Dictionary read on disk

Project description

Dictionary read on disk

Query items out-of-memory from a dictionary that would take to long to open, or one that doesn't fit in RAM, with Dikt.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.


You can install the method by typing:

pip install dikt

Basic usage

import dikt
import random

# generate a dictionary with 1 million entries
N = 1000000
data = {
    # key can be anything you want
    # values will be "eval"-ed by Python
    "key_" + str(i): list(range(i, i + 100)) for i in range(N)

# persist to dictionary using dikt
dikt.dump(data, "data.dikt")
del data

# load file
data = dikt.Dikt("data.dikt")

# get item without loading the whole file in RAM

# or get multiple items at once (here 10k)
keys = [f"key_" + str(random.randint(0, N - 1)) for i in range(10000)]
