football-to-psql gem - load / read football.txt match datafiles (e.g. English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga, etc.) into a postgreSQL database

Hello,

    inspired by the football-to-sqlite tool [1] I have put together
the big brother / sister football-to-psql [2] tool that - surprise,
surprise - lets you load / read football.txt match datafiles (e.g.
English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga 2020/21,
etc.) into a postgreSQL database.

Usage. Try:

$ football-to-psql --help

printing:

Usage: football-to-psql [options] DATABASE PATHS...
    -u, --username USERNAME     database username (default: postgres)
    -p, --password PASSWORD     database password (default: postgres)
    -h, --host HOST             database host     (default: localhost)

Run this tool against match files in the Football.TXT format like so:

$ football-to-psql england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt

or pass in more than one match file:

$ football-to-psql england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt \
                              2020-21\2-championship.txt  \
                              2020-21\3-league1.txt       \
                              2020-21\4-league2.txt       \
                              2020-21\5-nationalleague.txt

Note: If the PostgreSQL database (and its tables, views &
indices) do not (yet) exist, they get auto-created on the first run.

Note: You can use football2psq as an alias / alternate name.

**Pipes & Standard Input (STDIN)**

You can use any command line tool to download match files and pipe
(via stdin) into this tool like so:

$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openfootball/world-cup/master/2018--russia/cup.txt
> football-to-psql worldcup.db

That's it for now. Enjoy the beautiful game with ruby (and
postgreSQL). Cheers. Prost.
