django-mysql-pymysql

This is a Django database backend for MySQL, using the PyMySQL database adapter. It is intended to be a drop-in replacement for the built-in MySQLdb backend, and leverages quite a bit of its code.

It is currently experimental, and has only been tested against Django trunk (1.4-pre-alpha), and Vinay Sajip's Py3k branch on BitBucket (https://bitbucket.org/vinay.sajip/django). At the moment, it won't work with Django 1.3, as it uses Aymeric Augustin's timezone-aware datetime patch.

Requirements

Installation

  1. Clone and install into your site-packages directory:

     $ git clone https://github.com/clelland/django-mysql-pymysql
     $ cd django-mysql-pymysql
     $ python setup.py install
    
  2. Edit your settings file:

     DATABASES = {
         'default': {
             'ENGINE': 'mysql_pymysql',
             'HOST': ...,
             'USER': ...,
             'PASSWORD': ...,
         }
     }
    
  3. You're done.
