Introduction to bmemcached
A pure python module (thread safe) to access memcached via it's binary with SASL auth support.
The main purpose of this module it to be able to communicate with memcached using binary protocol and support authentication, so it can work with Heroku for example.
Latest compiled docs on Read The Docs here.
Use pip or easy_install.
pip install python-binary-memcached
import bmemcached client = bmemcached.Client(('127.0.0.1:11211', ), 'user', 'password') client.set('key', 'value') print(client.get('key'))
Using it with distributed keys
import bmemcached client = bmemcached.DistributedClient( ('127.0.0.1:11211', ), 'user', 'password' ) client.set('key', 'value') print(client.get('key'))
$ pytest ... 170 passed in 4.43 seconds
This runs the tests with the default Python interpreter.
You can also verify that the tests pass on other supported Python interpreters.
For this we use
tox, which will automatically create a
each supported Python version and run the tests. For example:
$ tox ... py27: commands succeeded ERROR: py34: InterpreterNotFound: python3.4 py35: commands succeeded py36: commands succeeded py37: commands succeeded py38: commands succeeded
You may not have all the required Python versions installed, in which case you
will see one or more
Using with Django
