gevent compatibility for inotifyx

Project Description
# gevent_inotifyx

[gevent][1] compatibility module for the [inotifyx][2] Python inotify bindings.

This module is designed as a drop-in replacement for inotifyx.
Calling `gevent_inotifyx.get_events()` will only block the current greenlet
instead of the current thread.


## Installation

$ pip install gevent_inotifyx

From source:

$ python install

To run the tests:

$ python test

You can also test the module from the command line:

$ python -m gevent_inotifyx /some/path

will print inotify events for `/some/path`

## Example

Watch for newly created files and directories in `/tmp`:

import gevent
import gevent_inotifyx as inotify
from gevent.queue import Queue

def event_producer(fd, q):
while True:
events = inotify.get_events(fd)
for event in events:

q = Queue()
fd = inotify.init()
wd = inotify.add_watch(fd, '/tmp', inotify.IN_CREATE)

gevent.spawn(event_producer, fd, q)
while True:
event = q.get()
print "received event:", event.get_mask_description(),
