athena - Convert database files to various formats


This documentation refers to athena version 0.2.6


Athena is a library to convert “database” files between various formats. It's accompanied by a corresponding executable that gives access to its converting features from the command-line. See Athena::Formats for the supported database formats and how you can add your own.


Athena has a plugin system that allows you to implement additional database formats and have them available easily. Just create a file athena_plugin.rb (Athena::PLUGIN_FILENAME) in your Gem's lib directory or any directory that's placed in $LOAD_PATH. See Athena::Formats on how to define custom formats.
