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.

beanstalkc is currently only supported on Python 2 and automatically tested against Python 2.6 and 2.7. Python 3 is not (yet) supported.


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

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

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