Re: Django 1.7 not working with mysql-connector-python 1.1.6 & Python 3.3 ?

And I wish I could upvote your solution to heaven!
Thanks for sharing that, why is it not documented anywhere? Sounds like a killing feature..

Oracle's answer was pretty generic, but they are right that Django 1.7 is
still in development. It is good to know that they are planning to support it
when it is released. I am glad I don't have to roll-out 1.6 and then manage an
upgrade a few months after our launch.

PyMySQL appears to work fine, but I haven't benchmarked it yet. Knowing that I
can drop in the Oracle connector if there is a problem makes me confident to
move forward.
