I am looking for a command line SQL formatter = SQL prettifier = SQL beautifier (offline, not an online formatter) for Mac. The goal is to run it on the command line and also inside the editor (Emacs) for SQL files under a few thousand lines.

Prettier integrates with editors and Git, has a command-line interface, and a SQL plugin.

Try out sqlformat, shipped with sqlparse Python library. The easiest way to install it is using pipx:

pipx install sqlparse

Here is an example of running it:

$ echo "sElECt address,country,fName FrOm tbl_Name Where f1=true aNd fname iS nOt null oRdEr bY fName aSc" \
   | sqlformat - --reindent --keywords upper
SELECT address,
       country,
       fName
FROM tbl_Name
WHERE f1=TRUE
  AND fname IS NOT NULL
ORDER BY fName ASC

To run it on a file, pass the file name instead of - :

sqlformat example.sql --reindent --keywords upper
