a new set of mysql bindings for python 2.4+.

oursql is a new set of mysql bindings for python 2.4+. Here’s a short list of reasons why you should use oursql over MySQLdb:

  • oursql has real parameterization.
  • oursql allows text or binary data to be streamed into the database and streamed out of the database, instead of requiring everything to be buffered in the client.
  • oursql can both insert rows lazily and fetch rows lazily.
  • oursql has unicode support on by default.
