DEPRECATED! Ongoing development of Kazoo has moved to https://github.com/python-zk/kazoo
kazoo - Python ZooKeeper client that supports async frameworks
ZooKeeper is a high-performance coordination service for distributed applications. The official Python client is a C extension which does not play well with asynchronous frameworks such as gevent due to its use of real threads. kazoo is a wrapper client which uses IO tricks to be async compatible. It also attempts to present a more pythonic interface than zkpython.
Initially kazoo only supports gevent as well as non-async environments.
Kazoo depends on the ZooKeeper python binding. Because this can be
installed in various ways, it is not a listed Python dependency of
kazoo. The ZK bindings should be installed from your distribution
if possible. Otherwise the unofficial
package is easy to install via PyPi.
