A client for Quill databases

Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Tables is a command-line program for accessing Quill databases. It supports an English-like argument structure, typed Elements, truly whitespace independant parsing, and some advanced composite functions.

Argument rundown

Tables [filename] get x from y

Tables [filename] get x

Tables [filename] add x as y

Tables [filename] add x to y as z

Tables [filename] remove x from y

Tables [filename] remove x

Tables [filename] change x in y to z

Tables [filename] map x to y as z

Tables [filename] combine x with y as z

Tables [filename] file x

Tables [filename] list

Tables [filename] x and y and...

Tables [filename] repl

Table syntax

The actual flat file has a somewhat human readable syntax. Here is a file showing all possible use cases:

table(tableName){`preserve whitespace`:val;key1:val1;}
list(listName){a;b;c} /* I'm a comment! */

Sales pitch

Tables is relatively safe (it won't delete its own file anymore, and probably won't burn your house down). It is built upon a rock-solid library (Cookbook) and a slightly-less rock-solid concept. The Haskell type system makes the base Quill library safe in regards to unexpected behavior, although there are some errors that Tables cannot recover from.
