    The Database Toolkit for Python

    SQLAlchemy is one of the most popular libraries to interface with relational databases in Python. Its distinguishing feature is the object-relational mapper (ORM), which allows software engineers to develop classes and automatically map them to a database.

  • Pandas

    Flexible and powerful data analysis / manipulation library for Python, providing labeled data structures similar to R data.frame objects, statistical functions, and much more

    Nowadays, most data professionals working in Python use pandas, a data analysis and manipulation tool centered around the DataFrame. pandas has the built-in capability to translate the results of database queries to a DataFrame, but it requires a connector to a database. While most people are familiar with Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) and Java Database Connectivity (JDBC), you might not know that Snowflake also has its own proprietary connector.

  • Sonar

    Write Clean Python Code. Always.. Sonar helps you commit clean code every time. With over 225 unique rules to find Python bugs, code smells & vulnerabilities, Sonar finds the issues while you focus on the work.
