pyfirebirdslq driver for Firebird

Anonymous created an issue

I suggest you to use http://pypi.python.org/pypi/firebirdsql/0.3.4 as a driver for Firebird this driver is in pure Python and work with P2K and P3K

if need contact the python firebird list firebird-python AT yahoogroups.com

    Basic instructions:

    A new file called lib/sqlalchemy/dialects/firebird/firebirdsql.py, which would contain code very similar to that of lib/sqlalchemy/dialects/firebird/kinterbasdb.py. Then the "hello world" test for a dialect is that it gets through at least most of "test.sql.test_query" and in this case "test.dialect.test_firebird".

    "blue sky" typically means, "nice to have, someday, or not, whatever".

    adding a new DBAPI dialect for an existing system isn't that big a deal so if someone wants to contribute a firebirdsql.py file I can drop it in.

    I have no plans to add this and I would continue to prefer if the entire firebird dialect could be lifted into an external project. As always, if a contributor would like to supply a PR to add support to our existing firebird dialects that can be accepted.
