ABOUT This directory contains a pure Python implementation of a voldemort client. It supports both raw (string) and JSON serialized stores. Only the protocol buffer interface over TCP is supported for talking to the server. Only server-side routing is supported. INSTALLING To install the module, you will need the following dependencies: - nose >= 0.11 - simplejson >= 2.1.1 - Google protobuf > 2.3.0 The setup process will automatically install nose and simplejson, since they are well behaved Python packages. The protobuf module will need to be downloaded from https://code.google.com/p/protobuf/downloads/list and installed manually. Once the dependencies, run the test suite to sanity check things. You need to first start up a Voldemort server locally, pointing to the config files in tests/voldemort_config. From the root voldemort of the voldemort source tree, run: > bin/voldemort-server clients/python/tests/voldemort_config In a separate shell, change into the clients/python directory and run: > python setup.py nosetests If all tests pass, you can install the package with the command: > python setup.py install This may need to be run as root if you don't have permissions to install to your local python library. USING THE MODULE To use the client, simple import it into your program with the statement: import voldemort To create a client connection, instantiate a StoreClient object: client = voldemort.StoreClient('store_name', [('node1', 6666), ('node2', 6666)]) The values of the store name and cluster nodes/ports will depend on your particular Voldemort setup. The key and value serialization type will be determined automatically during client initialization using the values in your cluster's stores.xml file. The StoreClient object implements the get(), get_all(), put(), maybe_put(), and delete() methods. For example: > v1 = client.put("foo", "hello") > resp = client.get("foo") > resp "hello" > client.delete("foo") > client.get("foo")  The test suite contains many other usage examples.
