Command Line Tool

Command Line ToolΒΆ

It is also possible to run a small CLI tool for testing out some SQL commands quickly.

You can either call the CLI tool (after installation) directly


or by running these lines of code

from dask_sql import cmd_loop


Some options can be set, e.g. to preload some testdata. Have a look into cmd_loop() or call

dask-sql --help

Of course, it is also possible to call the usual CREATE TABLE commands.

Very similar as described in SQL Server, it is possible to preregister your own data sources or choose a dask scheduler to connect to.
