An opinionated lightweight wrapper around various SQL backend drivers.

Project description

An opinionated lightweight wrapper around various SQL backend drivers.

Support right now is available for the following:

  • MySQL / MariaDB via mysqlclient
  • Microsoft SQL Server via pymssql
  • mongoDB via pymongo


  • Opens and closes a connection for every query. I realize this is not what everyone needs. But I use this workflow in a lot of my projects, hence, opinionated.
  • Uses yield to return a generator to fetch large amount of data from a DB without loading everything into the memory.
  • Logs last executed query and time for query execution with a unique ID so queries can be traced in log messages.


pip install rapyd_db

Make sure you are also installing the appropriate drivers for your respective backend as mentioned above.

Or you can install with driver like this:

pip install rapyd_db[mysql]


# import this
from rapyd_db.backends.mysql import MySQL

# create the DB object; no connection is done at this point
# any argument accepted by the underlying DB driver can be passed
db = MySQL(host='', user='', passwd='', db='')

# run queries like so

# select large data
rows = db.execute("SELECT * FROM blah")
for row in rows:

# insert data
    'INSERT INTO blah(key) VALUE (%s)',
    ('value1', )

This is an excerpt of the log messages using basicConfig. This will change depending on your logging configuration:

  • Add robust tests for all backends.


For these tests to run successfully, the test rig should have access to a DB backend.


Here are some environment variables that can be set for the various backends.

MySQL Backend


Running Tests

A very easy way to set these environment variables would be to add them to a shell script file and source them like so:

source ./

To run all tests, run the following command:

python -m unittest dicover -v

To run tests for a specific backend, issue the following command:

python -m unittest sqlbootstrap.tests.test_mysql
