Schema inspection for PostgreSQL

Project Description

Schema inspection for PostgreSQL (and potentially others in the future).

Inspects tables, views, materialized views, constraints, indexes, sequences, enums, functions, and extensions.

Limitations: Function inspection only confirmed to work with SQL/PLPGSQL languages so far.

Basic Usage

Get an inspection object from an already opened SQLAlchemy session or connection as follows:

from schemainspect import get_inspector
from sqlbag import S

with S('postgresql:///example') as s:
    i = get_inspector(s)

The inspection object has attributes for tables, views, and all the other things it tracks. At each of these attributes you’ll find a dictionary (OrderedDict) mapping from fully-qualified-and-quoted-name-of-thing-in-database to information object.

For instance, the information about a table books would be accessed as follows:

>>> books_table = i.tables['"public"."books"']
>>> books_table.schema
>>> [ for each in books_table.columns]
['id', 'title', 'isbn']


Documentation is a bit patchy at the moment. Watch this space!


Install with pip:

$ pip install schemainspect

To install psycopg2 (the PostgreSQL driver) at the same time as well:

$ pip install schemainspect[pg]
