Quick Examples

Setup Connection

var connection = new SqlConnection("...");
var compiler = new SqlCompiler();

var db = new QueryFactory(connection, compiler)

QueryFactory is provided by the SqlKata.Execution package.

Retrieve all records

var books = db.Query("Books").Get();

Retrieve published books only

var books = db.Query("Books").WhereTrue("IsPublished").Get();

Retrieve one book

var introToSql = db.Query("Books").Where("Id", 145).Where("Lang", "en").First();

Retrieve recent books: last 10

var recent = db.Query("Books").OrderByDesc("PublishedAt").Limit(10).Get();

Include Author information

var books = db.Query("Books")
    .Include(db.Query("Authors")) // Assumes that the Books table have a `AuthorId` column
    .Get();

This will include the property "Author" on each "Book"

[{
    "Id": 1,
    "PublishedAt": "2019-01-01",
    "AuthorId": 2,
    "Author": { // <-- included property
        "Id": 2,
        "...": ""
    }
}]

Join with authors table

var books = db.Query("Books")
    .Join("Authors", "Authors.Id", "Books.AuthorId")
    .Select("Books.*", "Authors.Name as AuthorName")
    .Get();

foreach(var book in books)
{
    Console.WriteLine($"{book.Title}: {book.AuthorName}");
}

Conditional queries

var isFriday = DateTime.Today.DayOfWeek == DayOfWeek.Friday;

var books = db.Query("Books")
    .When(isFriday, q => q.WhereIn("Category", new [] {"OpenSource", "MachineLearning"}))
    .Get();

Pagination

var page1 = db.Query("Books").Paginate(10);

foreach(var book in page1.List)
{
    Console.WriteLine(book.Name);
}

...

var page2 = page1.Next();

Insert

int affected = db.Query("Users").Insert(new {
    Name = "Jane",
    CountryId = 1
});

Update

int affected = db.Query("Users").Where("Id", 1).Update(new {
    Name = "Jane",
    CountryId = 1
});

Delete

int affected = db.Query("Users").Where("Id", 1).Delete();
