Aito Command Line Interface SQL Integration

The Aito CLI supports integration between your SQL database and the Aito database

Supported functions

  • Infer a table schema from the result of a SQL query:
    aito infer-table-schema from-sql "PostgreSQL Unicode" "SELECT * FROM tableName" > inferredSchema.json
  • Upload the result of a SQL to an existing table:
    aito database upload-data-from-sql "MySQL ODBC 8.0 Driver" tableName "SELECT * FROM tableName"
  • Infer schema, create table, and upload the result of a SQL to the database:
    aito database quick-add-table-from-sql "PostgreSQL Unicode" -s localhost -u root -d testDB -tableName "SELECT * FROM tableName"

Additional Installation

The Aito CLI uses the python module pyodbc to access to ODBC databases. You need to install:

  • The ODBC driver manager (varies from system, read the instructions below)
  • Install the aitoai package with SQL feature
    pip install aitoai[SQL]
    or install the pyodbc package on top of the original aitoai package
    pip install aitoai
    pip install pyodbc
  • Your database specific ODBC driver

to enable the CLI's sql integration functions. More instructions regarding the pyodbc library and connecting to different databases can be found here

Install the ODBC Driver Manager:

  • Ubuntu:
    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install unixodbc
    sudo apt install unixodbc-dev
  • Mac:
    brew update
    brew install unixodbc freetds
  • Generic Linux:
    sudo yum check-update
    sudo yum install unixODBC.x86_64
    sudo yum install unixODBC-devel.x86_64

Install PostgreSQL ODBC Driver:

The official instructions can be found here

  • Ubuntu:
    sudo apt install odbc-postgresql
  • Mac:
    brew install psqlodbc
  • Generic Linux:
    sudo yum install postgresql-odbc.x86_64

Install MySQL ODBC Driver:

The official instructions can be found here

  • Download the appropriate binary installer for your OS here. The example below is for Ubuntu 18.04
  • Binary installation by:
tar zxvf mysql-connector-odbc-8.0.18-linux-ubuntu18.04-x86-64bit.tar.gz
sudo cp mysql-connector-odbc-8.0.18-linux-ubuntu18.04-x86-64bit.tar.gz/bin/* /usr/local/bin
sudo cp mysql-connector-odbc-8.0.18-linux-ubuntu18.04-x86-64bit.tar.gz/lib/* /usr/local/lib
sudo chmod 777 /usr/local/lib/libmyodbc*
sudo myodbc-installer -a -d -n "MySQL ODBC 8.0 Driver" -t "Driver=/usr/local/lib/"
  • Verify that the driver is installed and registered:
myodbc-installer -d -l

Setting up the credentials to your SQL database

There are 3 ways to set up the credentials:

  • The most convenient way is to set up the following environment variables:

    SQL_SERVER=server to connect to
    SQL_PORT=port to connect to
    SQL_USER=username for authentication
    SQL_PASSWORD=password for authentication

    You can now perform the sql operations. For example:

    aito infer-table-schema from-sql "PostgreSQL Unicode" "SELECT * FROM table"
  • Using a dotenv (.env) file:

    Your .env file should contain environment variables as described above.

    You can set up the credentials using a dotenv file with the -e flag. For example:

    aito infer-table-schema from-sql -e path/to/myDotEnvFile.env "PostgreSQL Unicode" "SELECT * FROM table"
  • Using flags:

    You can set up the credentials using -s flag for the server, -P flag for the port, -d flag for the database, -u flag for the username, and -p for the password

You can’t perform that action at this time.
