butterdb is a library to help you work with Google Spreadsheet data. It lets you model your data as Python objects, to be easily manipulated or created.

How do I use it?

::

import butterdb
import json

# For getting OAuth Credential JSON file see http://gspread.readthedocs.org/en/latest/oauth2.html
# Ensure that the client_email has been granted privileges to any workbooks you wish to access.

with open('SomeGoogleProject-2a31d827b2a9.json') as credentials_file:
json_key = json.load(credentials_file)

client_email = json_key['client_email']
private_key = str(json_key['private_key']).encode('utf-8')

database = butterdb.Database(name="MyDatabaseSheet", client_email=client_email, private_key=private_key)

@butterdb.register(database)
class User(butterdb.Model):
def __init__(self, name, password):
self.name = self.field(name)
self.password = self.field(password)

users = User.get_instances()

marianne = users[1]

print(marianne.password) # rainbow_trout

marianne.password = "hunter2"
marianne.commit()


How do I make instances?
=================

::

bob = User("bob", "BestPassword!")
bob.commit()


Where do I get it?
------------

``pip install butterdb``

Simple as that?
---------------
Yep! butterdb is a simple interface around `gspread`_. Just .commit() your objects when you want to update the spreadsheet!

How do I run the tests?
-----
`nosetests`

What works?
----------
* Store data in Google Spreadsheets (the cloud!!!)
* Models from classes
* Fields as attributes. decimals, ints and strings only (as far as I know)
* Commits
* Mocked unit tests, mock database
* Arbitrary cell execution with `=blah()` (free stored procedures?)
* Auto backup/bad patch control

What's missing?
---------------
* Spreadsheets must exist before connecting
* References
* Collections
* Customizable fields
* Customizable table size (arbitrarily hardcoded)
