mprpc

⚠️ NOTICE: This library is not actively maintained. Please consider using other alternatives such as gRPC.

mprpc is a lightweight MessagePack RPC library. It enables you to easily build a distributed server-side system by writing a small amount of code. It is built on top of gevent and MessagePack.

Installation

To install mprpc, simply:

$ pip install mprpc

Alternatively,

$ easy_install mprpc

Examples

RPC server

from gevent.server import StreamServer
from mprpc import RPCServer

class SumServer(RPCServer):
    def sum(self, x, y):
        return x + y

server = StreamServer(('127.0.0.1', 6000), SumServer())
server.serve_forever()

RPC client

from mprpc import RPCClient

client = RPCClient('127.0.0.1', 6000)
print client.call('sum', 1, 2)

RPC client with connection pooling

import gsocketpool.pool
from mprpc import RPCPoolClient

client_pool = gsocketpool.pool.Pool(RPCPoolClient, dict(host='127.0.0.1', port=6000))

with client_pool.connection() as client:
    print client.call('sum', 1, 2)

Performance

mprpc significantly outperforms the official MessagePack RPC (1.8x faster), which is built using Facebook's Tornado and MessagePack, and ZeroRPC (14x faster), which is built using ZeroMQ and MessagePack.
