Event-driven Postgres client library

Project Description

Hermes is a Postgres-talking, event-driven, failure-handling Python library. Its main purpose is to enable the easy implementation of resilient Python processes which require communication with Postgres. It defines a base-layer which you can build as little or as much as you like on top of.

It’s been used at Transifex to fulfil a number of roles, one of them including a Postgres -> Elasticsearch river.


The official docs can be found here.
