Firebird is used by approximately 1 million of software developers worldwide. High compatibility with industry standards on many fronts makes Firebird the obvious choice for developing interoperable applications for homogeneous and hybrid environments.
Python Driver
FDB is a Python library package that implements Python Database API 2.0-compliant support for the open source relational database Firebird®. In addition to the minimal feature set of the standard Python DB API, FDB also exposes the entire native (old-style) client API of the database engine and number of additional extensions and enhancements for convenient use of Firebird.
  • FDB is implemented in Python on top of Firebird client library using ctypes.
  • FDB works with Firebird 2.0 and newer, Python 2.7+ and 3.0+.
  • FDB is free – covered by a permissive BSD-style license that both commercial and noncommercial users should find agreeable.
  • FDB was developed as replacement for (no longer maintained) KInterbasDB driver.
