I am beginning to enjoy Julia and actually succeeded in doing some useful stuff as I learn the language.
I was hoping to replace what I am presently doing in Python with Julia. But I do a lot of database work and needs to be able to work with a complex database. While I have can presently communicate with PostgreSQL using a fork of PostgreSQL.jl (https://github.com/swt30/PostgreSQL.jl.git - thanks for that) but the communication is limited to such an extend that it becomes a showstopper. If I cannot get something working in the next few weeks, I will have to develop my new code in Python again…
Unfortunately my knowledge of the libpq-api (and Julia) is too limited to really contribute to the code. Somebody posted a SQLAlchemy wrapper, but that is a no-go to me. I don’t even use it in Python.
ODBC is also very limited and slow.
It would be wonderful if we can have a libpq-interface in Julia that can capitalize on the full functionality of PostgreSQL. Second price would be to have something like psycopg2 in Julia.
