Set of python helpers to ease development

Project description


Welcome to pysol

Copyright (C) 2013/2017 Laurent Labatut / Laurent Champagnac

pysolbase is a set of python helpers to ease development.

It is gevent (co-routines) based.


Engage gevent monkey patching and setup default logger configuration:


Initialize logging system (without engaging gevent) with default configuration (ie console logs - there is support for syslog and file logs).


Re-initialize logging system (without engaging gevent):

SolBase.logging_init("DEBUG", True)

Millis helpers:

ms = SolBase.mscurrent()
ms_elapsed = SolBase.msdiff(ms)

Date helpers

dt = SolBase.datecurrent()
ms_elapsed = SolBase.datediff(dt)

Binary helpers

bin_buf = SolBase.unicode_to_binary('This is my text buffer', encoding='utf-8')
unicode_string = SolBase.binary_to_unicode(bin_buf, encoding='utf-8')

File helpers

FileUtility.append_text_to_file('/tmp/test.txt', 'This is my text buffer', 'utf-8')
bin_buf = FileUtility.file_to_binary('/tmp/test.txt')
unicode_string = FileUtility.file_to_text('/tmp/test.txt', 'utf-8')

Exception helper

   a = None
   b = a + 1
except Exception as e:
   logger.warn("Ex=%s", SolBase.extostr(e))

Source code

  • We are pep8 compliant (as far as we can, with some exemptions)
  • We use a right margin of 360 characters (please don't talk me about 80 chars)
  • All unittest files must begin with test_ or Test, should implement setUp and tearDown methods
  • All tests must adapt to any running directory
  • The whole project is backed by gevent (
  • We use docstring (:return, :rtype, :param, :type etc), they are mandatory
  • We use PyCharm "noinspection", feel free to use them


  • Debian 10 or greater, x64, Python 3.7


To run unittests, you will need:

  • nothing special except Python and dependencies requirements.
