Using Python and MySQL in the ETL Process: Using Python and SQLAlchemy

In the previous two articles of this series, we discussed how to use Python and SQLAlchemy to perform the ETL process. Today we’ll do the same, but this time using Python and SQL Alchemy without SQL commands in textual format. This will enable us to use SQLAlchemy regardless of the database engine we’re connected to. So, let’s start. Today we’ll discuss how to perform the ETL process using Python and SQLAlchemy.

Using Python and MySQL in the ETL Process: SQLAlchemy

SQLAlchemy helps you work with databases in Python. In this post, we tell you everything you need to know to get started with this module. In the previous article, we talked about how to use Python in the ETL process. We focused on getting the job done by executing stored procedures and SQL queries. In this article and the next, we’ll use a different approach. Instead of writing SQL code, we’ll use the SQLAlchemy toolkit.

ORMs Under the Hood

It often happens that if something is loved, it is also hated with the same power. The idea of object relational mapping fits into this concept perfectly. You will definitely come across many opposite points and fierce discussions as well as unwavering advocates and haters. So if you have ever asked whether to use ORM or not, the answer “it depends” will not be enough.What Is an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM)?Object-relational mapping refers to synchronization between two different representations of data. From one side, there is a relational database, where the data is represented in terms of tuples, grouped into relations, while in application we manipulate objects.

How to Generate Flask-SQLAlchemy Models Using Vertabelo

Flask is a web microframework for Python. It uses Flask-SQLAlchemy for object relational mapping. It is a Flask wrapper for SQLAlchemy – a powerful relational database framework that offers a high level ORM and low level access to a database’s native SQL functionality.For each database table, SQLAlchemy uses a regular Python class with attributes that match the columns of a corresponding database table. The database instance from Flask-SQLAlchemy provides a base class for models called

Visual Design of SQLAlchemy Models in 6 Steps

In this article I’m going to show you how to design SQLAlchemy models using Vertabelo , an online tool for visual database design, and our code generator.SQLAlchemy is propably the most advanced and well engineered OR/M for Python, while Vertabelo is a database design tool that works in a web browser. The Vertabelo code generator is an pythonic script called vertabelo-sqlalchemy . As you can see, the script is open source and hosted on
