SQLAlchemy dialect to use pysqlite3 dbapi2

Project description


This module registers an SQLAlchemy dialect for sqlite that uses pysqlite3.dbapi2 instead of pysqlite2.dbapi2 or sqlite3.dbapi2. When pysqlite3 is linked to a more recent version of SQLite3 than the system library, this allows you to use the newer version together with SQLAlchemy.

It would also be possible to do by passing a module parameter to create_engine, but that option is not always available.


pip install sqlalchemy-pysqlite3


from sqlalchemy import create_engine

engine = create_engine('sqlite+pysqlite3:///:memory:', echo=True)
