Database abstraction layer for Python
PyDal is a database abstraction layer for Python. It provides a DBAPI 2.0 wrapper for DBAPI 2.0 drivers. Sounds strange, but even drivers that fully conform to the DBAPI can differ enough to make building database independent applications difficult. Two major abstractions handled by PyDal are paramstyles and datetime objects. PyDal makes it possible to use the same paramstyle and datetime types with any module that conforms to DBAPI 2.0. In addition, paramstyles and datetime types are configurable.
