import consul

c = consul.Consul()

# poll a key for updates
index = None
while True:
    index, data = c.kv.get('foo', index=index)
    print data['Value']

# in another process
c.kv.put('foo', 'bar')


pip install python-consul2

Note: When using python-consul library in environment with proxy server, setting of http_proxy, https_proxy and no_proxy environment variables can be required for proper functionality.


There’s a few API endpoints still to go to expose all features available in Consul v0.6.0. If you need an endpoint that’s not in the documentation, just open an issue and I’ll try and add it straight away.
