Redis pubsub non-blocking interface (With a thread).

Project Description

Blocking subscribe implementation of pyredis is annoying for some case. It is controllable with some technique, but here is a quick approach using a python thread.

Note: This implementation is good only for few situation.


>>> import redis
>>> redisc = redis.Redis()
>>> import redispubsub
>>> pubsub = redispubsub.RedisPubsub(redisc.pubsub())
>>> pubsub.subscribe('1') # You SHOULD subscribe before starting thread.
>>> pubsub.start() # Start the router
>>> pubsub.dequeue('1')
{'pattern': None, 'type': 'subscribe', 'channel': '1', 'data': 1L}
>>> redisc.publish('1', 'test')
>>> pubsub.dequeue('1') # None returned
>>> pubsub.dequeue('1')
{'pattern': None, 'type': 'message', 'channel': '1', 'data': 'test'}
>>> pubsub.dequeue('1') # None returned
