Tools for tailing your database


Install this plugin in the same environment as Datasette.

datasette install datasette-tail


This plugin provides a simple debugging tool. Visit /dbname/-/tail to see a JSON representation of changes to your database. The first time you visit that page it will represent everything in the specified database. Refreshing the page will show any changes since the last time you loaded that page.

Use /dbname/-/tail.json to get the raw JSON.

The plugin obeys the view-database permission.

python3 -m venv venv
source venv/bin/activate
