Native Python Databases


[http://buzhug.sourceforge.net/ buzhug] is a pure-Python database engine, using a Pythonic, no-SQL syntax.

The data is stored and accessed on disk (it is not an in-memory database). The implementation has been designed to make all operations, and especially selection, as fast as possible with an interpreted language.

A limited benchmark using the same use cases as SQLite's author shows that buzhug is much faster than other pure-Python modules (KirbyBase, gadfly). SQLite, which is implemented in C, is faster, but only less than 3 times on the average.


[http://www.pythonweb.org/projects/snakesql/ SnakeSQL] is a pure Python SQL database written to remove the dependence of the Python Web Modules on 3rd party drivers for non-Python databases like MySQL but designed to be a useful database in its own right.
