Create a media calendar in PostgreSQL

July 1st, 2014 · PostgreSQL

Here’s a quick snippet that I wrote because I needed a media calendar that covers the time period of most living people. Hopes this helps keep somebody from typing this up themselves.

CREATE TABLE calendar (id bigserial primary key,
gregorian_date date not null,
 long_date text,
  day_of_week text,
  day_in_week smallint,
  day_number_in_month smallint,
  day_number_in_year smallint,
  last_day_in_week boolean,
  last_day_in_month boolean,
  week_ending_day date,
  month_ending_day date,
  week_in_month smallint,
  week_in_year smallint,
  month_name text,
  month_number smallint,
  year_month text,
  quarter text,
  year_quarter text,
  year_number smallint,
  roman_year text,
  roman_month text,
  roman_day text,
  load_date timestamp with time zone NOT NULL DEFAULT now())
  ;

COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.last_day_in_week IS 'Is this the last day of the week';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.last_day_in_month IS 'Is this the last day of the month';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.week_ending_day IS 'What is the date of Saturday in this week';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.month_ending_day IS 'Is this the last day of the week (saturday)';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.week_in_month IS 'Numeric position of the week in the month';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.week_in_year IS 'Numeric position of the week in the year';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.month_name IS 'Text name of the month';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.month_number IS 'Numeric value of the month in year';
COMMENT ON COLUMN calendar.year_month IS 'YYYY-MM formatted';
