python – Pip install mariadb mac

I’m wanting to connect to a MariaDB database for a web app via Python but can’t seem to install the mariadb package. I am running Mac with Python 3.7.9. Here is what I get when I try to run pip install mariadb is:

What I’ve tried:

  1. New virtual environment (same issue)
  2. Different Python version (same issue)
  3. brew install mariadb-connector-c (mariadb-connector-c 3.3.1 is already installed and up-to-date)
  4. brew install libmariadb-dev & brew install libmariadb3 (No available formula with the name "libmariadb-dev" & No available formula with the name "libmariadb3")
  5. brew install mariadb: installs but doesn’t fix issue
  6. Installing different but still relatively recent versions of mariadb: can do it but doesn’t fix issue
  7. Unlinking mariadb and linking mariadb-connector-c: can do it but doesn’t fix issue

I’ve probably tried a few more things somewhere along the rabbit hole. Any suggestions welcome. Thanks.
