Epoxy - bind data to queries for any query language.

Let me hit ya with some science!

ep = Epoxy.new("select * from foo where bar=?")
binds = %W[foo]
bound_query = ep.quote { |x| "'" + binds[x] + "'" }
"select * from foo where bar='foo'"

Epoxy handles:

  • ? for numbered binds (named binds coming soon!)

  • ?? for a real question mark

  • '?' for a real question mark

  • comments, weird quoting styles (look at the “holy shit” test for examples)

  • not telling you how to quote your data. This solution works for any query language and any database.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
