Supercharged threads

Project Description

Supercharged (sensible) execption propogating and lightweight wrapper around the standard library Thread. Basically ensures that you don’t have to perform cartwheels just to ensure that the execution of your threaded tests/programs do not fail behind your back with some exception. Usage example:

>>> from exthread import ExThread
>>> def task():
        arr = [1,2,3]

>>> t = ExThread(task)
>>> t.start()
>>> t.join()
Traceback (most recent call last):
IndexError: ...

The API is deliciously simple:

>>> def task(a, b=1):
        return [a, b]

>>> t = ExThread(task, (1,), dict(b=2))
>>> t.start()
>>> t.join()
[1, 2]
>>> assert t.err is None
>>> assert t.val == [1, 2]

You don’t really need it. But you want it.
