Queries: PostgreSQL Simplified¶
Queries is a BSD licensed opinionated wrapper of the psycopg2 library for interacting with PostgreSQL.

- Connection information provided by URI
- Query results delivered as a generator based iterators
- Automatically registered data-type support for UUIDs, Unicode and Unicode Arrays
- Ability to directly access psycopg2
