A reimplementation of Python's synchronized and bounded Queue.Queue on a Redis backend.
by Peter Sobot (@psobot, psobot.com). Licensed under MIT.
pressure implements everybody's favourite Python data structure, the
Queue.Queue, on top of everybody's favourite distributed
data store, Redis. Nearly all of the original Queue's API is replicated.
pressure allows for synchronized, blocking and distributed
(a.k.a.: multi-process) queues to be shared between processes, between
machines, and even between data centers.
pressure is also multilingual - the protocol is well-defined (see
protocol.md) and there are libraries already for different languages, all included
as submodules of this repo:
pressure-c(not submoduled just yet)
import pressure # Create two unique handles to the 'test' queue. q1 = pressure.PressureQueue('test') q2 = pressure.PressureQueue('test') # Create the 'test' queue, giving a bound of 5. q1.create(bound=5) # Put the strings into one handle. for string in ["hello", "goodbye"]: q1.put(string) # Close the queue - assert that no more data will be produced. q1.close() # Receive the strings from the other handle! for result in q2: print result # Prints: # "hello" # "goodbye" # Delete the queue from the database once its data has been consumed. # This should be done on the consumer's end, as the consumer knows # once all of the data is gone. q2.delete()

- Ensure that this library has 100% API coverage with the original Queue.Queue. - Clean up and document the internals.
This is GitHub after all, so please feel free to open an issue if you discover a bug. Better yet, feel free to fork this repo, add a test to cover the bug, maybe even fix the bug, and send me back a pull request. You'll get a gold star and a very happy tweet from me.
