 Python 3.6.1
 Django 2.0
 Mac OS 10.13.3

 Following the instruction given in
 https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/2.0/ref/databases/#mysql-notes,
 installed pymysql with pip and then modified the settings.py to set up the
 adaptor according to https://dev.mysql.com/doc/connector-python/en
 /connector-python-django-backend.html, the url given by the official
 document.

 Then when executing {{{python3 manage.py makemigrations}}} error appears
 which displays {{{ImportError: No module named 'MySQLdb}}}. It is likely
 that django still uses MySQLdb, which is not supported by python3, as
 default in the release.

 The fix that works for me would be adding following code in the
 {{{__init__.py}}} of the site to use pymysql to replace mysqldb.

 {{{
 import pymysql
 pymysql.install_as_MySQLdb()
 }}}
