Overview - Python Connector for xBase
Python Connector for xBase is a connectivity solution for accessing FoxPro, Visual FoxPro, dBase, and other databases in DBF file formats from Python applications. 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 enables you to establish a direct connection to Visual FoxPro, dBase, and other xBase databases eliminating the need for the client library. A direct connection increases the speed of data transmission between a Python application and an xBase database and simplifies the deployment.
The connector offers an internal data indexing mechanism that is way more efficient than native DBF indexes for complex queries.
You can choose to ignore corrupted data and metadata errors in DBF tables. Corrupted data is skipped, while intact data is properly retrieved.
Note: For details on supported OS versions, check the compatibility page of your Python version.
