Simple data pipeline building library

Project description

Pipeless
========

*A simple library for building a data pipeline.*

|Build Status|

It's an advanced version of this:
``function4(function3(function2(function1(0))))``

It looks like this:

.. code-block:: python

from pipeless import pipeline

error_handler = lambda item, exception: None
function, run, _ = pipeline(error_handler)


@function
def add_one(_):
return _ + 1

list(run([1, 2, 3])) # [2, 3, 4]


@function
def doubler(_):
yield _
yield _ * 2

list(run([1, 2, 3])) # [2, 4, 3, 6, 4, 8]

* Pipelines operate over a source iterator (like a generator or a list).
* Functions can return 1 Item, None to drop the item, or
a generator. If a generator is given, the items all continue along the pipeline,
creating a fork.

..

add_one doubler
[1]--|-2----\-----2
Input -----4
Output [2,4]

* All exception are caught and handled by the optional ``error_handler`` input argument
to prevent one broken item from stopping the flow. If the handler returns something,
that something continues on down the pipeline.
* Functions can be grouped with an optional argument on the annotator i.e. ``@function('my_group')``.
Set up your functions this way and you can skip groups with the ``function_groups_to_skip`` argument
on the pipeline runner.

See the docstrings in ``pipeline.py`` for more information!

Versions:

- *2.0* Removed cli generator and optional tuples
- *1.1* Function builders optional.
- *1.0.1* Fixed ordering problem.
