Webpy does not require a database to run. It does, however, support using the following databases:
* [postgresql](http://www.postgresql.org/download/) [BSD] [(doc)](http://www.postgresql.org/docs/) with [psycopg2](http://initd.org/pub/software/psycopg/) [BSD] [(doc)](http://www.initd.org/tracker/psycopg/wiki/PsycopgTwo) as the python client. (`easy_install psycopg2`)
-
* [mysql](http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/mysql/5.0.html) [GPL] [(doc)](http://www.mysql.org/doc/) with [MySQLdb](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=22307) [CNRI] [(doc)](http://mysql-python.sourceforge.net/MySQLdb.html) as the python client (`easy_install MySQL-python`)
-
* [sqlite](http://www.sqlite.org/) [Public domain] [(doc)](http://www.sqlite.org/docs.html) with [pysqlite](http://code.google.com/p/pysqlite/) as python client (`easy_install pysqlite`).
##Connection Pooling:
+
+For high traffic sites, connection pooling allows Webpy to keep multiple database connections open, typically allowing faster access from the database. This is optional, but available as a scaling tactic.
+
* [DBUtils](http://www.w4py.org/downloads/DBUtils/) [CNRI] [(doc)](http://www.webwareforpython.org/DBUtils/Docs/UsersGuide.html) (`easy_install DBUtils`)
##Templates:
+
+Webpy has its own template system which allows users to let untrusted users write templates, and use python-like syntax within templates.
+
* template.py [built-in] [(doc)](/docs/0.3/templetor)
##User Input:
+
+Markdown allows Webpy users to write text which gets converted to HTML on page display. It isn't necessary, but is the recommended way to generate formatted HTML from user input.

* [python-markdown](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=153041) [BSD] [(doc)](http://www.freewisdom.org/projects/python-markdown/)
