pycassa 1.11.0 Documentation

pycassa is a Thrift-based Python client for Apache Cassandra.

pycassa does not support CQL or Cassandra’s native protocol, which are a replacement for the Thrift interface that pycassa is based on. If you are starting a new project, it is highly recommended that you use the newer DataStax python driver instead of pycassa.

pycassa is open source under the MIT license. The source code repository for pycassa can be found on Github.
