Convert SQLAlchemy DB Model into entity relationship diagram using Python

Here is my requirements.txt for the project.


If the graphviz package was not installed, we have to install it globally. Installing the graphviz package as a project package does not work for me.

sudo apt install graphviz

Here is the Python script to generate diagrams.

from sqlalchemy_schemadisplay import create_schema_graph
from sqlalchemy import MetaData

graph = create_schema_graph(metadata=MetaData('postgresql://db_user_name:db_user_password@db_host_name/db_name'))
