Switch branches/tags

A tag already exists with the provided branch name. Many Git commands accept both tag and branch names, so creating this branch may cause unexpected behavior. Are you sure you want to create this branch?

Datastore Connectivity (dsc)

Datastore Connectivity library for Go. GoDoc

This library is compatible with Go 1.10+

Please refer to if you encounter breaking changes.


This library was developed as part of dsunit (Datastore unit testibility library) to provide unified access to SQL, noSQL, or any other store that deals with structured data in SQL-ish way.


The following is a very simple example of CRUD operations with dsc

package main

import (

func main() {

	config := dsc.NewConfig("mysql", "[user]:[password]@[url]", "user:root,password:dev,url:tcp(")
	factory := NewManagerFactory()
	manager, err := factory.Create(config)
    if err != nil {

    // manager := factory.CreateFromURL("file:///etc/myapp/datastore.json")
    interest := Interest{}
    success, err:= manager.ReadSingle(&interest, SELECT id, name, expiry, category FROM interests WHERE id = ?", []interface{}{id},nil)
	if err != nil {

    var intersts = make([]Interest, 0)
    err:= manager.ReadAll(&interests, SELECT id, name, expiry, category FROM interests", nil ,nil)
    if err != nil {

    intersts := []Interest {
        Interest{Name:"Abc", ExpiryTimeInSecond:3600, Category:"xyz"},
        Interest{Name:"Def", ExpiryTimeInSecond:3600, Category:"xyz"},
        Interest{Id:20, Name:"Ghi", ExpiryTimeInSecond:3600, Category:"xyz"},

	inserted, updated, err:= manager.PersistAll(&intersts, "interests", nil)
	if err != nil {
    deleted, err := manager.DeleteAll(&intersts, "intersts", nil)
    if err != nil {
 	fmt.Printf("Inserted %v, updated: %v\n", deleted)

More examples illustrating the use of the API are located in the examples directory.

Details about the API are available in the docs directory.


Go version v1.5+ is required.

To install the latest stable version of Go, visit



  1. Install Go 1.5+ and setup your environment as Documented here.
  2. Get the client in your GOPATH : go get
  • To update the client library: go get -u

Some Hints:

  • To run a go program directly: go run <filename.go>
  • to build: go build -o <output> <filename.go>

API Documentation

API documentation is available in the docs directory.


This library is packaged with a number of tests. Tests require Testify library.
