  • postgrest

    REST API for any Postgres database

    Project mention: Sketch of a Post-ORM | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-06-02

    The OP didn't write about a UI and we don't know what their needs are, so for all we know they're writing a Python-based back-end API in REST or GraphQL which is being consumed by a mobile UI or a SPA UI in Reactor or Vue.js or whatever, such that that back-end API doesn't have to provide a UI. If the existing Python back-end doesn't provide a UI then any proposed substitute--including one in SQL--shouldn't have to provide a UI either, just an API. In that case, there are some ready-made solutions already available:

    - PostgREST (https://postgrest.org/): REST API for PostgreSQL

  • beam

    A type-safe, non-TH Haskell SQL library and ORM (by haskell-beam)

    Project mention: How can database libraries be compared to each other? | /r/haskell | 2022-12-05

    One anecdotal opinion from a rando reddit user: I prefer beam despite the boilerplate and more complex types because of the authors make a serious attempt at sql-standards compliance: https://github.com/haskell-beam/beam

  • selda

    A type-safe, high-level SQL library for Haskell

    Project mention: School of Haskell: Basics | news.ycombinator.com | 2022-11-11
  • squeal-postgresql

    Squeal, a deep embedding of SQL in Haskell

    Project mention: Choosing the right abstraction level for SQLite library. | /r/haskell | 2023-03-17

    You may want to have a look at squeal that someone mentioned the other day in the comments of this post.

  • rel8

    Hey! Hey! Can u rel8?

    Project mention: Choosing the right abstraction level for SQLite library. | /r/haskell | 2023-03-17

    I also mention https://github.com/circuithub/rel8 on posts like these since I think it should be more well-known.

  • codd

    Codd helps to apply plain postgres SQL migrations with strong cross-environment consistency checks and atomicity guarantees (by mzabani)

    Project mention: Announcing codd - a tool to apply postgres SQL migrations | /r/haskell | 2023-03-03

    Some possible upsides of codd: - No need to manually write verification SQL. Codd will update schema representation files when you codd add some-migration.sql and will compare those to the actual schema when deploying (I'd say in ways which would be very hard to replicate manually, see an example of what codd checks, giving you the option to rollback if they don't match or proceed but log non-matching db objects. - It seems to be much simpler to set codd up. You need 3 env vars to start, a folder to store your migrations and a self-contained statically linked executable. Just codd add migration.sql your way in after that - This might be very wrong as I couldn't find it explicitly documented, but this GH issue suggests it's not so simple to apply all pending migrations in a single transaction with Sqitch? Maybe it requires some bundling or something along those lines and then it's fine, though. In any case, codd will do this automatically when you run codd up (provided postgresql allows it).

  • sql-simple-mysql

    common middle-level sql client.

  • InfluxDB
