beanstalkc

beanstalkc is a simple beanstalkd client library for Python. beanstalkd is a fast, distributed, in-memory workqueue service.

beanstalkc depends on PyYAML, but there are ways to avoid this dependency. See Appendix A of the tutorial for details.

beanstalkc is pure Python, and is compatible with eventlet and gevent.

Usage

Here is a short example, to illustrate the flavor of beanstalkc:

>>> import beanstalkc
>>> beanstalk = beanstalkc.Connection(host='localhost', port=14711)
>>> beanstalk.put('hey!')
1
>>> job = beanstalk.reserve()
>>> job.body
'hey!'
>>> job.delete()

For more information, see the tutorial, which will explain most everything.
