This is a fork of MySQLdb1.
This project adds Python 3 support and bug fixes. I hope this fork is merged back to MySQLdb1 like distribute was merged back to setuptools.

When your question looks relating to Python rather than MySQL:
Or when you have question about MySQL:
Building mysqlclient on Windows is very hard. But there are some binary wheels you can install easily.
Install MySQL and mysqlclient:
# Assume you are activating Python 3 venv $ brew install mysql $ pip install mysqlclient
If you don't want to install MySQL server, you can use mysql-client instead:
# Assume you are activating Python 3 venv $ brew install mysql-client $ echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/mysql-client/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile $ export PATH="/usr/local/opt/mysql-client/bin:$PATH" $ pip install mysqlclient
Note that this is a basic step. I can not support complete step for build for all environment. If you can see some error, you should fix it by yourself, or ask for support in some user forum. Don't file a issue on the issue tracker.
You may need to install the Python 3 and MySQL development headers and libraries like so:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev default-libmysqlclient-dev build-essential# Debian / Ubuntu
% sudo yum install python3-devel mysql-devel# Red Hat / CentOS
Then you can install mysqlclient via pip now:
$ pip install mysqlclient
