green-monkey

Use green versions of all possible modules. For use with gevent.

http://mathburritos.org/misc/greenmonkey2.png

Install & Usage

pip install green-monkey or, from source, python setup.py install

In addition to installing green_monkey, this will install green versions of all possible modules.

Then place the following:

import green_monkey
green_monkey.patch_all()

somewhere before any of your normal imports or code.

You'll now be using green versions of all modules and the standard library will be patched. You can think of this as an extension of monkey.patch_all() beyond the standard library.

Example: greening Django project

For instance, in a standard WSGI handler for Apache you might do something like this:

import os, sys
sys.path.append('/usr/local/django')
os.environ['DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE'] = 'mysite.settings'

import green_monkey
green_monkey.patch_all()

import django.core.handlers.wsgi

application = django.core.handlers.wsgi.WSGIHandler()

Or in a Gunicorn config, you might do something like this:

bind = "127.0.0.1:"
workers = 3
worker_class = "gevent"

def def_post_fork(server, worker):
    import green_monkey
    green_monkey.patch_all()

post_fork = def_post_fork

and now your Django project is probably green!

In general, it's not possible to automatically green an arbitrary codebase, as it may do something like call an external C library which blocks. But for many projects this will work well -- especially for largely self-contained bits of code, e.g. event handlers in django-socketio.
