D17 #100DaysOfCode: Databases + Python

Day 17 of my #100DaysOfCode, I’m diving into Python and databases.

Read Time1 Minute, 44 Seconds

After a couple of days of brain fog I am now on another project. This time I am creating an app that stores data into a backend database.

The data I’m storing is just based on cars, so like make, model and rego number. I then am able to search the database using my code for that rego number to see what car it’s assigned to.

For the database I am using SQLite, it’s pretty simple to setup, and I am also using DBeaver to just verify everything is working.

Below is a GIF of me adding a car, as well as using my code to pull it from the database.

I also have a few options in the code that allows you to create a new database or use the existing one. I still have a bit to clean up, but here is the code as it sits now.

import sqlite3

class Car():
    def __init__(self, make, model, rego):
        self.make = make
        self.model = model
        self.rego = rego
    def description(self):
        print(f"You have entered in the following: {self.make} {self.model} with the rego {self.rego}")

newCar = Car
createDB = input("Create new Database = n | Add to existing Database = A | Select from database = S").lower()
def main():
    if createDB == 'n':
    elif createDB == 'a':
        newCar.make = input("Please enter in the make: ")
        newCar.model = input("Please enter in the model: ")
        newCar.rego = input("Please enter in the rego: ")
    elif createDB == 's':
        selectRego = input("What rego do you want to look up?: ")
        conn = sqlite3.connect('carRego_db.sqlite')
        cur = conn.cursor()
        cur.execute(f'SELECT * FROM cars WHERE rego="{selectRego}"')
        data = cur.fetchall()

def database():
    conn = sqlite3.connect('carRego_db.sqlite')
    cur = conn.cursor()
    cur.execute(f'INSERT INTO cars (make, model, rego) values ("{newCar.make}", "{newCar.model}", "{newCar.rego}")')

def newDatabase():
    dbname = input("What is your databse called? ")
    conn = sqlite3.connect(f'{dbname}.sqlite')
    cur = conn.cursor()
    cur.execute(f'CREATE TABLE {dbname} (make VARCHAR, model VARCHAR, rego VARCHAR PRIMARY KEY)')
