A Common Lisp library to smooth some of CLSQLs rough edges

branch: master
README.md

CLSQL-Helper

A library providing a clutch of utilities to make working with clsql easier

  • single interface functions that make a best effort to read/write a date in (m)any formats
    • convert-to-clsql-date(time) and
  • simplified sql-expression interface
    • clsql-or(s), clsql-and(s) and clsql-exp which make building where expressions easier
  • clsql-mop help, find the primary keys of an object and query / test equality with these
  • A basic sql pretty printer, so that the code printed from log-database-query , which uses the clsql printer and allows easily recording queries executing on a given connection
  • coersion to/from clsql data types an value

db-object - class

Web Thread Safety - through dynamic connection binding

If you def-view-classes inherit from clsql-helper:db-object then they will never use stored database connections (from view-database slot) and instead will prefer the dynamic default-database.

Using with-database/with-a-database then become useful ways to interact with clsql in a multithreaded web environment.

Automatic Primary Key filling

While there is code in clsql to handle filling primary keys, I have never quite wrapped my head around it. Instead if you inherit from mssql-db-object or pg-db-object the db-objects will autofill single primary keys (from IDENTITY / SERIAL) Primary Key columns.

This is somewhat specific to how we design databases (most all tables have a single IDENTITY / SERIAL PK) and might not be applicable to all situations

Future

  • My company Acceleration.net is a significant contributer to clsql so I hope that some of these changes can be moved upstream eventually
