Flower

collection of modules to build distributed and reliable concurrent systems in Python.

a = “”

def f():
   print(a)

def hello():
    a = "hello, world"
    tasklet(f)()

Requirements

Simple example

A simple example showing how to create a simple echo server.

# Echo server program
from flower import tasklet, run
from flower.net import Listen


# handle the connection. It return data to the sender.
def handle_connection(conn):
    while True:
        data = conn.read()
        if not data:
            break

        conn.write(data)


# Listen on tcp port 8000 on localhost
l = Listen(('127.0.0.1', 8000), "tcp")
try:
    while True:
        try:

            # wait for new connections (it doesn't block other tasks)
            conn, err = l.accept()

            # Handle the connection in a new task.
            # The loop then returns to accepting, so that
            # multiple connections may be served concurrently.

            t = tasklet(handle_connection)(conn)
        except KeyboardInterrupt:
            break
finally:
    l.close()

run()

And the echo client:

from flower import tasklet, run, schedule
from flower.net import Dial


# connect to the remote server
conn = Dial("tcp", ('127.0.0.1', 8000))

# start to handle the connection
# we send a string to the server and fetch the
# response back

for i in range(3):
    msg = "hello"
    print("sent %s" % msg)
    resp = conn.write(msg)
    ret = conn.read()
    print("echo: %s" % ret)

conn.close()
run()
