Python: List the tables of given SQLite database file

Python SQLite Database: Exercise-4 with Solution

Write a Python program to list the tables of given SQLite database file.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import sqlite3
from sqlite3 import Error
def sql_connection():
   try:
     conn = sqlite3.connect('mydatabase.db')
     return conn
   except Error:
     print(Error)
 
def sql_table(conn):
   cursorObj = conn.cursor()
# Create two tables
   cursorObj.execute("CREATE TABLE agent_master(agent_code char(6),agent_name char(40),working_area char(35),commission decimal(10,2),phone_no char(15) NULL);")
   cursorObj.execute("CREATE TABLE temp_agent_master(agent_code char(6),agent_name char(40),working_area char(35),commission decimal(10,2),phone_no char(15) NULL);")
   print("List of tables:")
   cursorObj.execute("SELECT name FROM sqlite_master WHERE type='table';")
   print(cursorObj.fetchall())
   conn.commit()
sqllite_conn = sql_connection()
sql_table(sqllite_conn)
if (sqllite_conn):
 sqllite_conn.close()
 print("\nThe SQLite connection is closed.")

Sample Output:

List of tables:
[('agent_master',), ('temp_agent_master',)]

The SQLite connection is closed.

How to make a chain of function decorators?

from functools import wraps

def makebold(fn):
    @wraps(fn)
    def wrapped(*args, **kwargs):
        return "<b>" + fn(*args, **kwargs) + "</b>"
    return wrapped

def makeitalic(fn):
    @wraps(fn)
    def wrapped(*args, **kwargs):
        return "<i>" + fn(*args, **kwargs) + "</i>"
    return wrapped

@makebold
@makeitalic
def hello():
    return "hello world"

@makebold
@makeitalic
def log(s):
    return s

print hello()        # returns "<b><i>hello world</i></b>"
print hello.__name__ # with functools.wraps() this returns "hello"
print log('hello')   # returns "<b><i>hello</i></b>"
