psycopg2 - Python-PostgreSQL Database Adapter ******************************************** psycopg2 is a PostgreSQL database adapter for the Python programming language. This is version 2, a complete rewrite of the original code to provide new-style classes for connection and cursor objects and other sweet candies. Like the original, psycopg2 was written with the aim of being very small and fast, and stable as a rock. psycopg2 is different from the other database adapter because it was designed for heavily multi-threaded applications that create and destroy lots of cursors and make a conspicuous number of concurrent INSERTs or UPDATEs. psycopg2 also provide full asycronous operations for the really brave programmer. There are confirmed reports of psycopg 1.x compiling and running on Linux and FreeBSD on i386, Solaris, MacOS X and win32 architectures. psycopg2 does not introduce build-wise incompatible changes so it should be able to compile on all architectures just as its predecessor did. Now go read the INSTALL file. More information about psycopg2 extensions to the DBAPI-2.0 is available in the files located in the doc/ direcory. Example code can be found in the examples/ directory. If you make any changes to the code make sure to run the unit tests localed in tests/. psycopg2 is free software ("free as in freedom" but I like beer too.) It is licensed under the GNU Lesser General Public License, version 3 or later plus an exception to allow OpenSSL (libpq) linking; see LICENSE for more details. Contributors ------------ A short list of contributors to psycopg2 follows (if you feel you belong to this list and you can't find yourself here just drop me a mail): * Kudos to piro for all the documentation work. * Peter Fein contributed a logging connection/cursor class that even if it was not used directly heavily influenced the implementation currently in psycopg2.extras.
