Snippet that initializes a DB with all the tables defined in a peewee ORM model... in this case "MariaModel". Add tables to the model at any point and the program should be able to set up the DB programmatically.
for t in [ name for name,c in \
inspect.getmembers(sys.modules[__name__],inspect.isclass) \
if issubclass(c, MariaModel) and not c is MariaModel]:
except Exception as e:
print e
You can’t perform that action at this time.
