I've been learning Python using Flask and the UnixODBC drivers. The application server is a Ubuntu machine with the database on the IBMi.

I want to analyze Django to see if it would be a better path for the foundation of applications we want to write. Django being much more opinionated, my first goal is to make sure I can hook up to the database. DB2, let alone DB2 on i, is not one of the officially supported databases and I'm not finding much information on IBMi centric connection methods. I do see there is a connector under development but it clearly states that it is not ready for production use at this time. I searched this group and I know some of you are using Django.

For those of you who are, what method did you use to connect to the IBMi databases? If there are any tutorials or other documentation on the subject that would help me get going in the right direction, links would be greatly appreciated.
