psycopg2cffi 2.6.1

.. image:: https://travis-ci.org/chtd/psycopg2cffi.svg

An implementation of the psycopg2 module using cffi. The module is currently compatible with Psycopg 2.5.

You can install psycopg2cffi from pypi:

pip install psycopg2cffi

Or from source:

python setup.py develop

Installation requirements are the same as for psycopg2 - you must have libpq headers, pg_config somewhere on your $PATH. Installation was tested on Ubuntu 12.04 and CentOS (RHEL 5.0). It should be possible to make it work on Windows, but I did not even test it.

This module works under CPython 2.6+, CPython 3.2+, PyPy 2 and PyPy 3 (PyPy version should be at least 2.0, which is ancient history now).

To use this package with Django or SQLAlchemy invoke a compatability hook (for example, from settings.py in case of django, or from a psycopg2.py file in site-packages of your virtual env):

from psycopg2cffi import compat
compat.register()

This will map psycopg2cffi to psycopg2.

Submit issues to https://github.com/chtd/psycopg2cffi/issues

If you notice that psycopg2cffi under PyPy is noticably slower than psycopg2 under CPython, submit this to the issues too - it should not be the case.

This is a port of (Michael van Tellingen port https://github.com/mvantellingen/psycopg2-ctypes of Alex Gaynor’s rpython port (https://bitbucket.org/alex_gaynor/pypy-postgresql/overview) of psycopg2 to python + ctypes) to cffi.

The main motivation for a port was speed - the writeup with benchmarks is here: http://chtd.ru/blog/bystraya-rabota-s-postgres-pod-pypy/?lang=en

Development

To run tests, install pytest and run them with:

py.test psycopg2cffi

You can also run Django tests. You need to checkout django source, add psycopg2 compat as described above, and, from the root of the django checkout:

PYTHONPATH=`pwd` ./tests/runtests.py \
    --settings=psycopg2cffi.tests.psycopg2_tests.testconfig

In case of problems with django tests, see official django docs https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/internals/contributing/writing-code/unit-tests/#running-the-unit-tests
