Firebird backend for Django web framework

Project description

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 1.6. For previous Django stable version there is the stable/1.5.x branch and we consider the driver stable. fbd is the official stable python-firebird driver, also it has support for python 3.

Legacy driver

Why the change from kinterbasdb to fdb?

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

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.db.firebird.python/185/focus=187

http://pythonhosted.org//fdb/differences-from-kdb.html

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