Vertica CLI with auto-completion and syntax highlighting

Project Description

A Vertica client that does auto-completion and syntax highlighting, based on pgcli.


Just install it like a regular Python package:

pip install vcli


Usage: vcli [OPTIONS] [DATABASE]

  -h, --host TEXT        Database server host address  [default: localhost]
  -p, --port INTEGER     Database server port  [default: 5433]
  -U, --user TEXT        Database username  [default: eliang]
  -W, --prompt-password  Prompt for password  [default: False]
  -w, --password TEXT    Database password  [default: ]
  -v, --version          Print version and exit
  --vclirc TEXT          Location of .vclirc file  [default: ~/.vclirc]
  --help                 Show this message and exit.


# Use URL to connect
vcli vertica://dbadmin:pass@localhost:5433/mydb

# Prompt for password
vcli -h localhost -U dbadmin -W -p 5433 mydb

# Don't prompt for password
vcli -h localhost -U dbadmin -w pass -p 5433 mydb

# Use VERTICA_URL environment variable
VERTICA_URL=vertica://dbadmin:pass@localhost:5433/mydb vcli


Thanks to pgcli. Most of the hard work, especially the auto-completion part, were already done well by the pgcli core team. vcli wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for them.
