Lock script to allow only one instance

Project description

Build Status Requirements Status

Lock tool for scripts.

Package

Example

import time
import atexit

from scriptlock import Lock

lock = Lock()
atexit.register(lock.cleanup)  # Needed to clean the lock correctly

time.sleep(100)

Launch another one and see what happend

Workaround

The use of atexit is necessary to correctly clean the lock. We tried to use the del module but it caused issues with the logger.

Tests

Testing is set up using pytest and coverage is handled with the pytest-cov plugin.

Run your tests with py.test in the root directory.

Coverage is ran by default and is set in the pytest.ini file. To see an html output of coverage open htmlcov/index.html after running the tests.

TODO

Travis CI

There is a .travis.yml file that is set up to run your tests for python 2.7 and python 3.2, should you choose to use it.
