Generate HTML documentation from a mysql database

Project Description

mysql-autodoc is a program to generate html documentation for a mysql dtabase.

The idea ant the template is base on the postgresql_autodo from Rod Taylor <>.

Version 0.2

It doesnt’t depend any more on a C API and on external dll for MySQL Connector (which was the case with MySQL-python). It now depends on a MySQL driver written in Python et available on Python Package Index: mysql-connector-python (>=1.0). Dependance on Jinja2 (>2.4) still.

Auto-install dependances.

Tested on Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.3.

pip install mysql-autodoc
