Python: Insert values to a table from user input

Python SQLite Database: Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a Python program to insert values to a table from user input.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import  sqlite3
conn  =  sqlite3 . connect ( 'mydatabase.db' )
cursor  =  conn.cursor ()
#create the salesman table 
cursor.execute("CREATE TABLE salesman(salesman_id n(5), name char(30), city char(35), commission decimal(7,2));")

s_id = input('Salesman ID:')
s_name = input('Name:')
s_city = input('City:')
s_commision = input('Commission:')
INSERT INTO salesman(salesman_id, name, city, commission)
VALUES (?,?,?,?)
""", (s_id, s_name, s_city, s_commision))
conn.commit ()
print ( 'Data entered successfully.' )
conn . close ()
if (conn):
  print("\nThe SQLite connection is closed.")

Sample Output:

Salesman ID: 5
Name: Jhon Edin
City: New York
Commission: 5
Data entered successfully.

The SQLite connection is closed.

How to make a chain of function decorators?

from functools import wraps

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

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

def hello():
    return "hello world"

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>"
