EZQL ask your database questions using natural language.


EZQL democratizes the access to data by allowing anybody to ask their database questions. Historically it's been embedded within Outerbase but we've got a lot of asks to make it accessible wherever so we decided to open-source it.

⚡️ Before you get started

Follow these steps to have a successful experience using EZQL:

  1. Create an account on Outerbase
  2. Attach the database you want to use
  3. Reach out to us for beta access
  4. Generate your EZQL token

🚀 Quick Start

npm add ezql
yarn add ezql

Usage (TypeScript/ESM)

import { Prompt, EZQL } from 'ezql'

const token = 'arbitrary-placeholder-value'
const ez = new EZQL({ token })
const phrase = 'What is the answer to life, the univerise and everything?'

const response = await ez.prompt(phrase, Prompt.sql)
/* "SELECT answer FROM ultimate_question;" */

const response = await ez.prompt(phrase, Prompt.data)
/* [{ "value": 42 }] */

Usage (Node.JS/CJS)

const { Prompt, EZQL } = require('ezql')

// the remainder is identical to TypeScript usage (see above)

Usage (Web/UMD)

Use our hosted file or save a local copy.

<script src="https://outerbase.github.io/ezql/bundle.js"></script>
  // A global variable `Outerbase` is now exposed

  const token = 'arbitrary-placeholder-value'
  const ez = new Outerbase.EZQL({ token })
  const phrase = 'What is the answer to life, the univerise and everything?'

  ez.prompt(phrase, Outerbase.Prompt.sql).then((sqlText) => console.log(sqlText))
  /* "SELECT answer FROM ultimate_question;" */

  ez.prompt(phrase, Outerbase.Prompt.data).then((data) => console.log(data))
  /* [{ "value": 42 }] */

Custom API Endpoint

You may customize the API endpoint by

  • passing host to the constructor
