class pyiron.base.database.generic.DatabaseAccess(connection_string, table_name)[source]

Bases: object

A core element of PyIron, which generally deals with accessing the database: getting, sending, changing some data to the db.

Parameters
  • connection_string (str) – SQLalchemy connection string which specifies the database to connect to typical form: dialect+driver://username:password@host:port/database example: ‘postgresql://scott:tiger@cmcent56.mpie.de/mdb’

  • table_name (str) – database table name, a simple string like: ‘simulation’

add_column(col_name, col_type)[source]

Add an additional column - required for modification on the database

Parameters
  • col_name (str, list) – name of the new column, normal string like: ‘myColumn’

  • (str, list (col_type) – SQL type of the new column, SQL type like: ‘varchar(50)’

Returns:

add_item_dict(par_dict)[source]

Create a new database item

Parameters

par_dict (dict) –

Dictionary with the item values and column names as keys, like:

{‘chemicalformula’: ‘BO’,

’computer’: ‘localhost’, ‘hamilton’: ‘VAMPS’, ‘hamversion’: ‘1.1’, ‘job’: ‘testing’, ‘subjob’ : ‘SubJob’, ‘parentid’: 0L, ‘myCol’: ‘Blubbablub’, ‘project’: ‘database.testing’, ‘projectpath’: ‘/root/directory/tmp’, ‘status’: ‘KAAAA’, ‘timestart’: datetime(2016, 5, 2, 11, 31, 4, 253377), ‘timestop’: datetime(2016, 5, 2, 11, 31, 4, 371165), ‘totalcputime’: 0.117788, ‘username’: ‘Test’}

Returns

Database ID of the item created as an int, like: 3

Return type

int

change_column_type(col_name, col_type)[source]

Modify data type of an existing column - required for modification on the database

Parameters
  • col_name (str, list) – name of the new column, normal string like: ‘myColumn’

  • (str, list (col_type) – SQL type of the new column, SQL type like: ‘varchar(50)’

Returns:

delete_item(item_id)[source]

Delete Item from database

Parameters

item_id (int) – Databse Item ID (Integer), like: 38

Returns:

get_item_by_id(item_id)[source]

Get item from database by searching for a specific item Id.

Parameters

item_id (int) – Databse Item ID (Integer), like: 38

Returns

Dictionary where the key is the column name, like:
{‘chemicalformula’: u’BO’,

’computer’: u’localhost’, ‘hamilton’: u’VAMPS’, ‘hamversion’: u’1.1’, ‘id’: 1, ‘job’: u’testing’, ‘masterid’: None, ‘parentid’: 0, ‘project’: u’database.testing’, ‘projectpath’: u’/root/directory/tmp’, ‘status’: u’KAAAA’, ‘subjob’: u’SubJob’, ‘timestart’: datetime.datetime(2016, 5, 2, 11, 31, 4, 253377), ‘timestop’: datetime.datetime(2016, 5, 2, 11, 31, 4, 371165), ‘totalcputime’: 0.117788, ‘username’: u’Test’}

Return type

dict

get_items_dict(item_dict, return_all_columns=True)[source]
Parameters
  • item_dict (dict) –

    a dict type, which has a certain syntax for this function: a normal dict like {‘hamilton’: ‘VAMPE’, ‘hamversion’: ‘1.1’} has similarities with a simple query like

    select * from table_name where hamilton = ‘VAMPE AND hamversion = ‘1.1’

    as seen it puts an AND for every key, value combination in the dict and searches for it.

    another syntax is for an OR statement, simply: {‘hamilton’: [‘VAMPE’, ‘LAMMPS’]}, the query would be:

    select * from table_name where hamilton = ‘VAMPE’ OR hamilton = ‘LAMMPS’

    and lastly for a LIKE statement, simply: {‘project’: ‘database.%’}, the query would be

    select * from table_name where project LIKE ‘database.%’

    that means you can simply add the syntax for a like statement like ‘%’ and it will automatically operate a like-search

    of course you can also use a more complex select method, with everything in use:
    {‘hamilton’: [‘VAMPE’, ‘LAMMPS’],

    ’project’: ‘databse%’, ‘hamversion’: ‘1.1’}

    select * from table_name where (hamilton = ‘VAMPE’ Or hamilton = ‘LAMMPS’) AND

    (project LIKE ‘database%’) AND hamversion = ‘1.1’

  • return_all_columns (bool) – return all columns or only the ‘id’ - still the format stays the same.

Returns

the function returns a list of dicts like get_items_sql, but it does not format datetime:
[{‘chemicalformula’: u’Ni108’,

’computer’: u’mapc157’, ‘hamilton’: u’LAMMPS’, ‘hamversion’: u’1.1’, ‘id’: 24, ‘job’: u’DOF_1_0’, ‘parentid’: 21L, ‘project’: u’lammps.phonons.Ni_fcc’, ‘projectpath’: u’D:/PyIron/PyIron_data/projects’, ‘status’: u’finished’, ‘timestart’: datetime.datetime(2016, 6, 24, 10, 17, 3, 140000), ‘timestop’: datetime.datetime(2016, 6, 24, 10, 17, 3, 173000), ‘totalcputime’: 0.033, ‘username’: u’test’},

{‘chemicalformula’: u’Ni108’,

’computer’: u’mapc157’, ‘hamilton’: u’LAMMPS’, ‘hamversion’: u’1.1’, ‘id’: 21, ‘job’: u’ref’, ‘parentid’: 20L, ‘project’: u’lammps.phonons.Ni_fcc’, ‘projectpath’: u’D:/PyIron/PyIron_data/projects’, ‘status’: u’finished’, ‘timestart’: datetime.datetime(2016, 6, 24, 10, 17, 2, 429000), ‘timestop’: datetime.datetime(2016, 6, 24, 10, 17, 2, 463000), ‘totalcputime’: 0.034, ‘username’: u’test’},…….]
