Stable old version of inet

Project Description

# inet

**v0.2.4 has bug so you'll have to clone the head**

A simple library built on top of zeromq to enable different python
programs talk over sockets. It works using three components
*server*, *name service* and *client*. The main feature(or use) of this
library is its persistent name service

### Name Service
Start the inet server on command line
$ inetserver

### Server
The server is a function to respond to requests

from inet.inetclient import InetClient
from inet.server import RoutableServer

# talks with the inet server
proxy = InetClient('tcp://')

# frontend address is what clients connect to while backend address(unix socket)
# is what workers connect to
server = RoutableServer('testservice', proxy, 'tcp://',

def hello(req, resp):['greeting'] = 'World'
return resp

# spawn default(3) number of workers

### Client

from inet.inetclient import InetClient
from inet.client import Client

proxy = InetClient('tcp://')
client = Client(proxy)

# service name acts as protocol
resp = client.get('testservice://hello/world')
print(resp.meta['status']) # 200
print(['greeting']) # 'World'

*N.B*: Notes that it uses gevent for managing workers
