You can install with pip

$ pip install pymysql-pooling


Make use of a simple table (Example in MySQL doc)

mysql> CREATE TABLE pet (name VARCHAR(20), owner VARCHAR(20),
    -> species VARCHAR(20), sex CHAR(1), birth DATE, death DATE);

mysql> INSERT INTO pet
    -> VALUES ("Puffball", "Diane", "hamster", "f", "1999-03-30", NULL);
from pymysqlpool.pool import Pool

pool = Pool(host=HOST, port=PORT, user=USER, password=PASSWORD, db=DB)

connection = pool.get_conn()
cur = connection.cursor()
cur.execute('SELECT * FROM `pet` WHERE `name`=%s', args=("Puffball", ))


This example will print:

('Puffball', 'Diane', 'hamster', 'f',, 3, 30), None)

Support autocommit mode, as following:

pool = Pool(host=HOST, port=PORT, user=USER, password=PASSWORD, db=DB, autocommit=True)

That's all.
