Small, interoperable, automagic RPC library.
QuickRPC is a library that is designed for quick and painless setup of communication channels and Remote-call protocols.
Python 3 only
A remote interface is defined like so:
from quickrpc import RemoteAPI, incoming, outgoing class EchoAPI(RemoteAPI): '''Demo of how to use RemoteAPI. EchoAPI answers incoming `say` calls with an `echo` call. ''' @incoming def say(self, sender="", text=""): pass @outgoing def echo(self, receivers=None, text=""): pass
The interface is used over a Transport, which might e.g. be a TCP connection or Stdio:
api = EchoAPI(codec='jsonrpc', transport='tcpserv::8888') # on incoming "say", call "echo" api.say.connect(lambda sender="", text="": api.echo(text=text)) # transport starts in a new thread. api.transport.start() input('Serving on :8888 - press ENTER to stop') api.transport.stop()
That’s it! You could now connect to the server e.g. via telnet:
$ telnet localhost 8888 say text:"hello"
(Exit via Ctrl+5 -> “quit”)
Requirements: Basically none, except for Python >= 3. For the QtTransports, PyQt4 is required.
pip install https://github.com/loehnertj/quickrpc/archive/master.zip
Or, download / clone and use python setup.py install.

This is a hobby project. If you need something quick, contact me or better, send a pull request. :-)
Things I might add in the future: In-process “loopback” transport; Serial interface transport; msgpack Codec.
SSH support would be really cool but don’t hold your breath for that.
