The Python SQL Toolkit and Object Relational Mapper
SQLAlchemy requires Python 2.4 or higher. One or more DB-API implementations are also required for database access. See docs/intro.html for more information on supported DB-API implementations.
Python 3 Compatibility
Please see README.py3k for Python 3 installation and testing instructions.
Installation is supported with standard Python distutils, as well as with setuptools or Distribute. Distribute is recommended. Distribute can be installed using the provided "distribute_setup.py" script. The original setuptools may be installed using the "ez_setup.py" script if preferred, or simply do nothing and distutils will be used.
python setup.py install
To use without installation, include the lib directory in your Python path.
Please see README.unittests for full instructions on running unit tests.
