Firebird backend for Django 1.5+.

Project description

# django-firebird

## Firebird SQL backend for django

This version of django-firebird is working with *fbd* [1] .Therefore it will work only with firebird 2.x and later.
Also, the current master version of this repository is being developed under django 1.5. And we consider the driver almost stable.

Why the change?
fbd is the next official stable python-firebird driver, also it has support for python 3.

If you want to know more about the diferrences between *fdb* and *kinterbasdb* you can look at:

If you still use *kinterbasdb*, the original google code repository has an updated django-firebird 1.4 version.

* Python 2.6+
