Querying SQL (SQL Server, Oracle, PostgreSql, SQLite, & mySql) the PowerShell way: simple commands... powerful opportunities.

SimplySql is a module that provides an intuitive set of cmdlets for talking to databases that abstracts the vendor specifics, allowing you to focus on getting work done.

The basic pattern is to connect to a database, invoke one or more sql statements and then close your database connection. This module provides cmdlets that map to this basic pattern. Each Provider has its own 'Open-*Connection' cmdlet, but the remaining cmdlets are provider agnostic (MSSQL: Open-SqlConnection, Oracle: Open-OracleConnection, SQLite: Open-SQLiteConnection, etc). You can have multiple connections open, just distinguish them through the use of the -ConnectionName parameter on every command (if no ConnectionName is specified, it defaults to 'default').

    Open-*Connection -DataSource "SomeServer" -InitialCatalog "SomeDB"
    $data = Invoke-SqlQuery -query "SELECT * FROM someTable"

    #or using parameters
    $data = Invoke-SqlQuery -query "SELECT * FROM someTable WHERE someCol = @var" -Parameters @{var = 'a value'}
