Taxon

Taxon is a tagged data store with persistence to a Redis backend. It allows you to organize and query Redis data sets with tags.

Features

  • Fully queryable. Supports expressions using And, Or, and Not operations as well as direct tag lookup.
  • Persistent. Data is stored in Redis.
  • Integrated. Taxon wraps Redis objects, and proxies Redis commands to Taxon through it.

Getting Started

First install the taxon package with pip:

$ pip install -U redis-taxon

Then you can instantiate Taxon stores in your code that wrap Redis objects from redis-py.

import redis
import taxon

t = taxon.Taxon(redis.Redis())

To tag data, use the tag method on a taxon.Taxon object.

t.tag('feature', ['issue-312', 'issue-199', 'issue-321'])
t.tag('experimental', ['issue-199'])

To get the items associated with the tag, you can provide the Store.query method with the name of the tag. The return value is a tuple of the key in which the result is stored, and the set of items in the result.

from taxon.query import Tag
key, items = t.query(Tag('feature'))

Querying

Taxon allows the dataset to be queried with arbitrary expressions and supports And, Or, and Not operations. The query syntax is a small DSL implemented directly in Python.

from taxon import Taxon
from taxon.query import And, Or, Not

# get issue tracker items with no action required
t = Taxon(my_redis_object)
_, items = t.query(Or('invalid', 'closed', 'wontfix'))

Query expressions can also be arbitrarily complex.

# get issue tracker items marked feature or bugfix, but not experimental
_, items = t.query(And(Or('feature', 'bugfix'), Not('experimental')))

There is an alternate query syntax available using the Tag member from taxon.query which uses operators instead of classes. The operators are & for And, | for Or, and ~ for Not. The above query in operator syntax looks like this:

from taxon.query import Tag
_, items = t.query((Tag('feature') | Tag('bugfix')) & ~Tag('experimental'))
