Native Python Databases

Gadfly

Gadfly is a simple relational database system implemented in Python based on the SQL Structured Query Language.

http://gadfly.sourceforge.net/

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.

ZODB

Zope Object Database.

shelve

A [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-shelve.html shelf] is a persistent, dictionary-like object. The difference with dbm databases is that the values (not the keys!) in a shelf can be essentially arbitrary Python objects -- anything that the [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-pickle.html pickle] module can handle. This includes most class instances, recursive data types, and objects containing lots of shared sub-objects. The keys are ordinary strings.

Datafiles interfaces

Things you open.

xBase

Which stands for .dbf files interface.BR .dbf files were produced by several old systems like dBase(II,III,IV), Fox(Base,Pro)

dbm

A family of old unix plain hash tables. Has varieties like dbm, ndbm, gdbm, dbmdb185.BR See [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-anydbm.html anydbm], [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-dumbdbm.html dumbdbm], [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-dbhash.html dbhash], [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-bsddb.html bsddb], [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-dbm.html dbm], [http://www.python.org/doc/current/lib/module-gdbm.html gdbm] in Python Standard Library.

XML Databases or Interfaces

Forest

[http://cvs.infrae.com/forest/ Forest] is a (native) XML database written in Python. It is intended to support fast queries of XML data.

Object-Relational Mappers

[http://sqlobject.org SQLObject] is an object-relational mapper. It allows you to translate RDBMS table rows into Python objects, and manipulate those objects to transparently manipulate the database.

[http://orm.nongnu.org/ ORM] ([http://freshmeat.net/projects/orm/ Freshmeat entry]) The Object Relational Membrane is a Python package that provides the functionality of an object relational layer like EJB or other persistence storage systems. It is a thin compatibility layer between SQL table layouts and Object Oriented Python. While providing a good deal of functionality, it tries to be as small and simple as possible. It works with PostgreSQL and MySQL.

QLime ([http://freshmeat.net/projects/qlime/ Freshmeat entry]) Easy to use, transparent data access to relational databases or other data sources. See examples here: http://www.qlime.org/example.rst Note: qlime.org does not currently provide the QLime site
