Erlang interface for Tokyo Tyrant
Medici is a Tokyo Tyrant interface for Erlang. It is composed of two basic parts, principe and the medici server. Principe is a thin Erlang wrapper around the Tokyo Tyrant TCP/IP API. It suports hash, b-tree, and table databases (the latter via the principe_table module). Principe does not do any connection handling beyond providing a simple connect() function, it just makes requests to a tyrant server and returns the results. Medici is an Erlang app that provides a supervised pool of client connections to the tyrant service (via principe) and a client controller that provides an fairly robust api for other processes to use when accessing the tyrant service. The medici app can also run a tyrant server as a port, controlling the server from Erlang and eliminating the necessity to start/stop this server outside of the Erlang application. --------- Mad props to Bob Ippolito for the pytyrant package that I used as a template and to Harish Mallipeddi whose tora package provided the response handling functions I am using with a few minor tweaks. Additional thanks to Yurii Rashkovski and Bhasker V Kode for bug fixes.
