Helper funcs and tools for working with SQL in mysql or postgresql

Project description


This is meant to be a simple way to explore a postgresql/mysql database and get data out (super light wrapper to SQLAlchemy).

Connect with DB url in the following formats:

  • postgresql://someuser:somepassword@somehost/somedatabase

  • mysql://someuser:somepassword@somehost/somedatabase

    Note: This package uses pymysql driver for connecting to mysql. Urls that start with mysql:// will automatically be changed to use mysql+pymysql://.


$ pip3 install sql-helper


In [1]: from sql_helper import SQL

In [2]: sql = SQL('postgresql://someuser:somepassword@somehost/somedatabase')

In [3]: table_names = sql.get_tables()

In [4]: results = sql.execute('SELECT ...')



Ensure the pg_config executable is on the system
$ sudo apt-get install -y libpq-dev


$ brew install postgresql

Then install sqlalchemy-redshift wherever you installed sql-helper

$ venv/bin/pip3 install sqlalchemy-redshift

Connect with DB url in the following format:

  • redshift+psycopg2://someuser:somepassword@somehost/somedatabase
