vdsql is a new plugin that allows VisiData to connect to databases and query them directly, using the database’s own query engine. It uses Ibis to generate SQL for many popular backends, including Postgres, DuckDB, Clickhouse, and more.
vdsql v0.2, released this past week, is already quite useful, and development continues to improve both vdsql and VisiData for bigger data!
Saul Pwanson is the creator and maintainer of VisiData, a terminal interface for exploring and arranging tabular data. On this Maintainer Spotlight episode, Saul joins Jerod for a wide-ranging discussion on crossword puzzles, biographs, and Saul’s open source gift to the world. Thanks to AJ for the suggestion!
