Project description

DSE and OSS drivers unified under single DataStax driver

As of the 3.21.0 release of the Datastax Python Driver for Apache Cassandra® (OSS Driver), the Datastax Enterprise Python Driver (DSE driver) functionality has been merged into this single, DataStax driver. Please refer to the blog post for more information on this change.

The driver supports Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7.

Note: DataStax products do not support big-endian systems.
