API to help make public data easier to access. Idea started with need for King County, WA COVID-19 data in API format while only having an excel file for source data.
I am using Postgresql for the datastore due to what I read about concurrancy over mysql, figured that would be good for an API. During development using a container on my machine.
docker run --rm --name pg-docker -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=postgres -d -p 5432:5432 -v $HOME/docker/volumes/postgres:/var/lib/postgresql/data postgres:11
You can use this command to connect to the postgresql instance in the container.
docker ps # to find the CONTAINER ID docker exec -it 05b3a3471f6f bash
Project is using Python 3.7
In the project we use pipenv when developing.
pipenv install && pipenv shell
