Set User Credentials

Edit creds.json to reflect your mysql user and password

This must be done prior to executing the following cell

In general, you will be able to choose whether you are using the remote MySQL database or the SQLite database(s) by setting the dbsource variable to "mysql" or "sqlite" respectively. The function dbutil.db_cstring function computes a connection string for the chosen dbsource using the information in the creds.json file. If the last argument to this function is present, the generated connection string uses that datbase as superceding the name of the database in creds.json.

In [2]:
dbsource = "sqlite"
db = "school"
cstring = dbutil.db_cstring(dbsource, "creds.json", ".", db)
In [3]:
print("Connection string:", cstring)
Connection string: sqlite:///../../dbfiles/school.db
In [4]:
%sql $cstring
