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.

Durus

Durus is a persistent object system for applications written in the Python programming language. Durus offers an easy way to use and maintain a consistent collection of object instances used by one or more processes. Access and change of a persistent instances is managed through a cached Connection instance which includes commit() and abort() methods so that changes are transactional.

Pypersyst

Pypersyst provides fast, reliable, and flexible object persistence with a small footprint, suitable for embedding in other Python applications.

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.
