To bundle MySQL as a package in a Python app, you can use the mysql-connector-python package. Here are the general steps you can follow:

Install the mysql-connector-python package using pip. You can do this by running the following command in your terminal:

Copy code
pip install mysql-connector-python
Import the mysql.connector module in your Python script:

Copy code
import mysql.connector
Use the mysql.connector.connect() method to create a connection object to the MySQL server:

Copy code
cnx = mysql.connector.connect(user='username', password='password',
host='hostname', database='database_name')
Replace the username, password, hostname, and database_name values with the appropriate information for your MySQL server.

You can now use the cnx connection object to interact with the MySQL database, such as executing SQL queries and retrieving results.

Copy code
cursor = cnx.cursor()
cursor.execute('SELECT * FROM table_name')
results = cursor.fetchall()
Once you have finished using the MySQL database, be sure to close the connection:

Copy code
You can include the mysql-connector-python package in your app's requirements.txt file or file, depending on how you are packaging and distributing your app. This will ensure that users who install your app will have the required dependencies installed.
