Pure Python Implementation of MySQL replication protocol build on top of PyMYSQL. This allow you to receive event like insert, update, delete with their datas and raw SQL queries.

Use cases

  • MySQL to NoSQL database replication
  • MySQL to search engine replication
  • Invalidate cache when something change in database
  • Audit
  • Real time analytics

Documentation

A work in progress documentation is available here: https://python-mysql-replication.readthedocs.org/en/latest/

Instruction about building documentation is available here: https://python-mysql-replication.readthedocs.org/en/latest/developement.html

Installation

pip install mysql-replication

Mailing List

You can get support and discuss about new features on: https://groups.google.com/d/forum/python-mysql-replication

Project status

The project is test with:

  • MySQL 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7
  • Python >= 2.6
  • Python 3.3 and 3.4 (3.2 is not supported)
  • PyPy (really faster than the standard Python interpreter)

The project is used in production for critical stuff in some medium internet corporations. But all use case as not been perfectly test in the real world.

Limitations

Projects using this library

MySQL server settings

In your MySQL server configuration file you need to enable replication:

[mysqld]
server-id        = 1
log_bin          = /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.log
expire_logs_days = 10
max_binlog_size  = 100M
binlog-format    = row #Very important if you want to receive write, update and delete row events

Examples

All examples are available in the examples directory

This example will dump all replication events to the console:

from pymysqlreplication import BinLogStreamReader

mysql_settings = {'host': '127.0.0.1', 'port': 3306, 'user': 'root', 'passwd': ''}

stream = BinLogStreamReader(connection_settings = mysql_settings, server_id=100)

for binlogevent in stream:
    binlogevent.dump()

stream.close()

For this SQL sessions:

CREATE DATABASE test;
use test;
CREATE TABLE test4 (id int NOT NULL AUTO_INCREMENT, data VARCHAR(255), data2 VARCHAR(255), PRIMARY KEY(id));
INSERT INTO test4 (data,data2) VALUES ("Hello", "World");
UPDATE test4 SET data = "World", data2="Hello" WHERE id = 1;
DELETE FROM test4 WHERE id = 1;

Output will be:
