Connection Strings

You can now use the tools you're familiar with to connect to PlanetScale databases, whether that’s with Rails, Python, Prisma, Laravel, or any other MySQL client. Connection strings are built for serverless scale and enable you to connect to other serverless computing platforms like AWS Lambda or Vercel.

Within PlanetScale, you can generate a new password and automatically get client code for many popular frameworks and languages for you to connect your PlanetScale database.

PlanetScale connection strings are built with security as a priority, so you can spend less time worrying if your database connections are secure. This includes strong passwords that are never stored in plain text, GitHub Secret Scanning, and native MySQL authentication support.
