MySQL Connector/Python

MySQL Connector/Python enables Python programs to access MySQL databases, using an API that is compliant with the Python Database API Specification v2.0 (PEP 249). It also contains an implementation of the X DevAPI, an Application Programming Interface for working with the MySQL Document Store.

Installation

The recommended way to install Connector/Python is via pip.

Make sure you have a recent pip version installed on your system. If your system already has pip installed, you might need to update it. Or you can use the standalone pip installer.

shell> pip install mysql-connector-python

Please refer to the installation tutorial for installation alternatives.

Getting Started

Using the MySQL classic protocol:

import mysql.connector

# Connect to server
cnx = mysql.connector.connect(
    host="127.0.0.1",
    port=3306,
    user="mike",
    password="s3cre3t!")

# Get a cursor
cur = cnx.cursor()

# Execute a query
cur.execute("SELECT CURDATE()")

# Fetch one result
row = cur.fetchone()
print("Current date is: {0}".format(row[0]))

# Close connection
cnx.close()

Using the MySQL X DevAPI:

import mysqlx

# Connect to server
session = mysqlx.get_session(
   host="127.0.0.1",
   port=33060,
   user="mike",
   password="s3cr3t!")
schema = session.get_schema("test")

# Use the collection "my_collection"
collection = schema.get_collection("my_collection")

# Specify which document to find with Collection.find()
result = collection.find("name like :param") \
                   .bind("param", "S%") \
                   .limit(1) \
                   .execute()

# Print document
docs = result.fetch_all()
print(r"Name: {0}".format(docs[0]["name"]))

# Close session
session.close()

Please refer to the MySQL Connector/Python Developer Guide and the MySQL Connector/Python X DevAPI Reference for a complete usage guide.
