Build Status

A Boost-licensed native D client driver for MySQL and MariaDB.

This package attempts to provide composite objects and methods that will allow a wide range of common database operations, but be relatively easy to use. It has no dependecies on GPL header files or libraries, instead communicating directly with the server via the published client/server protocol.

API Reference

The primary interfaces:

  • Connection: Connection to the server, and querying and setting of server parameters.
  • exec(): Plain old SQL statement that does NOT return rows (like INSERT/UPDATE/CREATE/etc), returns number of rows affected
  • query(): Execute an SQL statement that DOES return rows (ie, SELECT) and handle the rows one at a time, as an input range.
  • querySet(): Execute an SQL statement and get a complete result set.
  • queryRow(): Execute an SQL statement and get the first row.
  • queryRowTuple(): Execute an SQL statement and get the first row into a matching tuple of D variables.
  • queryValue(): Execute an SQL statement and get the first value in the first row.
  • prepare(): Create a prepared statement
  • Prepared: A prepared statement, with principal methods:
  • Row: One "row" of results, used much like an array of Variant.
  • ResultRange: An input range of rows.
  • ResultSet: A random access range of rows.

Basic example:

import std.variant;
import mysql;

void main(string[] args)
	// Connect
	auto connectionStr = args[1];
	Connection conn = new Connection(connectionStr);
	scope(exit) conn.close();

	// Insert
	auto rowsAffected = exec(conn,
		"INSERT INTO `tablename` (`id`, `name`) VALUES (1, `Ann`), (2, `Bob`)");

	// Query
	ResultRange range = query(conn, "SELECT * FROM `tablename`");
	Row row = range.front;
	Variant id = row[0];
	Variant name = row[1];
	assert(id == 1);
	assert(name == "Ann");

	assert(range.front[0] == 2);
	assert(range.front[1] == "Bob");

	// Prepared statements
	Prepared prepared = prepare(conn, "SELECT * FROM `tablename` WHERE `name`=? OR `name`=?");
	prepared.setArgs("Bob", "Bobby");
	ResultRange bobs = prepared.query();
	bobs.close(); // Skip them
	prepared.setArgs("Bob", "Ann");
	ResultSet rs = prepared.querySet();
	assert(rs.length == 1);
	assert(rs[0][0] == 1);
	assert(rs[0][1] == "Ann");
	assert(rs[1][0] == 2);
	assert(rs[1][1] == "Bob");

	// Nulls
	Prepared insert = prepare(conn, "INSERT INTO `tablename` (`id`, `name`) VALUES (?,?)");
	insert.setArgs(null, "Cam"); // Also takes Nullable!T
	range = query(conn, "SELECT * FROM `tablename` WHERE `name`='Cam'");
	assert( range.front[0][0].type == typeid(typeof(null)) );

This package supports both Phobos sockets and Vibe.d sockets. Vibe.d support is disabled by default, to avoid unnecessary depencency on Vibe.d. To enable Vibe.d support, use:


If you compile using DUB, and your project uses Vibe.d, then the -version flag above will be included automatically.

This requires MySQL server v4.1.1 or later, or a MariaDB server. Older versions of MySQL server are obsolete, use known-insecure authentication, and are not supported by this package.

See .travis.yml for a list of officially supported D compiler versions.

A note on connections: Normally MySQL clients connect to a server on the same machine via a Unix socket on *nix systems, and through a named pipe on Windows. Neither of these conventions is currently supported. TCP is used for all connections.

See also the old homepage for the original release of this project is. Parts of it are out-of-date, but it still provides a decent overview of the current API. More up-to-date docs with examples are on the way, and are currently a high priority.

Developers - How to run the test suite

This package contains various unittests and integration tests. To run them, run run-tests.

The first time you run run-tests, it will automatically create a file testConnectionStr.txt in project's base diretory and then exit. This file is deliberately not contained in the source repository because it's specific to your system.

Open the testConnectionStr.txt file and verify the connection settings inside, modifying them as needed, and if necessary, creating a test user and blank test schema in your MySQL database.

The tests will completely clobber anything inside the db schema provided, but they will ONLY modify that one db schema. No other schema will be modified in any way.

After you've configured the connection string, run run-tests again and their tests will be compiled and run, first using Phobos sockets, then using Vibe sockets.
