A Python client for accessing Kyoto Tycoon via binary protocol

Project description

A lightweight Python client for accessing Kyoto Tycoon via its binary protocol.

The specification of the binary protocol is explained here.


$ pip install Cython
$ pip install python-kyototycoon-binary

Basic Usage

>>> from bkyototycoon import KyotoTycoonConnection
>>> client = KyotoTycoonConnection()
>>> client.set_bulk({'key1': 'value1', 'key2': 'value2'})
>>> client.get_bulk(['key1', 'key2', 'key3'])
{'key2': 'value2', 'key1': 'value1'}
>>> client.remove_bulk(['key1', 'key2'])
>>> client.get_bulk(['key1', 'key2', 'key3'])
{'key1': 'value1'}


In our benchmark tests, python-kyototycoon-binary was about 6-8 faster than python-kyototycoon.
