Enhance Python memcached client with a dictionary class

Project Description

# mcdict

Python class to access a memcache as if it was a dict. This implementation includes the keys() method. All the memcache limitations are preserved, e.g. keys must be strings no longer than 250 bytes.

## Usage

Basic usage:

import mcdict mc = mcdict.MCDict() mc[“mummy”] = “Olena” print mc[“mummy”]

By default, it connects to localhost on port 11211. If you need to specify a host and/or port:

mc = mcdict.MCDict(mcaddress=‘’)

Access the underlying memcache Client object (note second mc)

{'accepting_conns': '1',
 'auth_cmds': '0',
 'auth_errors': '0',
 ... }

Retrieve a list of keys currently in use: (note that this will cause big memcaches to block until it completes and this won’t provide a complete list of keys on very big memcaches)

>>> mc.keys()
 ... ]

## Installation

pip install ‘git+git://’

## License

mcdict is released under the [MIT license](
