Pidfile featuring stale detection and file-locking, can also be used as context-manager

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/trbs/pid.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/trbs/pid/badge.png

PidFile class featuring:

  • stale detection
  • pidfile locking (fcntl)
  • chmod (default is 0o644)
  • chown
  • custom exceptions

Context Manager

PidFile can be used as a context manager:

with PidFile():
  do_something()

Exception Order

In default mode PidFile will try to acquire a file lock before anything else. This means that normally you get a PidFileAlreadyLockedError instead of the PidFileAlreadyRunningError when running a program twice.

If you just want to know if a program is already running its easiest to use just PidFileError since it will capture all possible PidFile exceptions.
