No release out yet!

ssidql (SSIDQL: Simple Item Definition and Query Language) is a language aimed at managing simple items. These items can be defined, combined, removed and changed.

ssidql can be used both as a command line tool and as a Python module. It requires Python 3.1+.

ssidql is part of the roptoligs project (but can be used independently of other roptoligs modules). See the roptoligs wiki at for details.


ssidql is free software under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License version 3 (or any later version). This is version 0.1.0 of the program.


To install ssidql, run:

python3 install

You must be a superuser to do this.

Use as command line tool

When you have installed ssidql, run:

ssidql --help

to see how to interact with ssidql via the command-line.

Use as Python module

When ssidql has been installed, it can be used just like any other Python module. To see which parts of the module are useful, and to see how those parts function, run:

pydoc3 ssidql

ssidql can be imported with a simple import statement.


ssidql uses Git for code management. To get the latest branch, clone it from like this:

$ git clone git://
