PyPika - Python Query Builder

BuildStatus CoverageStatus Codacy Docs PyPi License


What is PyPika?

PyPika is a Python API for building SQL queries. The motivation behind PyPika is to provide a simple interface for building SQL queries without limiting the flexibility of handwritten SQL. Designed with data analysis in mind, PyPika leverages the builder design pattern to construct queries to avoid messy string formatting and concatenation. It is also easily extended to take full advantage of specific features of SQL database vendors.

What are the design goals for PyPika?

PyPika is a fast, expressive and flexible way to replace handwritten SQL (or even ORM for the courageous souls amongst you). Validation of SQL correctness is not an explicit goal of PyPika. With such a large number of SQL database vendors providing a robust validation of input data is difficult. Instead you are encouraged to check inputs you provide to PyPika or appropriately handle errors raised from your SQL database - just as you would have if you were writing SQL yourself.
