Package (v1.0.0)

Package pgxv4 provides an AlloyDB driver that uses pgx v4 and works with the database/sql package.


func RegisterDriver

func RegisterDriver(name string, opts ...alloydbconn.Option) (func() error, error)

RegisterDriver registers a Postgres driver that uses the alloydbconn.Dialer configured with the provided options. The choice of name is entirely up to the caller and may be used to distinguish between multiple registrations of differently configured Dialers. The driver uses pgx/v4 internally. RegisterDriver returns a cleanup function that should be called one the database connection is no longer needed.

	defer db.Close()
