This is a fork of MySQLdb1.
This project adds Python 3 support and bug fixes. I hope this fork is merged back to MySQLdb1 like distribute was merged back to setuptools.

Or when you have question about MySQL:
Building mysqlclient on Windows is very hard. But there are some binary wheels you can install easily.
If binary wheels do not exist for your version of Python, it may be possible to
build from source, but if this does not work, do not come asking for support.
To build from source, download the
MariaDB C Connector and install
it. It must be installed in the default location
(usually "C:\Program Files\MariaDB\MariaDB Connector C" or
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MariaDB\MariaDB Connector C" for 32-bit). If you
build the connector yourself or install it in a different location, set the
MYSQLCLIENT_CONNECTOR before installing. Once you have
the connector installed and an appropriate version of Visual Studio for your
version of Python:
$ pip install mysqlclient
Install MySQL and mysqlclient:
# Assume you are activating Python 3 venv $ brew install mysql $ pip install mysqlclient
If you don't want to install MySQL server, you can use mysql-client instead:
# Assume you are activating Python 3 venv $ brew install mysql-client $ echo 'export PATH="/usr/local/opt/mysql-client/bin:$PATH"' >> ~/.bash_profile $ export PATH="/usr/local/opt/mysql-client/bin:$PATH" $ pip install mysqlclient
Note that this is a basic step. I can not support complete step for build for all environment. If you can see some error, you should fix it by yourself, or ask for support in some user forum. Don't file a issue on the issue tracker.
You may need to install the Python 3 and MySQL development headers and libraries like so:
$ sudo apt-get install python3-dev default-libmysqlclient-dev build-essential# Debian / Ubuntu
% sudo yum install python3-devel mysql-devel# Red Hat / CentOS
Then you can install mysqlclient via pip now:
$ pip install mysqlclient
Customize build (POSIX)
mariadb_config by default for finding
You can use
variables to customize compiler/linker options.
$ export MYSQLCLIENT_CFLAGS=`pkg-config mysqlclient --cflags` $ export MYSQLCLIENT_LDFLAGS=`pkg-config mysqlclient --libs` $ pip install mysqlclient
