgres `
## How to use:
There are a couple of specially formatted comments for controlling the connection string and autocommit mode.
`sql -- connection: postgres://brian:password@localhost:5432/dbname -- autocommit: true -- (or false) `
For details of how this works, see Jupyter’s docs on [wrapper kernels](http://jupyter-client.readthedocs.io/en/latest/wrapperkernels.html). This is heavily based on [takluyver/bash_kernel](https://github.com/takluyver/bash_kernel). Just look at our git log :)
