Pure Python MySQL Driver

Project description

This package contains a pure-Python MySQL client library. Documentation on the MySQL client/server protocol can be found here:

If you would like to run the test suite, edit the config parameters in pymysql/tests/ The goal of pymysql is to be a drop-in replacement for MySQLdb and work on CPython, Jython, IronPython and PyPy.

We test for compatibility by simply changing the import statements in the Django MySQL backend and running its unit tests as well as running it against the MySQLdb and myconnpy unit tests.


  • Python 2.6, 2.7 or 3.3
  • MySQL 4.1 or higher
  • protocol41 support, experimental 4.0 support
