Stripe ODBC Driver

The Stripe ODBC Driver is a powerful tool that allows you to connect with live Stripe account data, directly from any applications that support ODBC connectivity.

Access Stripe data like you would a database - read, write, and update Accounts, BankAccounts, Customers, Transfers, etc. through a standard ODBC Driver interface.



Connect to Stripe as an ODBC data source in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver for Stripe.

The CData ODBC Drivers can be used in any environment that supports loading an ODBC Driver. In this tutorial we will explore using the CData ODBC Driver for Stripe from within PyCharm. Included are steps for adding the CData ODBC Driver as a data source, as well as basic PyCharm code to query the data source and display results.

To begin, this tutorial will assume that you have already installed the CData ODBC Driver for Stripe as well as PyCharm.

Add Pyodbc to the Project

Follow the steps below to add the pyodbc module to your project.

  1. Click File -> Settings to open the project settings window.
  2. Click Project Interpreter from the Project: YourProjectName menu.
  3. To add pyodbc, click the + button and enter pyodbc.
  4. Click Install Package to install pyodbc.

Connect to Stripe

You can now connect with an ODBC connection string or a DSN. See the Getting Started section in the CData driver documentation for a guide to creating a DSN on your OS.

Use the OAuth authentication standard to connect to Stripe. To authenticate using OAuth, you will need to register an app to obtain the OAuthClientId, OAuthClientSecret, and CallbackURL connection properties. See the "Getting Started" chapter of the help documentation for a guide to using OAuth.

Below is the syntax for a DSN:

[CData Stripe Source] Driver = CData ODBC Driver for Stripe Description = My Description OAuthClientId = MyOAuthClientId OAuthClientSecret = MyOAuthClientSecret CallbackURL = http://localhost:33333

Execute SQL to Stripe

Instantiate a Cursor and use the execute method of the Cursor class to execute any SQL statement.

import pyodbc cnxn = pyodbc.connect('DRIVER={CData ODBC Driver for Stripe};OAuthClientId = MyOAuthClientId;OAuthClientSecret = MyOAuthClientSecret;CallbackURL = http://localhost:33333;') cursor = cnxn.cursor() cursor.execute("SELECT Email, Discount FROM Customers WHERE Delinquent = 'False'") rows = cursor.fetchall() for row in rows: print(row.Email, row.Discount)

After connecting to Stripe in PyCharm using the CData ODBC Driver, you will be able to build Python apps with access to Stripe data as if it were a standard database. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback regarding this tutorial, please contact us at support@cdata.com.
