This morning's lightning talk on sqlpython was an example of what's so great about PyCon - it instantly really good suggestions about how to go onward with sqlpython development, and offers of collaboration. Awesome!
Except that I forgot to show the instant graphs using \b / \l terminators. Rats! That's the most eye-catching part!
I wasn't prepared for the common question, though: "Where's the repository?" Well, it's here:
https://www.assembla.com/wiki/show/sqlpython It is crazy-unstable, and if you're actually trying to use it, use the PyPI version instead.
I mean to get a link to that into the docs as soon as possible, but I don't have Sphinx configured right on this machine, so that may have to wait.
Quick review of the lightning talk:
* Unix-like powers: cat, ls, grep, >, |
* Python interactive session; access to resultsets (`r`) and bind variables (`binds`)
* Special output formats with alternate terminators (see `help terminators`)
* The magic that makes sqlpython work:
- code (for the embedded Python interpreter)
For further reference, see the sqlpython docs, particularly the comparative review of sqlpython vs. SQL*Plus vs. gqlplus vs. Senora vs. YASQL.
