The Messaging ToolKit

Project Description

Messaging ToolKit (mtk)

This software provides a Python package for messaging. The only messaging protocol currently supported is AMQP 0.9.1. This software was originally written because I wasn't happy with the Python client libraries that were available for use with `RabbitMQ <>`_. I didn't like their client interfaces, dependencies, and the bugs I found when using them. There are quite a few more `RabbitMQ Python client libraries <>`_ available now and I suggest you also evaluate them before picking a library that meets your needs.


This software is licensed under Version 2.0 of the Apache License.


This software can be configured using pip, setuptools, or if you are participating in `XSEDE <>`_, via RPM packages.

pip Installation

You may need to install `pip` on your system. There is a package named `python-pip` that a system administrator can install or you can install it as a normal user by downloading and running the ` <>`_ script.

If you are not a system administrator or you wish to install this software outside of the shared Python directories, you may wish to create a Python `virtual environment <>`_. Don't forget to add the virtual environment to your shell environment before running pip.

To install via `pip`, you may need to install simply execute:

$ pip install mtk

easy_install Installation

You can also install MTK via `easy_install` by:

$ easy_install mtk

Contact Information

This software is maintained by `Warren Smith <>`_ and you can contact him on bitbucket via a message. If you have problems with this software you are welcome to submit an `issue <>`_.
