By default, unihan-db creates an SQLite database in an XDG data directory. You can specify a custom database destination by passing a database url into get_session.

Example usage:

#!/usr/bin/env python
# -*- coding: utf8 - *-
from __future__ import unicode_literals

import pprint

from sqlalchemy.sql.expression import func

from unihan_db import bootstrap
from unihan_db.tables import Unhn

session = bootstrap.get_session()

bootstrap.bootstrap_unihan(session)

random_row = session.query(Unhn).order_by(
    func.random()
).limit(1).first()

pp = pprint.PrettyPrinter(indent=0)

pp.pprint(random_row.to_dict())

Run:

$ ./examples/01_bootstrap.py
