What is CoginitiScript

CoginitiScript is a set of blocks, where each block represent source code and language. Similar to Paragraphs in the notebook. Each block is defined using the following syntax:

#+src language name([arg=val...])
#+begin
  ... source code here
#+end

Source code outside given blocks are treated as default SQL block. For example, following source code:

SELECT 1;
SELECT 2;

#+src sql foo()
#+begin
   SELECT 3;
#+end

SELECT * FROM ${foo()};

Will be represented as 3 blocks:

  • SQLBlock with “SELECT 1” and “SELECT 2” as a source code
  • SQLBlock “foo” with correspondent source code
  • SQLBlock with “SELECT ${foo()}” as source code

Alternatively, the same script could be written as:

#+src sql
#+begin
   SELECT 1;
   SELECT 2;
#+end

#+src sql foo()
#+begin
   SELECT 3;
#+end

#+src sql
#+begin
   SELECT * FROM ${foo()};
#+end

User will be able to configure what type of default block is used.

This reveals the interesting characteristic of CoginitiScript:

- any SQL file is a valid CoginitiScript file
- any Python file is a valid CoginitiScript file
- any [language we support] file is a valid CoginitiScript file
