Overview - Python Connector for Salesforce
Python Connector for Salesforce is a connectivity solution for accessing Salesforce from Python applications to read and update data. It fully implements the Python DB API 2.0 specification. The connector is distributed as a wheel package for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
The connector fully supports the ANSI SQL standard and lets you execute SQL statements against your Salesforce data just like you would normally work with relational databases. Simple queries are directly converted to Salesforce API calls and executed on the Salesforce side.
Complex queries are transformed into simpler queries, which are then converted to Salesforce API calls. The embedded SQL engine then processes the results in the local cache and applies advanced SQL features from the original complex query.
Note: For details on supported OS versions, check the compatibility page of your Python version.
