Rudimentary rethinkdb python library with some smarts, perhaps some dumbs

Project Description


Rudimentary rethinkdb python library with some smarts (and maybe some dumbs)

What? Why?

As of now there is a very small amount of code here. I had three projects using the Rethinker class, and had enough code churn inside the class that it became too painful to keep the three copies in sync. Thus, a library shared among them.

Three main purposes:

  • round-robin connections among database servers
  • make sure connections close at proper time
  • retry retry-able queries on failure

Not really a connection pool, because it doesn’t keep any connections open, but it does take care of connection management.

Service Registry

Now also has a ServiceRegistry class, a lightweight solution for service discovery for distributed services. Maintains service info and status in a rethinkdb table called “services”.


import rethinkstuff
r = rethinkstuff.Rethinker(['', '', ''], 'my_db')
for result in r.table('my_table'):
