Threading and multiprocessing eye-candy.

Project description

Description

Pebble provides a neat API to manage threads and processes within an application.

Examples

Spawn a function within a thread:

from pebble import thread


def function(foo, bar=0):
    print foo + bar


if __name__ == "__main__":
    thrd = thread.spawn(target=function, args=[1], kwargs={'bar':2})
    thrd.join()

Most of the functions work as well as decorators:

from pebble import process


@process.spawn(daemon=True)
def function(foo, bar=0):
    print(foo + bar)


if __name__ == "__main__":
    proc = function(1, bar=2)
    proc.join()

Run a job in a separate process and wait for its results:

from pebble import process


@process.concurrent
def function(foo, bar=0):
    return foo + bar


if __name__ == "__main__":
    task = function(1, bar=2)
    results = task.get()  # blocks until results are ready

Pools allow to execute several tasks without the need of spawning a new worker for each one of them:

from threading import current_thread
from pebble import thread


def task_done(task):
    results, thread_id = task.get()
    print "Task %s returned %d from thread %s" % (task.id,
                                                  results,
                                                  thread_id)


def do_job(foo, bar=0):
    return foo + bar, current_thread().ident


if __name__ == "__main__":
    with thread.Pool(workers=5) as pool:
        for i in range(0, 10):
            pool.schedule(do_job, args=(i, ), callback=task_done)

Check the documentation for more examples.

TODO:

  • taskselect, queueselect, threadselect, procselect: wait for multiple Tasks, Queues, Threads and Processes
  • channels for message driven synchronization
