Django-MySQL is a non-inventively named package that helps you use some MySQL/MariaDB-specific features in the world of Django.

What kind of features?

Here’s a short list of what’s inside:

  • QuerySet extensions - ‘smart’ iteration, approx_count for quick estimates of count(), quick pt-visual-explain of the underlying query
  • Status variable inspection and utility methods
  • User locks - use MySQL as a locking server between your servers

To see them all, check out the exposition 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, and also MySQL-python should work since it’s just an older version of mysqlclient.
