GridGain CE binary client Python API

Project description


GridGain Community Edition thin (binary protocol) client, written in Python 3.


  • Python 3.4 or above (3.6 is tested),
  • Access to GridGain node, local or remote. The current thin client version was tested on GridGain CE 8.7 (binary client protocol versions 1.2.0 to 1.4.0).


From repository

This is a recommended way for users. If you only want to use the pygridgain module in your project, do:

$ pip install pygridgain

From sources

This way is more suitable for developers or if you install client from zip archive.

  1. Download and/or unzip GridGain Python client sources to gridgain_client_path
  2. Go to gridgain_client_path folder
  3. Execute pip install -e .
$ cd <gridgain_client_path>
$ pip install -e .

This will install the repository version of pygridgain into your environment in so-called “develop” or “editable” mode. You may read more about editable installs in the pip manual.

Then run through the contents of requirements folder to install the additional requirements into your working Python environment using

$ pip install -r requirements/<your task>.txt

You may also want to consult the setuptools manual about using

Updating from older version

To upgrade an existing package, use the following command:

pip install --upgrade pygridgain

To install the latest version of a package:

pip install pygridgain

To install a specific version:

pip install pygridgain==1.1.0


The package documentation is available at RTD for your convenience.

If you want to build the documentation from source, do the developer installation as described above, then run the following commands:

$ cd pygridgain
$ pip install -r requirements/docs.txt
$ cd docs
$ make html

Then open pygridgain/docs/generated/html/index.html in your browser.


Some examples of using pygridgain are provided in pygridgain/examples folder. They are extensively commented in the “Examples of usage” section of the documentation.

This code implies that it is run in the environment with pygridgain package installed, and GridGain node is running on localhost:10800.
