Maximiliano Robaina wrote about Python3 fixes for the Firebird Django driver :

I just pushed up a new commit into django-firebird github repository [1] with several python 3 fixes.
If anybody can test it with python 3 and report any issue, it will be appreciated.

Take into account that this improvements are available into github repository, not on PyPI yet. Pull requests are welcome 😉

My First Firebird and Python application

Ido Kanner (ik_5) wrote on his blog about his First Firebird and Python application :

It’s that time of the year again – I’m required to learn new technology due to a project requirement.
The requirement is to write something using django, but I do not know django or Python.

So I’ve started my first project using the Python language, just to have a feel for it.

Django Firebird updates – now with support for introspection ready for Django 1.5 final

Hi folks,

I just updated the google code version with fixes in introspection. It was backported from github version [1]
So, I encourage to try both but mainly the version at github with the new fdb driver [2].
In that way, we can have our new django-firebird adapter almost stable for release along with the final release of django 1.5.

Django 1.5 driver for Firebird is updated (based on the fdb driver)

Maximiliano Robaina ‏announced :
There is a new version of django-firebird in github repository.
It is still alpha,You can test it with django 1.5 release.

This version is under development and uses the fdb python-firebird driver .
It’s tested only with django 1.5 master branch, so is possible it could fail with django 1.4.x (but it seems that works)
Given this is still in alpha stage we need that you try it and run the tests and give us feedback if it works for you. Also we need Python 3.x testers.

Update: Django 1.5 Beta is released

Firebird Django and the Future : FDB pure python driver , Django 1.4.x , Python 3.x support

Maximiliano Robaina wrote on the firebird django group some words and questions about the future of the driver :

My ideas for future organization are:

  1. Update de google repository with the last django-firebird version with support for django 1.4. It will be the last update in this sense.
  2. From here, the next oficial repository will be at github
  3. The version on github will use fdb in place of kinterbasdb

The point 3 is the most important to discuss because it means the total drop of firebird 1.5.x support.

I have added to the group the notes for installing django 1.4.x firebird driver on ubuntu

ps: bonus for using the FDB driver is python 3.x support out of the box , that means we can start testing django 1.5 on python 3.x
