Updates to Safebrowsing-python

Two days back, I made quite big changes to safebrowsing-python, the python library for looking up blacklisted URLs against Google's updated phishing and malware database.

The changes are:

  • Added support for databases like Mysql, Postgresql. Previously, SQLite was the only supported database.
  • It is quite easy to switch from one database to another. Just edit the conf.py file under safebrowsing folder and you are done.
  • As per the HTTP 1.1 RFC, URL fields accept 2048 characters by default.

To check how to use it, visit this.

I want to thank all the contributors for their invaluable bug-patches and suggestions.
