The firebird-driver package provides official Python Database API 2.0-compliant driver. In addition to the minimal feature set of the standard Python DB API, this driver also exposes the new (interface-based) client API introduced in Firebird 3, and number of additional extensions and enhancements for convenient use of Firebird RDBMS. The driver is written as pure-Python package (requires Python 3.8+) on top of Firebird client library (fbclient.so/dll) using ctypes. Driver supports Firebird version 3.0 and higher.
You can download this driver from PyPI or install it using pip.
This version intruduces initial support for Firebird 5.0 new API and features.
See the Changelog for full details.

- Option to select separator: tab, comma or semicolon
- Option to store conversion settings into profile

I am happy to announce the release of “Firebird External Table Generator” (ext-table-gen for short).
External tables are a good way for bulk-loading data into Firebird. Unfortunately, external tables use a fixed-width binary format, and not (more) standard formats like CSV. It is not always easy to create an appropriate external table file, and this is where ext-table-gen can be used.
At a high level, ext-table-gen provides the following features:
- Derive a CHAR-based external table definition (i.e. a CREATE TABLE statement and a configuration for ext-table-gen) from a CSV file
- Transform a CSV file to an external table file (either based on the CSV file itself, or based on a configuration file)
The current version only supports CHAR columns, which makes the generated file essentially a fixed-width text format. Future versions may introduce support for additional column types.
You can find the 1.0 release at ext-table-gen v1.0.
Documentation and release notes can be found on https://mrotteveel.github.io/ext-table-gen/.
The project itself is hosted on https://github.com/mrotteveel/ext-table-gen.
In the current release, we have continued expanding the support of Firebird v4.
- The full support of DECFLOAT(16) and DECFLOAT(34) has been implemented
- The new version of IBProvider supports the ICU v63 from FB4 kit
- Using «ALTER SESSION RESET» for resetting a connection before reusing (see this new example)
Kind Regards and Good Luck! IBProvider Team.
Now using firebird-driver. Recommended for Firebird 3.0+.
The legacy fdb driver could still be used for Firebird 2.5.
Both SQLAlchemy 2.0 and 1.4 are supported.
