APSW is now available on PyPI. News I missed from June: the venerable (17+ years old) APSW SQLite library for Python is now officially available on PyPI as a set of wheels, built using cibuildwheel. This is a really big deal: APSW is an extremely well maintained library which exposes way more low-level SQLite functionality than the standard library’s sqlite3 module, and to-date one of the only disadvantages of using it was the need to install it independently of PyPI. Now you can just run “pip install apsw”.
