QuickPiggy - launch an impromptu PostgreSQL server, hassle free.

Project description


Launch an impromptu PostgreSQL server, hassle free.


  • postgresql-server (tested with v9.0 - v13.2), providing postgres, initdb and createdb on your $PATH
  • postgresql libraries and clients (tested with v9.0 - v13.2), providing psql on your $PATH

This is mainly a library module, but you can take it for a for a demo spin by running as a program (python

When used as a library, an ephemeral PostgresSQL instance can be obtained quite easily:

pig = quickpiggy.Piggy(volatile=True, create_db='somedb')
conn = psycopg2.connect(pig.dsnstring())

Many use cases can be accommodated for by supplying appropriate parameters to the constructor of Piggy.

This version works with Python 2.7 and 3.1+.
