ThriftPy2

https://travis-ci.com/Thriftpy/thriftpy2.svg?branch=develop

ThriftPy: https://github.com/eleme/thriftpy has deprecated, ThriftPy2 aims to provide long term support.

Installation

Install with pip.

$ pip install thriftpy2

You may also install cython first to build cython extension locally.

$ pip install cython thriftpy2

Code Demo

ThriftPy make it super easy to write server/client code with thrift. Let's checkout this simple pingpong service demo.

We need a 'pingpong.thrift' file:

service PingPong {
    string ping(),
}

Then we can make a server:

import thriftpy
pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift")

from thriftpy.rpc import make_server

class Dispatcher(object):
    def ping(self):
        return "pong"

server = make_server(pingpong_thrift.PingPong, Dispatcher(), '127.0.0.1', 6000)
server.serve()

And a client:

import thriftpy
pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift")

from thriftpy.rpc import make_client

client = make_client(pingpong_thrift.PingPong, '127.0.0.1', 6000)
print(client.ping())

And it also supports asyncio on Python 3.5 or later:

import thriftpy
import asyncio
from thriftpy.rpc import make_aio_client


echo_thrift = thriftpy.load("echo.thrift", module_name="echo_thrift")


async def request():
    client = await make_aio_client(
        echo_thrift.EchoService, '127.0.0.1', 6000)
    print(await client.echo('hello, world'))
    client.close()
import asyncio
import thriftpy

from thriftpy.rpc import make_aio_server

echo_thrift = thriftpy.load("echo.thrift", module_name="echo_thrift")


class Dispatcher(object):
    async def echo(self, param):
        print(param)
        await asyncio.sleep(0.1)
        return param


def main():
    server = make_aio_server(
        echo_thrift.EchoService, Dispatcher(), '127.0.0.1', 6000)
    server.serve()


if __name__ == '__main__':
    main()

See, it's that easy!

You can refer to 'examples' and 'tests' directory in source code for more usage examples.

Features

Currently ThriftPy have these features (also advantages over the upstream python lib):

  • Supports Python 2.7, Python 3.4+, PyPy and PyPy3.

  • Pure python implementation. No longer need to compile & install the 'thrift' package. All you need is thriftpy and thrift file.

  • Compatible with Apache Thrift. You can use ThriftPy together with the official implementation servers and clients, such as a upstream server with a thriftpy client or the opposite.

    Currently implemented protocols and transports:

    • binary protocol (python and cython)
    • compact protocol (python and cython)
    • json protocol
    • buffered transport (python & cython)
    • framed transport
    • tornado server and client (with tornado 4.0)
    • http server and client
    • asyncio support (python 3.5 or later)
  • Can directly load thrift file as module, the sdk code will be generated on the fly.

    For example, pingpong_thrift = thriftpy.load("pingpong.thrift", module_name="pingpong_thrift") will load 'pingpong.thrift' as 'pingpong_thrift' module.

    Or, when import hook enabled by thriftpy.install_import_hook(), you can directly use import pingpong_thrift to import the 'pingpong.thrift' file as module, you may also use from pingpong_thrift import PingService to import specific object from the thrift module.

  • Easy RPC server/client setup.
