Turn SELECT queries returned by a query into links to execute them

Installation

Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

$ datasette install datasette-query-links

Usage

This is an experimental plugin, requiring Datasette 0.59a1 or higher.

Any SQL query that returns a value that itself looks like a valid SQL query will be converted into a link to execute that SQL query when it is displayed in the Datasette interface.

These links will only show for valid SQL query - if a SQL query would return an error it will not be turned into a link.

Demo
