AutoCode is a flexible tool to autogenerate a model from an existing database.

This is a slightly different approach to SqlSoup, that lets you use tables without explicitly defining them.

Call sqlautocode.py --help for a list of available self explaining options.

Example: sqlautocode.py -o model.py -u postgres://postgres:user@password/MyDatabase -s myschema -t Person*,Download


  • Generate ActiveMapper / Elixir model

Notes (random):

ATT: sqlautocode currently does not handle function indexes well. It generates code not understood by sqlalchemy.
