How can I connect to MySQL in Python 3 on Windows

0 votes
I am using ActiveState Python 3 on Windows and wanted to connect to my MySQL database. I heard that mysqldb was the module to use. I can't find mysqldb for Python 3.

Is there a repository available where the binaries exist for mysqldb? How can I connect to MySQL in Python 3 on Windows?

Hello @kartik,

You should probably use pymysql - Pure Python MySQL client instead.
It works with Python 3.x, and doesn't have any dependencies.

This pure Python MySQL client provides a DB-API to a MySQL database by talking directly to the server via the binary client/server protocol.

Example:

import pymysql
conn = pymysql.connect(host='127.0.0.1', unix_socket='/tmp/mysql.sock', user='root', passwd=None, db='mysql')
cur = conn.cursor()
cur.execute("SELECT Host,User FROM user")
for r in cur:
    print(r)
cur.close()
conn.close()

Hope it helps!!
Thank you!!
