text storage: shelve vs anydbm vs ?

Discussion in 'Python' started by Anton Sherwood, Apr 17, 2004.

  1. Rather newbie question here.

    My current project will build a database of solutions to a topology
    problem, which I'll eventually put (readonly) on my website. The
    entries are text of varying length. The keys are likewise of varying
    length.

    Is anydbm the way to go? Is shelve anything more than a wrapper for it?
    Should I be looking at something else?

    If MySQL is available on your website it is both
    fast and stable. It is also very easy to call
    from Python. Lots of ISPs also have admin
    interfaces that make it easy to make ad-hoc
    changes via web interface. Normally it is free.
    If you are self hosted, the same is true.
