Following on from the announcement that YottaDB r1.34 introduces, amongst many other great enhancements, a language binding for Python developers, M/Gateway Developments would like to draw attention to our own Python language binding for M-like databases.

mg_python (formerly m_python) was released as an Open Source solution on 17 October 2009 for GT.M and InterSystems databases.  Support for YottaDB came on 12 December 2019.

mg_python provides two connectivity options for all databases: 

(1) in process access to local databases via their respective APIs.
(2) network based access to either local or remote databases.

Full access to the database environment is provided - direct access to globals and database functions written in M.  For InterSystems databases, full access to Cache/IRIS classes is provided.  And of course, mg_python provides access to the transaction processing facilities provided with each database.

Thanks for the reminder, Chris. The fact that we created a Python wrapper in no way detracts from the value of mg_python. Now users of Python and YottaDB have a choice of two routes between the end-points.

Good to know. Is there a body of code examples for working with python with an m database?

Go to https://gitlab.com/YottaDB/Lang/YDBPython/ and search for .py files.
