This looks like it could be a quick, simple way to use databases in Python where something like sqlalchemy would be overkill.
“Peewee is a simple and small ORM. It has few (but expressive) concepts, making it easy to learn and intuitive to use.”
Here are some examples from the quickstart:
from peewee import * db = SqliteDatabase('people.db') # or in memory # db = SqliteDatabase(':memory:') class Person(Model): name = CharField() birthday = DateField() class Meta: database = db # This model uses the "people.db" database. class Pet(Model): owner = ForeignKeyField(Person, backref='pets') name = CharField() animal_type = CharField() class Meta: database = db # this model uses the "people.db" database db.connect() db.create_tables([Person, Pet]) from datetime import date uncle_bob = Person(name='Bob', birthday=date(1960, 1, 15)) uncle_bob.save() # bob is now stored in the database # ... grandma = Person.get(Person.name == 'Grandma L.') query = Pet.select().where(Pet.animal_type == 'cat') for pet in query: print(pet.name, pet.owner.name) for pet in Pet.select().join(Person).where(Person.name == 'Bob'): print(pet.name)
