QuickPiggy - launch a PostgreSQL server, without the hassle.

Project Description

by Wicher Minnaard <> <>


This is public domain software.


  • postgresql-server (tested with v9.0), providing ‘postgres’, ‘initdb’, ‘createdb’
  • postgresql libraries and clients (tested with v9.0), providing ‘psql’

Test your prerequisites by running ‘’ as a program.

A makeshift PostgresSQL instance can be obtained quite easily:

pig = quickpiggy.Piggy(volatile=True, create_db=’somedb’)

conn = psycopg2.connect(pig.dsnstring())

Most other use cases can be accommodated for by passing more parameters.

This version works with Python 2.7 and 3.1+.
