Given a DATABASE_URL, it should be dead simple to connect to a Heroku postgres database. This crate makes it dead simple: You pass a DATABASE_URL to the postgres_client function and get a working client back.
The reason I found the work to create this crate necessary is that connecting to Heroku has 2 quirks.
- On the one hand, it requires that we have a secure connection.
- On the other hand, it uses self-verified certificates. So we have to enable Ssl, but turn off verification.
A synchronous PostgreSQL client.
