At Long Last: v1.0.0 is here!¶
27 June 2022
It's been almost 2 years since I started Meerschaum, and the project has come an incredibly long way in that time. And now we've arrived at the culmination of all that hard work ― I have officially published v1.0.0: Mutable at Last!
For a full breakdown of features, check out the changelog, but here are some of the highlights:
- Mutable data
Meerschaum now handles mutable data! When rows with existing
idvalues are inserted, Meerschaum will issue an
MERGEquery to update your table.

- Data Type Enforcement
Data types are automatically inferred when a pipe is created, and all incoming dataframes will be cast to these types. You may also manually specify the data types for certain columns:

Interviewed with Console!¶

I was recently featured in Console #100, the weekly open source newsletter! I am so grateful to have been interviewed about the development process behind Meerschaum — check out the article linked above to read the story of how Meerschaum got its start.
New Video Series and Now Available for Consulting!¶
28 January 2022
Hello, World! There's a lot to cover, so I'll cut straight to the point: I've just started a new video series Learning Meerschaum, the show where I give viewers ways Meerschaum can make their lives as data analysts easier. In the first episode (embedded below), I walk through building a SQL pipe from the remote database Splitgraph. We also take a quick look at Grafana and how easy it is to use the integrated Grafana service.
I'm also ready to make the announcement: I am now officially open for consulting projects! Yes, you read that right ― you can hire me, the author of Meerschaum, to help you build your data streams! My rates are flexible, so if you're interested in recruiting my help, head over to my GitHub sponsors page and let's get started!
