threading.Thread wrapper with convenient functions

Project description


i just can’t be bothered to write the same boilerplate code over and over again. so i wrote it into a little library. it has the ‘android’ lifecycle in mind:

  • on_start (before the loop gets called)
  • work (in the loop)
  • on_stop (when the loop has finished)

also it has a useful function called ‘stop’

how to…

… install

pip3 install git+

… use it

from runnable import Runnable
from time import sleep

class ThreadedObject(Runnable):
    def __init__(self, **kwargs):  # not necessary but included for the sake of completeness
        Runnable.__init__(self, **kwargs)  # gotta super to Runnable as you would with Thread

    def on_start(self):
        print("we are going to run in a loop")

    def work(self):
        sleep(0.42)  # be nice to the cpu

    def on_stop(self):
        print("we finished working. time for beer")

o = ThreadedObject()
    o.join()  # Runnable inherits threading.Thread
except KeyboardInterrupt:
