A simple, SQL-ish language for DynamoDB

As of November 2020, Amazon has released PartiQL support for DynamoDB. You should investigate that first to see if it addresses your needs.

Getting Started

The easiest way to use DQL is to download and run the install script:

curl -o install.py https://raw.githubusercontent.com/stevearc/dql/master/bin/install.py
python install.py

This will create a standalone dql file that you can run. If you would instead like to install it with pip:

pip install dql

Here are some basic DQL examples to get you going:

Start the REPL:

$ dql
us-west-1>

Creating a table:

us-west-1> CREATE TABLE forum_threads (name STRING HASH KEY,
         >                             subject STRING RANGE KEY,
         >                             THROUGHPUT (4, 2));

Inserting data:

us-west-1> INSERT INTO forum_threads (name, subject, views, replies)
         > VALUES ('Self Defense', 'Defense from Banana', 67, 4),
         > ('Self Defense', 'Defense from Strawberry', 10, 0),
         > ('Cheese Shop', 'Anyone seen the camembert?', 16, 1);

Queries:

us-west-1> SCAN * FROM forum_threads;
us-west-1> SELECT count(*) FROM forum_threads WHERE name = 'Self Defense';
us-west-1> SELECT * FROM forum_threads WHERE name = 'Self Defense';

Mutations:

us-west-1> UPDATE forum_threads ADD views 1 WHERE
         > name = 'Self Defense' AND subject = 'Defense from Banana';
us-west-1> DELETE FROM forum_threads WHERE name = 'Cheese Shop';

Changing tables:

us-west-1> ALTER TABLE forum_threads SET THROUGHPUT (8, 4);
us-west-1> DROP TABLE forum_threads;
