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.
You may need to install the Python and MySQL development headers and libraries like so:
sudo apt-get install python-dev libmysqlclient-dev # Debian / Ubuntu
sudo yum install python-devel mysql-devel # Red Hat / CentOS
On Windows, there are binary wheel you can install without MySQLConnector/C or MSVC.
Note on Python 3 : if you are using python3 then you need to install python3-dev using the following command :
sudo apt-get install python3-dev # debian / Ubuntu
sudo yum install python3-devel # Red Hat / CentOS
brew install mysql-connector-c # macOS (Homebrew)
Install from PyPI
pip install mysqlclient
NOTE: Wheels for Windows may be not released with source package. You should pin version
requirements.txt to avoid trying to install newest source package.
Install from source
- Download source by
git cloneor zipfile.
