Extensions to Django for use with MySQL/MariaDB

Project description Code Health
Dolphin-pony - taking two cute things and ending up with something incredibly scary

MySQL and its fork MariaDB have a number of features which are not available in vanilla Django - this package helps you get at them.


Here’s a short list of what’s inside:

  • User locks - easy locking between your distributed servers
  • Easy access to server status variables
  • approx_count on QuerySet for quick estimates of the number of objects - and a quicker admin
  • ‘Smart’ iteration methods on QuerySet for efficient iteration over large sets of objects slice-by-slice

All are documented at .


Tested with:

  • Python: 2.7, 3.3, 3.4
  • Django: 1.7
  • MySQL: 5.5, 5.6 / MariaDB: 5.5, 10.0, 10.1
  • mysqlclient: 1.3.5 (Python 3 compatible version of MySQL-python)

Any combination of these should be good.
