gevent-cooperative child processes and inter-process communication.
From 2012 to 2018 gipc’s home was at bitbucket.org/jgehrcke/gipc. Since then development has continued on GitHub.
gipc (pronunciation as in “gipsy”) provides reliable child process management and non-blocking inter-process communication in the context of gevent.
With gipc, multiprocessing.Process-based child processes can safely be created anywhere within your gevent-powered application. The API of multiprocessing.Process objects is provided in a gevent-cooperative way. Also, gipc provides a pipe-based transport layer for gevent-cooperative inter-greenlet and inter-process communication. gipc is lightweight and easy to integrate.
Individual example programs can be found in the examples directory.
Visit https://gehrcke.de/gipc for installation instructions, API docs, code examples, and in-depth information.
The current version of gipc works on CPython 3.6/3.7/3.8/3.9. It supports gevent versions 1.5 and newer and supports both, Unix-like systems as well as Windows. On Unix-like systems, gipc also works with PyPy2.7 and PyPy3.
gipc’s test suite is automatically executed on Linux, Darwin (macOS), and Windows.
