Simple pipelines building framework.
A simple framework for building a data pipeline.
It’s an advanced version of this: function4(function3(function2(function1(0))))
It looks like this:
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 --|-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.
Also provides a simple optionally-argumented NamedTuple and a command line interface generator.
See the doc strings in pipeline.py for a lot more information!
- 1.1 Function builders optional.
- 1.0.1 Fixed ordering problem.
Supports Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.x, pypy.
