MySQL bindings for Node.js using libmysqlclient.
Check out the Github repo for the source code.
Extra information available in wiki.


This module tested with Node version v0.2.2.

To build it you must install libmysqlclient library and development files for it. Node-waf use mysql_config to determine the paths to the library and header files. To install these dependencies, you can use the console.

For CentOS: #> yum install mysql-devel

For openSUSE: #> zypper install libmysqlclient-devel

For Debian/Ubuntu: #> apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

Yes, you would use aptitude if you want.

Build and use

To build the bindings library you should run this command in console: $> node-waf configure build

To rebuild: $> node-waf distclean configure build

To run tests: $> git submodule update --init $> node-waf test

The two files required to use these bindings are ./mysql-libmysqlclient.js and ./mysql_bindings.node (build/default/mysql_bindings.node). Put module directory in your NODE_PATH or copy those two files where you need them.


I will be happy to hear tips from the more experienced programmers. If you are interested in wide MySQL usage in Node.JS applications, leave your comments to the code. I'll be glad to see your forks and commits in them :)

To contribute any patches, simply fork this repository using GitHub and send a pull request to me. Thanks!
