Python implementation for turning SQL results into beautiful JSON structures.

Project Description

ReStruct is an easy light-weight formatting library that simplifies the process of representing SQL results in a human readable format (JSON). Pass the restruct method your SQL results and a formatting structure and voila, you have turned your complex SQL result into beautiful JSON. One of the best features of ReStruct is squashing all the duplicate entries from SQL joins into a sub section of your JSON structure.

Usage examples

Lets assume we have an SQL join for a 1 to 1 relationship and that all the format variables used represent columns in the select tables.

SELECT user_id,
  FROM users
  JOIN user_levels USING (user_level_id)


An example format structure for results from the above query:

    ".single": true,
    ".key": "{user_id}",
    "id": ": {user_id}",
    "level": {
        "id": ": {user_level}",
        "name": ": {user_level_name}"
    "name": {
        "first": ":< first_name",
        "last": ":< last_name",
        "full": "{first_name} {last_name}"
    "email": true
