MySQL & macOS Silicon

It’s a problem for my students who purchased the new Apple hardware that uses Apple Silicon because they can’t install a Docker MySQL instance. However, there is Homebrew formula that works on macOS Big Sur and the new Apple silicon. It supports:

  • Intel Silicon: macOS Big Sur, Catalina, and Mojave
  • Apple Silicon: macOS Big Sur

The Homebrew Formula does have conflicts that you may need to avoid. It is a solution for those with the new Apple silicon.

As always, I hope this helps those looking for a solution.

MySQL Membership

MySQL membership conditions are in the MySQL 8 Documentation. They’re found in the 13.2.11.3 Subqueries with ANY, IN, or SOME section. The IN and =ANY operators both perform equality matches with one twist. The IN operator works with a set of values or a subquery but the =ANY operator only works with a subquery.

I created the digits, letters, and words tables for this example. They hold the following values respectively:

  • The numbers table holds the values of 1, 2, 3, and 4
  • The letters table holds the values of 'a', 'b', 'c', and 'd'
  • The words table holds the values of 'Captain America', 'Iron …

MySQL macOS Docker

While you can download MySQL as a DMG package, a number of users would prefer to install it as a Docker instance. You won’t find the macOS downloads on the same web site as other downloads. You can use the following macOS download site.

After installing Docker on your macOS, you can pull a copy of the current MySQL Server with the following command:

docker pull mysql/mysql-server

You should create a mysql directory inside your ~/Documents directory with this command:

mkdir ~/Documents/mysql

Then, you should use the cd command to change into the ~/Documents/mysql directory and run this command:

pwd

It should return the following directory: …

MySQL Self-Join

I’m switching to MySQL and leveraging Alan Beaulieu’s Learning SQL as a supporting reference for my Database Design and Development course. While reviewing Alan’s Chapter 5: Querying Multiple Tables, I found his coverage of using self-joins minimal.

In fact, he adds a prequel_film_id column to the film table in the sakila database and then a single row to demonstrate a minimal self-join query. I wanted to show them how to view a series of rows interconnected by a self-join, like the following:

SELECT   f.title AS film
,        fp.title AS prequel
FROM     film f LEFT JOIN film fp
ON       f.prequel_id = fp.film_id
WHERE    f.series_name = 'Harry Potter'
AND      fp.series_name = 'Harry Potter'
ORDER BY f.series_number;

It returns the following result set:

Python, oursql and MacOS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard)

This post explains how to compile oursql and install it on MacOS 10.6. oursql is a Python database interface for MySQL, an alternative to MySQL for Python (i.e. MySQLdb) and MySQL Connector/Python.

First, find out which MySQL you installed. This can be either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version. To make sure, find the mysqld (e.g. in /usr/local/mysql/bin) and do the following in a Terminal window:

shell> file /usr/local/mysql/bin/mysqld
.../mysqld: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64

If you see x86_64, you got 64-bit, otherwise 32-bit. If you see both, then you have a universal build. This is …
