Connection to MySQLMySQLdb provides python db api interface.
It has connect() method, which parameters are host, user, passwd and so on.
Sample code I tried is as follows.
import MySQLdb connect = MySQLdb.connect(host='localhost',db='my_db',user='root',passwd='') connect.cursorclass = MySQLdb.cursors.DictCursor cursor = connect.cursor()
Then, I could get the cursor. DictCursor enables to fetch data as dictionary base.
I can see database information from the cursor.
print cursor.execute('show databases') print cursor.execute('show tables') print cursor.execute('select * from my_table')
Cursor methodCursor has execute() which can tell MySQL sql script. Cursor have to be in "try-except" whenever call "insert" command.
Python's exception seems easy and readable.
try: cursor.execute("INSERT INTO my_table VALUES (%s,%s)",(188,'char')) connect.commit() except: connect.rollback()
I could extract all information as follows.
cursor.execute('select * from my_table') rows = cursor.fetchall() for row in rows: print row print int(row["id"]) a += row["id"] cursor.close() connect.close()
