Kinesis utilities

Project description


Miscellaneous utilities for AWS Kinesis.


pip install kinesisutils

To install the development version:

pip install git+


At the moment there is only one utility implemented: a Python generator that reads records from a Kinesis stream. You can use it like this:

import json

from kinesisutils import KinesisGenerator

# Hit Kinesis with at most 10 requests per second, usin json.loads to
# deserialize the Kinesis records (the default). You could deactivate record
# deserialization by setting des=None.
kg = KinesisGenerator("stream_name", rqs=10, des=json.loads)

for rec in kg:

By default the generator will keep pulling records from Kinesis for 60 seconds. You can customize this timeout if you want:

from kinesisutils import KinesisGenerator

kg = KinesisGenerator("stream_name", timeout=30)

for rec in kg:


If you have questions, bug reports, suggestions, etc. please create an issue on the GitHub project page. PRs are also welcome.
