Python Connector for xBase

More Python Connectors

Python Connector for xBase is a reliable connectivity solution for accessing the xBase family of databases from Python applications to perform create, read, update, and delete operations on data. The solution fully implements the Python DB API 2.0 specification and is distributed as a wheel package for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

Direct Connection

The solution 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.

Direct connection to FoxPro and dBase


Easy deployment and high performance

High Performance

The connector supports a direct connection to the xBase family of databases without the database client library. It also lets you submit multiple update statements to the database for processing as a batch to improve execution time.

Cost-effective deployment

Fast Deployment

If your Python application must be deployed on multiple user workstations, you don't have to supply the database client library for every user since our connector supports a direct connection.

Retrieval of corrupted data

Retrieval of Corrupted Data

The connector provides options for ignoring corrupted data and metadata errors in DBF tables. Corrupted data is skipped, while intact data is properly retrieved.

Platform support

Platform Support

The Python connector is available for Windows 32-bit and 64-bit, macOS 64-bit, and Linux 64-bit.

Unicode-compliant connector

Unicode-Compliant Connector

Th Unicode-compliant connector lets you retrieve and update multilingual data, regardless of its character encoding (Chinese, Cyrillic, Hebrew, and more) in any language environment.

All major versions of data stores are supported

Data Types Support

The connector supports all xBase and Python data types. It offers additional options to control data type mapping between the xBase data types and Python data types.
