A helper for Postgres + Docker that works for free
A wrapper that wraps a postgres command with connection arguments according to the DATABASE_URL environment variable.
I originally made this because manually typing the connection args to
createdb, etc. became tiring. "Ain't nobody got time for dat".
Let's say your environment is like this:
$ env | grep DATABASE_URL DATABASE_URL=postgres://email@example.com/elevators
You could type:
$ createdb -U docker -h 127.0.0.1 elevators createdb elevators
$ phd createdb createdb -U docker -h 127.0.0.1 elevators createdb elevators
Docker doesn't really have anything to do with this. But now that I've been using Docker to manage my Postgres databases, I can't use defaults anymore.
But wait, there's more!
You can do MySQL stuff too:
$ phd mysql mysql -u docker -h 127.0.0.1 --database elevators Reading table information for completion of table and column names You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A $ phd mysqlcheck --auto-repair mysqlcheck -u docker -h 127.0.0.1 elevators --auto-repair
If your database url isn't DATABASE_URL, you can connect to it by making it the first argument:
$ export FATTYBASE_URL=postgres://fatty@fat/phat $ phd FATTYBASE_URL psql psql -U fatty -h fat phat
Install with pip:
pip install postdoc
Add the flag --postdoc-dry-run to just print the command.
Add the flag --postdoc-quiet to execute the command without printing the debugging line.
