Pg is the Ruby interface to the PostgreSQL RDBMS.
It works with PostgreSQL 8.4 and later.
A small example usage:
#!/usr/bin/env ruby require 'pg' # Output a table of current connections to the DB conn = PG.connect( dbname: 'sales' ) conn.exec( "SELECT * FROM pg_stat_activity" ) do |result| puts " PID | User | Query" result.each do |row| puts " %7d | %-16s | %s " % row.values_at('procpid', 'usename', 'current_query') end end
Ruby 1.9.3-p392, or 2.0.0-p0.
PostgreSQL 8.4.x or later (with headers, -dev packages, etc).
It may work with earlier versions of Ruby/PostgreSQL as well, but those are not regularly tested.
Install via RubyGems:
gem install pg
You may need to specify the path to the 'pg_config' program installed with Postgres:
gem install pg -- --with-pg-config=<path to pg_config>
If you're installing via Bundler, you can provide compile hints like so:
bundle config build.pg --with-pg-config=<path to pg_config>
See README-OS_X.rdoc for more information about installing under MacOS X, and README-Windows.rdoc for Windows build/installation instructions.
After checking out the source, run:
$ rake newb
This task will install any missing dependencies, run the tests/specs, and generate the API documentation.
