A (BSD licensed) context manager for timing execution.

Project Description

A (BSD licensed) context manager for timing execution. Useful for benchmarking everyday Python code easily/cleanly.

Usage

Usage is trivial. Simply wrap your code in a Timer context manager. Example:

from chrono import Timer

with Timer() as timed:
    # Put whatever logic you want here.
    # ``for`` loops are great here for timing things that are very fast.

print("Time spent: {0} seconds".format(timed.elapsed))

Requirements

  • Python 2.6+ or Python 3.3+ (may work on Python 2.5)

License

BSD

Shortcomings

This is implemented in pure Python, so it doesn’t have the accuracy a C extension would have. There’s also overhead for the context manager function calls, so don’t use this to bench C code.

That said, for most everyday usage of Python, it’s very helpful.

Running Tests

Setup:

$ git clone https://github.com/toastdriven/chrono.git
$ cd chrono
$ virtualenv -p python3 env3
$ . env3/bin/activate
$ pip install nose

Running:

$ nosetests -s -v tests.py

chrono is maintained with 100% passing tests at all times.
