Installation

The library is available on PyPI. Use pip to install it:

$ pip install edgedb

Basic Usage

import datetime
import edgedb

def main():
    client = edgedb.create_client()
    # Create a User object type
    client.execute('''
        CREATE TYPE User {
            CREATE REQUIRED PROPERTY name -> str;
            CREATE PROPERTY dob -> cal::local_date;
        }
    ''')

    # Insert a new User object
    client.query('''
        INSERT User {
            name := <str>$name,
            dob := <cal::local_date>$dob
        }
    ''', name='Bob', dob=datetime.date(1984, 3, 1))

    # Select User objects.
    user_set = client.query(
        'SELECT User {name, dob} FILTER .name = <str>$name', name='Bob')
    # *user_set* now contains
    # Set{Object{name := 'Bob', dob := datetime.date(1984, 3, 1)}}

    # Close the client.
    client.close()

if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()
