example of SQLite using a local database file through SQLalchemy

Here's an example of SQLite using a local database file through SQLalchemy. The SQL statements are hidden from the user - that's the "Object to Relation Mapping" - although you can ask what's going on by runing my program with a -v option. ... example program source [here], seeding data download from [here].

We start by seeing if the database file exists:
  database = "stations.db"
  populated = os.path.exists(database)

So that we only have to populate the tables if they don't exist (we have a seeding data file).

Here's output from a typical run:
  WomanWithCat:flask grahamellis$ python orm_sqlite
  Station (code='MKM', postcode='SN12 8BN', footfall='23930', fullname='Melksham')
  (u'TEA', 8, u'Tees-Side Airport')
  (u'SPP', 12, u'Shippea Hill')
