Just run

pip install binge

to get the most recent stable version.


The only entry point is the binge.B classe. You’ll just use it like this:

> import time
> from binge import B

> def f(x, a=2):
>    time.sleep(1)
>    return x*a

# normal call
> [f(x) for x in range(4)]
[0, 2, 4, 6]  # takes 4 seconds to run

# binged call, using 3 extra characters: `B`, `(`, and `)`
> B(f)([x for x in range(4)])
[0, 2, 4, 6]  # takes 1 second to run on 4 CPUs

# and if you're very lazy, you could even call
> B(f)(range(4))

# and what about the `a` parameter? - too easy
> B(f)(range(4), 3)
[0, 3, 6, 9]

# and guess what also works?
> B(f)(range(4), a=[1,2,3,6])
[0, 2, 6, 18]

More usage details, see


All the options are documented in the docstrings for the B classes. These can be viewed in a Python shell using:

from binge import B

or, in IPython using:

from binge import B
