Unix-friendly HotQueue worker processes.
Author: Jamie Matthews. Follow me on Twitter.
This module allows you to create worker processes that listen on HotQueue queues. Your workers will gracefully shut down when they receive a Unix signal telling them to exit, finishing with the item currently being processing first. Uses simplesignals for signal handling.
from hotworker import worker @worker def printer(item): print item if __name__ == "__main__": printer()
Run this worker at the command line or with a process monitor such as Circus. Then, in your main program:
from hotqueue import HotQueue queue = HotQueue('printer') queue.put("Hello from HotWorker")
- Initial release.
You can install hotworker from PyPI:
pip install hotworker
