snakeoil is a python library that implements optimized versions of common python functionality. Some classes and functions have cpython equivalents, but they all have native python implementations too.
For bugs and feature requests please create an issue in the issue tracker.
A standalone test runner is integrated in setup.py; to run, just execute:
python setup.py test
In addition, a tox config is provided so the testsuite can be run in a virtualenv setup against all supported python versions. To run tests for all environments just execute tox in the root directory of a repo or unpacked tarball. Otherwise, for a specific python version execute something similar to the following:
tox -e py27
Note that mock is required for tests if you're using anything less than python 3.3.
tar jxf snakeoil-0.xx.tar.bz2 cd snakeoil-0.xx python setup.py build
cd snakeoil-0.xx python setup.py install
