Why install Python packages from ActiveState?

/ conda

Built from source code

We build all packages from known and vetted source code. The source code is stored indefinitely on our secure supply chain. This reduces the likelihood of specific types of exploits while eliminating typosquatting.


Support for OS-level dependencies

Artifact dependencies extend to the operating-system level. For example, when building XML libraries for Python, we also build Expat from its C source files.

Vetted new source releases

Source is updated as new versions are released, but after a manual and automatic review process and at 24-48 hour delay compared to the main public repository.


Artifacts built for Linux, MacOS, Windows

Isolated and ephemeral build environments

Build stages are conducted in single-use build environments that are discarded after the build is complete. Builds are run automatically based on known and version-controlled configurations.


Revision-controlled build history

The ActiveState Platform maintains a catalog of all source code used to build artifacts, along with all available metadata. This information is revision-controlled and immutable (except when a change is essential for security or privacy reasons).


Machine-readable SBOM

We store all provenance metadata available for all artifacts, exposing it as machine-readable SBOM files.

Supply chain levels for Software Artifacts (SLSA) Level 4

SLSA is led by an initial cross-organization, vendor-neutral steering group committed to improving the security ecosystem for everyone. SLSA Level 4 requires two-person review of all changes and a hermetic, reproducible build process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is SQLAlchemy?

SQLAlchemy is a Python SQL toolkit and Object Relational Mapper (SQLAlchemy ORM) that gives application developers the full power and flexibility of SQL from the command line.

It provides a full suite of well known enterprise-level persistence patterns, designed for efficient and high-performing database access, adapted into a simple and Pythonic domain language.

Which Python versions are compatible with SQLAlchemy?

SQLAlchemy is compatible with Python 2 (v2.7 and later), as well as Python 3 (v3.6 and later).

Where does SQLAlchemy install to?

As with all Python packages installed with pip, SQLAlchemy will be installed to %PYTHONHOME%/site-packages. This will always be true for global installations of SQLAlchemy. Once installed, you can then run import sqlalchemy. If you’re using a virtual environment (like virtualenv), SQLAlchemy will be installed differently, depending (for example) on where you created the directory for your virtual environment.

Note that you will have to install an SQL database (like MySQL, Oracle or postgresql) separately.

Does SQLAlchemy work on Windows, Linux and Mac?

Yes, SQLAlchemy will work Windows, Mac, and Linux (Ubuntu, CentOS, RHEL, etc.).

How is SQLAlchemy commonly used?

SQLAlchemy is commonly used to facilitate communication between Python programs and databases. Most of the time, this library is used as an Object Relational Mapper (ORM) tool that translates Python classes to tables on relational databases, and automatically converts function calls to SQL statements.

Read the docs.

How do I manually install SQLAlchemy?

The manual way to install SQLAlchemy package is to use pip package manager to download from PyPI and install in one step. You can also install it by following the directions on the repository.
