pybloomfiltermmap

The goal of pybloomfiltermmap is simple: to provide a fast, simple, scalable, correct library for Bloom Filters in Python.

Docs

You should probably read the docs online at http://mike.axiak.net/python-bloom-filter/docs/html/

Overview

After you install, the interface to use is a cross between a file interface and a ste interface. As an example:

>>> fruit = pybloomfilter.BloomFilter(100000, 0.1, '/tmp/words.bloom')
>>> fruit.extend(('apple', 'pear', 'orange', 'apple'))
>>> len(bf)
3
>>> 'mike' in fruit
False

Install

You may or may not want to use Cython. If you have it installed, the setup file will build the C file from the pyx file. Otherwise, it will skip that step automatically and build from the packaged C file.

To install:

$ sudo python setup.py install

and you should be set.
