From Git

git clone git://
cd ./riakcached
pip install -r requirements.txt
python install

print client.get("hello")
# 'hello'

print client.get("hello")
# None

values = {

keys = ["hello", "foo", "test"]
print client.get_many(keys)
# {'foo': 'bar', 'hello': 'world'}


Connection Pool Settings

from riakcached.clients import RiakClient
from riakcached.pools import Urllib3Pool

pool = Urllib3Pool(base_url="", timeout=1)
client = RiakClient("my_bucket", pool=pool)


Custom Connection Pool

from riakcached.clients import RiakClient
from riakcache.pools import Pool

class CustomPool(Pool):
    __slots__ = ["connection"]

    def connect(self):
        self.connection = make_a_connection()

    def close(self):
        if self.connection:

    def request(self, method, url, body=None, headers=None):
        results = make_request(self.connection, method, url, body, headers, timeout=self.timeout)
        return results.status,, results.headers

custom_pool = CustomPool(base_url="", timeout=1)
client = RiakClient("my_bucket", pool=pool)

Threaded Client

The exists a riakcached.clients.ThreadedRiakClient which inherits from riakcached.clients.RiakClient and which uses threading to try to parallelize calls to get_many, set_many and delete_many.


The documentation can be found in the /docs directory in this repository and should be fairly complete for the codebase.
