Description: Simple context manager so that tasks can be reflected in the process names of Celery workers.


For instance:

from proctitle import *
with ProcTitle("intense task"):
do_something_intense()


Can also be used as a function decorator:

from proctitle import *
import time

@ProcTitle("delay")
def g(n):
time.sleep(n)

g(10) # during this time, the proc title is "python - delay"

@ProcTitle("sleeping", replace=True)
def f(n):
time.sleep(n)

f(10) # during this time, the proc title is just "sleeping"


Platform: UNKNOWN
