package awspostgres

import "gocloud.dev/postgres/awspostgres"

Package awspostgres provides connections to AWS RDS PostgreSQL instances.


For postgres.Open, awspostgres registers for the scheme "awspostgres". The default URL opener will create a connection using the default credentials from the environment, as described in https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/session/. To customize the URL opener, or for more details on the URL format, see URLOpener.

See https://gocloud.dev/concepts/urls/ for background information.

ctx := context.Background()

db, err := postgres.Open(ctx,
if err != nil {
defer db.Close()

// Use database in your program.
db.ExecContext(ctx, "CREATE TABLE foo (bar INT);")
