simple key-value storage api

simplekv is an API for very basic key-value stores for storing binary data. Due to its basic interface, it is easy to implemented a large number of backends. simplekv's origins are in storing user-uploaded files on websites, but its low overhead and design should make it applicable for numerous other problems.

Features include storage in memory, local and remote filesystems and cloud storage services such as Amazon S3 and Google Storage. It also handles caching through support of various Python memcached-libraries and storage in databases through SQLAlchemy.


simplekv is available on PyPI and can be installed through pip or easy_install:

$ pip install simplekv
