MySQL Question

Is there a recommended way for interaction between python and MySQL?

What is the recommonded way to interact between python and MySQL? Currently I am using MySQLdb and I heared from Oursql. But I asked myself, if there is a more appropriate way to manage this.

Answer Source

MySQLdb is what most people use at the lower level, but oursql is interesting too. You can use higher level mechanisms such as

  • sqlalchemy
  • Django - note it comes with a whole web framework :)
  • I'm sure you can find others, look for 'python orm'
