Project Description

A small python library that helps you write co-routines
in an event-driven way. In short it 'sprinkles' data passed
to the '.sprinkle' function to all sub-classes of 'Task' in
a round robin manner.

A simple example:

from pysprinkler import Task, Sprinkler

class RemoteDBHandler(Task):

def __init__(self):
print("Started RemoteDBHandler")

def on_data(self, data):
print("RemoteDBHandler: {}".format(data))

def on_end(self):
print("Closing RemoteDBHandler")

class LocalDBHandler(Task):

def __init__(self):
print("Started LocalDBHandler")

def on_data(self, data):
print("LocalDBHandler: {}".format(data))

def on_end(self):
print("Closing LocalDBHandler")

class STNHandler(Task):

def __init__(self):
print("Started STNHandler")

def on_data(self, data):
print("STNHandler: {}".format(data))

def on_end(self):
print("Closing STNHandler")

rdb_handler = RemoteDBHandler()
ldb_handler = LocalDBHandler()
stn_handler = STNHandler()

s = Sprinkler([rdb_handler, ldb_handler, stn_handler])

lines = ["Line 1", "Line 2", "Line 3", "Line 4", "Line 5"]
for line in lines:
# sends 'line' to all 'Task's in a
# round robin manner
