Pidfile featuring stale detection and file-locking, can also be used as context-manager or decorator
PidFile class featuring:
- stale detection
- pidfile locking (fcntl)
- chmod (default is 0o644)
- custom exceptions
PidFile can be used as a context manager:
from pid import PidFile with PidFile(): do_something()
PidFile can also be used a a decorator:
from pid.decorator import pidfile @pidfile def main(): pass if __name__ == "__main__": main()
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.
