Installing Database Drivers for SQLite#

Support for SQLite is provided by the standard library sqlite3 module; no extra library is required. The underlying SQLite database must be at least version 3.8.3.


SQLite3 can be used with gevent by explicitly choosing a gevent-aware driver. This uses a progress handler to switch periodically, and also moves certain blocking operations into gevent’s thread pool.

For additional details and warnings, see the “driver” section in SQLite Adapter Options.
