taoPQ is a light-weight C++ client library for accessing a PostgreSQL database, providing a modern wrapper for

libpq
. It has no dependencies beyond a C++17 compatible compiler and the PostgreSQL
libpq
client library.

Introduction

This library provides classes for database connections and transactions, as well as connection pools and table writers. It also supports for prepared statements and nested transaction. An extensible traits mechanism is used to convert C++ types into SQL statement parameters, and conversely to convert query results into arbitrary C++ types. The following example shows the basic look and feel of the library.

#include 
#include 

#include

int main() { // Open connection const auto conn = tao::pq::connection::create( "dbname=template1" );

// Execute SQL statement conn->execute( "DROP TABLE IF EXISTS taopq_example" ); conn->execute( "CREATE TABLE taopq_example ( a INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, b INTEGER, c TEXT NOT NULL )" );

// Prepare statement conn->prepare( "my_stmt", "INSERT INTO taopq_example VALUES ( $1, $2, $3 )" );

{ // Begin transaction const auto tr = conn->transaction();

// Execute statement with parameters
tr->execute( "INSERT INTO taopq_example VALUES ( $1, $2, $3 )", 1, 42, "foo" );

// Execute previously prepared statement with parameters (recommended)
tr->execute( "my_stmt", 2, tao::pq::null, "Hello, world!" );

// Commit transaction
tr->commit();

}

// insert/update/delete statements return an object that contains the number of rows affected { const auto res = conn->execute( "insert", 3, 3, "drei" ); assert( res.rows_affected() == 1 ); }

// Queries return object with result set const auto res = conn->execute( "SELECT * FROM taopq_example" ); assert( res.size() == 3 );

// Conveniently convert result into C++ container const auto v = res.vector< std::tuple< int, std::optional< int >, std::string > >(); }
