Simple kv store for Python

Project Description

LiteKV is a wrapper for sqlite3, it turns sqlite3 into a kv data store, and has similar APIs with redis-py.

Simply execute python -m litekv (if you have installed it) or python to run doctest.


>>> db = LiteKV(reset=True)
>>> db.set('a', '1')
>>> db.get('a')
>>> db.set('a', '2')
>>> db.get('a')
>>> db.set('b', '3')
>>> list(db.keys())
['a', 'b']
>>> db.delete('a')
>>> db.get('a') is None


$ python -m litekv --benchmark
