107914493 2020-10-09 The key new feature in this release is the **column actions** menu on the table page ([#891]( This can be used to sort a column in ascending or descending order, facet data by that column or filter the table to just rows that have a value for that column. Plugin authors can use the new [datasette.client]( object to make internal HTTP requests from their plugins, allowing them to make use of Datasette's JSON API. ([#943]( New [Deploying Datasette]( documentation with guides for deploying Datasette on a Linux server [using systemd]( or to hosting providers [that support buildpacks]( ([#514](, [#997]( Other improvements in this release: - [Publishing to Google Cloud Run]( documentation now covers Google Cloud SDK options. Thanks, Geoffrey Hing. ([#995]( - New `datasette -o` option which opens your browser as soon as Datasette starts up. ([#970]( - Datasette now sets `sqlite3.enable_callback_tracebacks(True)` so that errors in custom SQL functions will display tracebacks. ([#891]( - Fixed two rendering bugs with column headers in portrait mobile view. ([#978](, [#980]( - New `db.table_column_details(table)` introspection method for retrieving full details of the columns in a specific table, see [Database introspection](https://do… 2020-10-09T17:58:27Z ["asgi", "automatic-api", "csv", "datasets", "datasette", "datasette-io", "docker", "json", "python", "sql", "sqlite"]
107914493 2020-10-06 - Column action menu now shows the column type. ([#993]( - Column action sort links now correctly link to the first page of sorted results. ([#989]( - [Publishing to Google Cloud Run]( documentation now covers Google Cloud SDK options. Thanks, Geoffrey Hing. ([#995]( 2020-10-06T20:52:49Z ["asgi", "automatic-api", "csv", "datasets", "datasette", "datasette-io", "docker", "json", "python", "sql", "sqlite"]

140912432 2020-09-24 - `table.extract()` and `sqlite-utils extract` now apply much, much faster - one example operation reduced from twelve minutes to just four seconds! ([#172]( - `sqlite-utils extract` no longer shows a progress bar, because it's fast enough not to need one. - New `column_order=` option for `table.transform()` which can be used to alter the order of columns in a table. ([#175]( - `sqlite-utils transform --column-order=` option (with a `-o` shortcut) for changing column order. ([#176]( - The `table.transform(drop_foreign_keys=)` parameter and the `sqlite-utils transform --drop-foreign-key` option have changed. They now accept just the name of the column rather than requiring all three of the column, other table and other column. This is technically a backwards-incompatible change but I chose not to bump the major version number because the transform feature is so new. ([#177]( - The table `.disable_fts()`, `.rebuild_fts()`, `.delete()`, `.delete_where()` and `.add_missing_columns()` methods all now `return self`, which means they can be chained together with other table operations. 2020-09-24T16:45:44Z ["cli", "click", "datasette", "datasette-io", "python", "sqlite", "sqlite-database"]
140912432 2020-09-23 This release introduces two key new capabilities: **transform** ([#114]( and **extract** ([#42]( ### Transform SQLite's ALTER TABLE has [several documented limitations]( The `table.transform()` Python method and `sqlite-utils transform` CLI command work around these limitations using a pattern where a new table with the desired structure is created, data is copied over to it and the old table is then dropped and replaced by the new one. You can use these tools to drop columns, change column types, rename columns, add and remove `NOT NULL` and defaults, remove foreign key constraints and more. See the [transforming tables (CLI)]( and [transforming tables (Python library)]( documentation for full details of how to use them. ### Extract Sometimes a database table - especially one imported from a CSV file - will contain duplicate data. A `Trees` table may include a `Species` column with only a few dozen unique values, when the table itself contains thousands of rows. The `table.extract()` method and `sqlite-utils extract` commands can extract a column - or multiple columns - out into a separate lookup table, and set up a foreign key relationship from the original table. The Python library [extract() documentation]( describes how extraction works in detail, and [Extracting columns into a separate table]( in the CLI documentation includes a detailed example. ### Other changes - The `@db.register_function` decorator can be used to quickly register Python functions as custom SQL functions, see [Registering custom SQL functions](https://sqlite-utils.rea… 2020-09-23T00:37:01Z ["cli", "click", "datasette", "datasette-io", "python", "sqlite", "sqlite-database"]

107914493 2020-07-01 Magic parameters for canned queries, a log out feature, improved plugin documentation and four new plugin hooks. ### Magic parameters for canned queries Canned queries now support [Magic parameters](, which can be used to insert or select automatically generated values. For example: ```sql insert into logs (user_id, timestamp) values (:_actor_id, :_now_datetime_utc) ``` This inserts the currently authenticated actor ID and the current datetime. ([#842]( ### Log out The [ds_actor cookie]( can be used by plugins (or by Datasette's [--root mechanism]( to authenticate users. The new `/-/logout` page provides a way to clear that cookie. A "Log out" button now shows in the global navigation provided the user is authenticated using the `ds_actor` cookie. ([#840]( ### Better plugin documentation The plugin documentation has been re-arranged into four sections, including a brand new section on testing plugins. ([#687]( - [Plugins]( introduces Datasette's plugin system and describes how to install and configure plugins. - [Writing plugins]( describes how to author plugins, from simple one-off plugins to packaged plugins that can be published to PyPI. It also describes how to start a plugin using the new [datasette-plugin]( cookiecutter template. - [Plugin hooks]( is a full list of detailed documentation for every Datasette plugin hook. - [Testing plugins](https://… 2020-07-01T21:46:07Z ["asgi", "automatic-api", "csv", "datasets", "datasette", "datasette-io", "docker", "json", "python", "sql", "sqlite"]

107914493 2020-05-28 The main focus of this release is a major upgrade to the [register_output_renderer(datasette)]( plugin hook, which allows plugins to provide new output formats for Datasette such as [datasette-atom]( and [datasette-ics]( - Redesign of [register_output_renderer(datasette)]( to provide more context to the render callback and support an optional `"can_render"` callback that controls if a suggested link to the output format is provided. ([#581](, [#770]( - Visually distinguish float and integer columns - useful for figuring out why order-by-column might be returning unexpected results. ([#729]( - The [Request object](, which is passed to several plugin hooks, is now documented. ([#706]( - New `metadata.json` option for setting a custom default page size for specific tables and views, see [Setting a custom page size]( ([#751]( - Canned queries can now be configured with a default URL fragment hash, useful when working with plugins such as [datasette-vega](, see [Setting a default fragment]( ([#706]( - Fixed a bug in `datasette publish` when running on operating systems where the `/tmp` directory lives in a different volume, using a backport of the Python 3.8 `shutil.copytree()` func… 2020-05-28T14:39:18Z ["asgi", "automatic-api", "csv", "datasets", "datasette", "datasette-io", "docker", "json", "python", "sql", "sqlite"]

See #685. * Added documentation for `db.execute()`, see [await db.execute(sql, ...)]( * Renamed `db.execute_against_connection_in_thread()` to `db.execute_fn()` and made it a documented method, see [await db.execute_fn(fn)]( * New `results.first()` and `results.single_value()` methods, plus documentation for the `Results` class - see [Results]( 2020-05-08T17:56:36Z ["asgi", "automatic-api", "csv", "datasets", "datasette", "datasette-io", "docker", "json", "python", "sql", "sqlite"]
107914493 2020-05-06 You can now create [custom pages]( within your Datasette instance using a custom template file. For example, adding a template file called `templates/pages/about.html` will result in a new page being served at `/about` on your instance. See the [custom pages documentation]( for full details, including how to return custom HTTP headers, redirects and status codes. (#648) [Configuration directory mode]( (#731) allows you to define a custom Datasette instance as a directory. So instead of running the following: $ datasette one.db two.db \ --metadata.json \ --template-dir=templates/ \ --plugins-dir=plugins \ --static css:css You can instead arrange your files in a single directory called `my-project` and run this: $ datasette my-project/ Also in this release: - New `NOT LIKE` table filter: `?colname__notlike=expression`. (#750) - Datasette now has a *pattern portfolio* at `/-/patterns` - e.g. <>. This is a page that shows every Datasette user interface component in one place, to aid core development and people building custom CSS themes. (#151) - SQLite [PRAGMA functions]( such as `pragma_table_info(tablename)` are now allowed in Datasette SQL queries. (#761) - Datasette pages now consistently return a `content-type` of `text/html; charset=utf-8"`.
