MySql-python: Pre Compiled Installer

Setting up the mysql python library requires a C compiler.

There is a built in compiler with visual studio, however configurations took some time, and still wasn’t making too much headway.

Instead you can download a pre compiled version of the library targeted at windows. There are probably more recent versions available with a quick Google at time of reading, however I found mine at Codegood.

This saved me a huge amount of time – thanks  Ioannis!
