I am using ActiveState Python 3 on Windows and wanted to connect to my MySQL database. I heard that mysqldb was the module to use. I can't find mysqldb for Python 3.

Is there a repository available where the binaries exist for mysqldb? How can I connect to MySQL in Python 3 on Windows?


mysql python-3.x

Thanks to casevh for the link to the unofficial binaries, but I was too impatient and it appears that the masses are still using python2 ... so I installed python 2.7 and installed MySQLdb from codegood.com/archives/129 – panofish Feb 10 '11 at 18:27

There are currently a few options for using Python 3 with mysql:

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/mysql-connector-python

  • Officially supported by Oracle
  • Pure python
  • A little slow
  • Not compatible with MySQLdb

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/pymysql

  • Pure python
  • Faster than mysql-connector
  • Almost completely compatible with MySQLdb, after calling pymysql.install_as_MySQLdb()

https://github.com/nakagami/CyMySQL

  • fork of pymysql with optional C speedups

https://pypi.python.org/pypi/mysqlclient

  • Django's recommended library.
  • Friendly fork of the original MySQLdb, hopes to merge back some day
  • The fastest implementation, as it is C based.
  • The most compatible with MySQLdb, as it is a fork
