Python Module

The sources for the SQL parser and formatter module are hosted on Github. To clone the repository run:

git clone

Visit the project page | API Documentation

Some relevant parts of the Python module contain code from the pygments syntax highlighter. The underlying Python module uses a non-validating SQL parser. This approach makes it possible to parse even syntactically incorrect SQL statements.

Currently the parser module is used by CrunchyFrog - a database front-end for Gnome.

The sqlparse module is released under the terms of the New BSD License.
