csvgenpy - Import any CSV into InterSystems IRIS Using Embedded Python!

Hi folks!

Just want to introduce you a new util to import CSV into IRIS - csvgenpy!


USER>zpm "install csvgenpy"


do ##class(shvarov.csvgenpy.csv).Generate("file or url","table","schema")


USER>do ##class(shvarov.csvgenpy.csv).Generate("","titanic","data")

This will create table and class data.titanic in IRIS and will load the data.  you can proof it with:


[SQL]USER>>select * from data.titanic

[SQL]USER>>select * from data.titanic

1. select * from data.titanic

So that's it!

Basically it does the same thing as csvgen does, but uses python library sqlalchemy which works because of embedded python and sqlalchemy-iris by @Dmitry Maslennikov 

P.S. csvgenpy can import some "complicated" for csvgen csv as this one. Basically it can import any kind of csv.

Feedback and Pull requests are very welcome!
