Package gocqlx is an idiomatic extension to gocql that provides usability features. With gocqlx you can bind the query parameters from maps and structs, use named query parameters (:identifier) and scan the query results into structs and slices. It comes with a fluent and flexible CQL query builder and a database migrations module.

Installation

go get -u github.com/scylladb/gocqlx

Features

  • Binding query parameters form struct or map
  • Scanning results directly into struct or slice
  • CQL query builder (package qb)
  • Super simple CRUD operations based on table model (package table)
  • Database migrations (package migrate)
  • Fast!

Example

// Person represents a row in person table.
// Field names are converted to camel case by default, no need to add special tags.
// If you want to disable a field add `db:"-"` tag, it will not be persisted.
type Person struct {
    FirstName string
    LastName  string
    Email     []string
}
// Insert, bind data from struct.
{
    stmt, names := qb.Insert("gocqlx_test.person").Columns("first_name", "last_name", "email").ToCql()
    q := gocqlx.Query(session.Query(stmt), names).BindStruct(p)
    if err := q.ExecRelease(); err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }
}
// Get first result into a struct.
{
    var p Person
    stmt, names := qb.Select("gocqlx_test.person").Where(qb.Eq("first_name")).ToCql()
    q := gocqlx.Query(session.Query(stmt), names).BindMap(qb.M{
        "first_name": "Patricia",
    })
    if err := q.GetRelease(&p); err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }
}
// Load all the results into a slice.
{
    var people []Person
    stmt, names := qb.Select("gocqlx_test.person").Where(qb.In("first_name")).ToCql()
    q := gocqlx.Query(session.Query(stmt), names).BindMap(qb.M{
        "first_name": []string{"Patricia", "Igy", "Ian"},
    })
    if err := q.SelectRelease(&people); err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }
}
// metadata specifies table name and columns it must be in sync with schema.
var personMetadata = table.Metadata{
    Name:    "person",
    Columns: []string{"first_name", "last_name", "email"},
    PartKey: []string{"first_name"},
    SortKey: []string{"last_name"},
}
// personTable allows for simple CRUD operations based on personMetadata.
var personTable = table.New(personMetadata)
// Get by primary key.
{
    p := Person{
        "Patricia",
        "Citizen",
        nil, // no email
    }
    stmt, names := personTable.Get() // you can filter columns too
    q := gocqlx.Query(session.Query(stmt), names).BindStruct(p)
    if err := q.GetRelease(&p); err != nil {
        t.Fatal(err)
    }
}
